Department of Labor highlights more than 1,000 planned clean energy projects with potential for good-paying jobs on new interactive map

Online tool informs unions, workers, public about new opportunities on local projects

WASHINGTON – The Department of Labor today announced the launch of an interactive map to help workers, unions and the public learn more about the tens of thousands of jobs being created nationwide by more than 1,000 planned clean energy projects, in line with the Biden-Harris administration’s commitment to creating good jobs while tackling the climate crisis.

The Inflation Reduction Act offers strong incentives for clean energy projects to create high-quality and union jobs that pay prevailing wages and use Registered Apprenticeship programs. The new map showcases clean energy projects that may be eligible for enhanced federal tax credits if they meet these requirements.

“This map is a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Labor and other federal agencies to help ensure that the Biden-Harris administration’s historic climate investments create good-paying jobs,” said Acting Secretary Julie Su. “By producing new tools like this one, we are helping to facilitate partnerships between employers and unions that can yield worker-centric practices and valuable training opportunities for this wave of new clean energy jobs.”

The map allows users to sort planned clean energy projects by sector and state and learn more about each project’s location, name, status and size, companies involved and the estimated number of construction jobs supporting the project. Drawn from publicly available data, the map’s information does not indicate eligibility for federal tax incentives and does not constitute federal taxpayer information.
