Western North Carolina’s clean energy economy (energy efficiency + renewable energy +alternative fuels and vehicle technologies) opportunities include a rapidly growing clean energy business sector, driven in part by federal stimulus funds, and strong educational, workforce development, entrepreneurial, recruitment and social infrastructure. Previous work indicates that the region has a unique opportunity to become a leader in the Southeast and attract greater levels of investment as a hub of clean energy business activity. Evidence of a strong economic cluster of clean energy businesses is emerging in WNC, and is the opportunity addressed by this project.
