Advanced Transportation and Renewable Energy represents an array of clean energy technologies that form a critical part of California’s strategy for reducing its climate change impact, as well as growing a robust green economy. California has always been a world leader in clean energy technologies, but to advance our competitiveness a superior workforce, skilled for the rapidly changing clean energy technologies, must exist.
