A survey suggested advanced energy employment in Iowa is more than 22,000 strong and on pace to reach nearly 24,000 jobs in 2015. The report is a first-ever survey by the Advanced Energy Economy Institute. The AEE Institute published a similar report on California’s advanced energy industry. Based on this survey of more than 2,000 companies doing business in California, advanced energy employment in the state is currently 431,800. Employers are optimistic about the future as well, with about half of all firms expecting to add employees during the coming year, for more than 70,000 new jobs – a 17% projected increase, for California.
