By Chris Potter (Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin) As Binghamton University continues to haul in grant money to grow the Southern Tier’s battery economy, a new event debuting this week will showcase the region’s transition to clean energy manufacturing.
The first-ever Greater Binghamton Clean Energy Careers Summit and Job Fair is set for Wednesday, Sept. 27 at the DoubleTree at 225 Water St. The event will connect job-seekers with employers hoping to increase their workforce in the Southern Tier, while also highlighting how clean energy jobs are driving economic growth and sustainability in the region.
More than 1,000 jobs are currently available in the Southern Tier’s clean energy sector, according to the Binghamton-based Network for a Sustainable Tomorrow (NEST). An additional 10,000 to 15,000 jobs are expected to be created over the next decade.
