Houston Investing in Its Future Hydrogen 劳动力 with New Development Strategy

Addressing a growing skills gap by closing economic disparities will be critical as Houston’s hydrogen economy grows. 抓住这个机会, the Greater Houston Partnership's UpSkill休斯顿 initiative, Accenture and the Center for Houston’s Future (CHF) have launched a new workforce development initiative that aims to help people in disadvantaged communities (DACs) secure good jobs in the emerging hydrogen economy by bridging the skills gap through training and skill development. According to the executive summary of a forthcoming white paper, the strategy will target high-demand and good-paying, middle-skilled hydrogen jobs through a skill-matching process based on skill transferability, 除其他因素外, as well as tailored learning journeys that will provide pathways from education to employment. This will require collaborating with key stakeholders across the hydrogen economy, 包括本地工业雇主, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations. 合作伙伴包括液化空气集团, 雪佛龙公司, bp, 布鲁姆皇冠HGA010官方下载, Calpine, 陶氏, 高的, 林德, 壳牌, SLB, Brazosport大学, 休斯顿社区学院, 李大学, 孤身学院, 圣哈辛托学院, United Way of Greater Houston and Gulf Coast 劳动力解决方案. The learning journeys will help people increase their earning potential and provide career stability by having direct access to the hydrogen sector. “The future growth of the hydrogen industry in Houston and the Gulf Coast provides the region with the opportunity to collaborate with business and industry to rewire the talent pathways into the hydrogen sector and increase economic mobility and opportunity for residents of communities historically underserved.” - Peter Beard, SVP, Regional 员工发展 The consortium aims to work with community stakeholders and educational institutions to align career and technical education (CTE) in high schools with dual credit in community colleges.

"This region plays a key role in supplying lower-carbon hydrogen and ammonia, which will require a skilled local workforce that will be positioned to execute these projects.” According to research conducted by McKinsey and CHF, Texas - and the Gulf Coast region as a whole - are already the nation’s largest hydrogen producers with more than 1,000 miles of dedicated hydrogen pipelines and 48 hydrogen production plants. The region is also home to a diverse array of 皇冠HGA010官方下载 resources, including a large concentration of academic and industry-driven 皇冠HGA010官方下载 innovation, 先进的基础设施, 以及高技能的劳动力. 展望未来的皇冠HGA010官方下载结构, hydrogen is anticipated to be twelve percent of the total 皇冠HGA010官方下载 consumption by 2050, 根据国际皇冠HGA010官方下载署. In its Houston as a Hydrogen Hub – 2050 Snapshot report, 休斯顿未来研究中心预测会有170人,000电位直流电, indirect and induced jobs could be created in the hydrogen economy, as well as an additional $100 billion for Texas’ gross domestic product. 了解更多关于UpSkill休斯顿的信息.
