Workforce Development

Workforce Development
As the world transitions to renewable and distributed energy, it is vital that the electrical workforce be ready to tackle the corresponding safety and technical challenges – from residential to utility-scale, and across the entire project lifecycle. Developing that hands-on know-how is mission critical – but requires significant investments in facilities, equipment, and curricula. You need a partner who can make the most of your budget. With capabilities in both research and construction, ProtoGen thinks beyond the blueprint and sees what traditional EPCs can’t.

ProtoGen works with academia, non-profits, industry organizations, and others to develop programs and strategies to advance their workforce development goals around microgrids, energy storage, solar, EV infrastructure, and more. Our capabilities include:

  • Vision planning
  • Curriculum development
  • Course content development
  • Program management
  • Train-the-trainer
  • Vision planning
  • Training facilities project development
  • Equipment testing and analysis
  • Research Project Development and Execution
