The world is rapidly moving to a “clean and green” economy where new “green practices” and environmentally benign, low carbon, clean energy systems provide key strategic advantages and long-term cost savings to businesses, communities, schools and other organizations.
Capital investment is flowing into clean energy technologies, accelerated by significant federal and state investments and evolving policies that together strengthen the economics of clean energy and energy efficiency implementations.
Michigan has enormous strengths that align optimally with the newly emerging clean energy economy. Michigan’s unparalleled strengths in research, engineering and advanced manufacturing technology, our outstanding universities and community college system and our workforce transformation programs, give Michigan businesses the upper hand in competing for new “green” and clean energy opportunities.
Our municipalities and local governments, large and small, recognize that adopting green practices and clean energy innovations can help transform their communities, making them more attractive, interesting, desirable, and livable places for both families and entrepreneurs.
On the immediate horizon are new clean energy sectors holding the greatest promise and opportunity to transform Michigan’s economy and its communities.
Cost effective, efficient adoption of clean energy opportunities and green practices require detailed knowledge and understanding of the technologies, evolving policies, funding opportunities and key players.
