nergies," said Hugo Villar, director of science and technology at UC San Diego Extension. "The university has been a leader in helping adult learners acquire new knowledge and skills that allow them to transition out of stagnant areas of the job market and participate into more vibrant areas as we are doing now with biofuels."

"This program is not only training workers for new jobs in the local economy, it will eventually help our nation become less dependent on foreign oil," said Mayfield. "The bioenergy sector will eventually be creating millions of jobs nationwide. Our biggest challenge will be to keep those jobs in California."

The grant involves the work of a number of local partners, which include UC San Diego, San Diego State University, Mira Costa College EDGE program, SD-CAB, CleanTECH San Diego, BIOCOM Institute, BIOCOM, San Diego Workforce Partnership and the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation.

"With this training, these students are prepared to support the region's growing biofuels companies and help San Diego continue to be a leader in the biofuels sector," said Jason Anderson, vice president of CleanTECH San Diego, a non-profit organization that is helping to accelerate San Diego as a world leader in the clean technology economy.

San Diego is widely recognized as one of the world's leaders in biofuels research and development. A recent analysis, conducted by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), found that for the algal biofuels sector alone, the industry provides the region with 410 direct jobs and $56 million in direct economic activity and $108 million in total economic activity annually. 

"It's critical that we build the research and development infrastructure for the biofuels industry here," said Mayfield. "Right now, we have a head start on the rest of the world and we can't afford to lose that."

Thanks to the $4-million EDGE grant, San Diego has also become a national
