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


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.
