The Clean Energy report compares how Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming–five states with vast traditional and clean energy resources–are taking advantage of clean energy and energy efficiency opportunities to create green jobs.
These energy-related activities are now among the strongest segments of the green economy and show promise during these turbulent economic times. This study identifies many of the opportunities and challenges facing the five states as well as the implications for each state’s economic prosperity.
