New Reports on Economic Development Potential of Nascent Clean Energy Markets

IEDC is releasing new research on three nascent clean energy markets: electric vehicles, offshore wind energy and net-zero energy homes. These are transformative technologies for the United States that have not been widely deployed, yet their job creation potential is great, alongside the environmental and other benefits they bring. Supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the report aims to help economic developers unlock the potential of these industries to grow local wealth, jobs and investment. "Creating the Clean Energy Economy" discusses the sectors’ economic development benefits in detail, hurdles to market development and strategies to help overcome these hurdles.

All reports (PDF) are free for both IEDC members and non members.
