Regional Case Studies of Alternative Energy Lead to a Vision

A new report released in October by the Center for American Progress focuses on low carbon economic development strategies to create jobs and increase climate change resiliency in six U.S. regions. Edited by Kate Gordon and Kiley Kroh, the chapters are authored by local contributors, and report on: Offshore wind on the Atlantic Coast; coastal restoration in the Gulf Coast; energy efficiency in the Southeast; advanced vehicle manufacturing in the Midwest; wind power and solar power development and distribution in the Mountain West; and solar power innovation and installation on the Pacific Coast. The report concludes with recommendations for a future national energy policy for the U.S. and for policies for each of the regions discussed.
