DCTC Awarded $99,891 MSESP Grant

College partnering with Siemens Energy to train smart grid workforce

DCTC was one of 14 grantees to receive a green grant from the Minnesota State Energy Sector Partnership, or MSESP. The grants, totaling more than $1.1 million, are slated to train Minnesota workers for positions linked to industries focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy. The grant awarded to DCTC and its partners is $99,891.

The U.S. Department of Labor funds MSESP through a three-year, $6 million grant designed to spur workforce development in industries related to energy efficiency in construction, renewable electric power, and biofuels.

Partnering with Siemens Energy, Inc., Minnesota State Community & Technical College in Wadena, Minn., Lake Superior College in Duluth, Minnesota West Community and Technical College in Jackson, Minn., and MnTAP, or the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program, DCTC will be working to develop an intentionally integrated mobile training system designed to produce a highly skilled electric power sector workforce in the area of clean-energy smart grid technology.
