Volunteer State moves up one spot in national ranking of clean energy jobs

The sixth annual “Clean Jobs America” report has just been produced and issued by E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs), a national, nonpartisan group of business leaders, investors, and professionals from every sector of the economy who advocate for smart policies that are good for the economy and good for the environment.

While the sector lost almost 120,000 jobs in 2020, Tennessee moved up one spot in the national rankings. It was 16th in 2019 with 79,626 jobs in the sector that year and is now ranked 15th with 72,952 clean energy jobs that represent 2.5 percent of the total workforce in the state.
