"Over the last decade, Indiana has grown its wind generation output from virtually zero in 2008 to 6.5% percent in 2020."

    Lightcast, which collected and analyzed original data for WorkingNation's multi-state Green Jobs Now project, estimates that there already are more than 11,678 workers in Indiana's green economy, a moderate amount when compared to other states.

    "Green Jobs Now: Indiana" identifies the state's most in-demand green skills - "energy conservation," "energy efficiency" and "renewable energy" knowledge, according to the data - and occupations where green skills matter. It suggests certain workers could get annual salary boosts of perhaps $800 or more by applying green skills, with boosts upwards of $8,000 for some positions. That demonstrates the value to workers of learning green skills and to local economies of having training available as the federal government begins to deploy a $1.2 trillion infrastructure investment that should boost green jobs nationwide.

    In Indiana, Lightcast estimates 1,146,364 workers, if given access to training, could be reskilled into green jobs.

    As part of Nissan’s Ambition 2030 plan, the company is prioritizing electric vehicles and advanced technologies, and by 2030, 40 percent of Nissan vehicle sales will be fully electric, with more to be electrified. Additionally, earlier this year Nissan announced two all-new, all-electric models at the Canton assembly plant in Mississippi.

    The State of Virginia has given the go ahead for Dominion Energy’s 2.6-gigawatt (GW) Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) farm, the largest offshore wind project currently planned for U.S. waters.

    CVOW will consist of 176 wind turbines to be constructed 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, generating enough energy to power up to 660,000 homes starting in 2026.

    The project has now recieved the approval of the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC), affirming the project meets all Virginia statutory requirements for rider cost recovery and the issuance of a Certificate of Public
