In recognition of “Careers in Energy Week” in Michigan, we’re helping increase public awareness of energy-focused options in the workforce. As Michigan’s energy sector transforms to develop cleaner technology with energy efficient methods, it’s essential to invest time into enhancing workers’ skills. The sustainability of Michigan’s energy industry depends on it.
We’re pleased to work with DTE Energy and the Michigan Energy Workforce Development Consortium to support and raise awareness for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. The energy sector in Michigan:
- Employs 84,000 people and creates more than 1,200 new opportunities a year
- Consumers Energy and DTE Energy combine to provide 500 co-op and internship opportunities every year
