Phone Briefing: Clean Energy Economy

  • June 10, 2009

The Pew Charitable Trusts published a report detailing the nation's clean energy economy, providing the first-ever hard count across all 50 states of environmentally friendly jobs, businesses and investments. The report:

  •  shows how job growth in the clean energy economy has performed relative to the overall economy,
  • looks at policies and investments that are poised to drive future growth,
  • provides examples of specific companies and states that are leading the way in this sector,
  • presents a clear, data-driven definition for the clean energy economy, and
  • provides a framework for policy makers and the private sector to track jobs, investments, business creation and growth over time.

Above is a link to recording of press call held on June 10 with the following participants:

 • Lori Grange, Interim Deputy Director, Pew Center on the States
 • Phyllis Cuttino, Director, U.S. Global Warming Campaign, Pew Environment Group
 • Kil Huh, Project Director, Pew Center on the States
 • David Prend, Director, National Venture Capital Association
