Cleantech Pathways Event

Join Grid Catalyst, Clean Energy Economy Minnesota, Fresh Energy, and Saint Paul College for an exciting event for students and community members interested in green jobs.

We will have a short program, featuring Taj Ahmad Eldridge, who will share his experience with Jobs for the Future and investing in energy and climate entrepreneurs. He will be joined by other local leaders to share more about opportunities for students and those interested in career pathways focused on a more sustainable future. This includes working on electric vehicles and charging, solar and wind installation, building energy efficiency and electrification, construction, utility operations, geothermal, and more.
