The 2009 report, The Clean Energy Economy, found that the clean energy economy is emerging as a vital component of America's economic landscape. As a leader and an employer in this emerging field, you know that America's clean energy economy is one of the fastest growing industries in the country and is poised for additional explosive growth. in fact, jobs that make up the clean energy economy grew nearly two and a half times faster than U.S. jobs overall between 1998 and 2007. These are the jobs driving economic growth and environmental sustainability at a time when America desperately needs both.
The global clean energy economy grew 30 percent in 2010, attracting $243 billion in private investment. Since 2004, the sector has grown 630 percent. This represents a remarkable economic opportunity for America. But we are falling behind.
A strong national energy policy is needed. It will ensure markets for clean energy economy goods and services as well as send a signal to investors and the market that the time for greater investment in clean energy businesses is now.
America just can't wait.
