Poised for Profit: How Clean Energy Can Power the Next High-Tech Job Surge in the Northwest

This 2001 report examines global markets for clean energy and prospects for developing a competitive, export-oriented clean energy industry in the Pacific Northwest. Prospects for establishing leadership in the development, manufacture and distribution of clean energy technologies and related services are explored. Although there are potential synergies with increasing local clean energy supplies, an important objective in its own right, this analysis focuses on the unique opportunities, challenges and benefits associated with building industry leadership along the lines of the Danish wind turbine industry. Download the report.
