U.S. Manufacturing in the Clean Energy Economy: State-Level Efforts to Ensure a Domestic Clean Energy Supply Chain
Session I: Thursday, March 15, 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Concentration: Clean Energy Manufacturing
How can states play a role in ensuring a clean energy manufacturing base in America? While policies to scale-up clean energy technologies are stalled on the federal level, many states are still making investments in clean energy projects and installations. As states take these bold steps towards the clean energy economy, how can they ensure domestic manufacturing takes the leap with them? This workshop will explore the various state-based procurement initiatives underway to ensure that the state funds used to pay for clean energy projects place a preference on American-made components in order to effectively grow and sustain a clean energy manufacturing base in America.
