Project Green Job Creation and Regional Economic Opportunities at the State Level

Associated Publications:

The US green jobs project models the job creation capacity of the energy industry across the United States in the next decades. This model is based on an empirical approach, basing estimates of job creation on surveys of actual hiring and direct job creation in different sub-sectors of the energy industry. Relying on these data, we are then able to forecast job creation potential at the state level based on current energy sector structure, current and proposed energy regulations and fossil fuel as well as clean energy standards.  The model and the data are available and interactive via downloadable spreadsheets and interactive online map.
