BAS Ecosystem Marketplace

Building Automation Systems (BAS) is not a monolithic occupational term. Several existing technical descriptions of BAS share a common set of theoretical concepts as well as technical similarities. However, it is prudent to describe and define BAS as an ecosystem of interrelated occupations from workforce perspectives. 

BAS Careers - Challenges

  • A severe shortage of skilled BAS workforce
  • Lack of skills and training
  • Inadequate BAS education curricula and programs
  • A lower number of women and minorities in the workforce
  • Lack of awareness about the STEM-enriched occupation

BAS – A Promising Career

  • High-wage, high-salary stable jobs
  • Portable skills to apply in other automation sectors
  • Built on foundations of STEM and Sustainability
  • Rapid career growth trajectory from entry-level to mid-level management
  • Internship opportunities often lead to full-time employment

21st Century BAS Skills

Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are impacting the workforce needs in energy and related occupations. BAS professionals will be expected to acquire and balance a diverse set of competencies–the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) to achieve workplace success. According to McKinsey's research report, the most robust growth for demands will be in technological skills, which will rise by 55% by 2030. ACP's marketplace studies find that a balance of foundational competencies combined with general-and specific-industry technical KSAs will prepare a skilled workforce for the 21st century BAS jobs.
