Clean Tech Cluster Analysis Update for the Puget Sound Region

BERK worked collaboratively with the Puget Sound Regional Council to assess the size and scope of the region’s clean tech cluster, as well as strengths and opportunities for growth. We analyzed historic employment growth, projected future growth, and described trends in clean tech venture capital investment.

To fully describe the context within which the region’s clean tech industry operates, we presented a summary of relevant policy direction at the federal, state, and local level and developed an ecosystem map that visually displays the key players, relationships, and inputs that make up the region’s clean tech industry. The report is serving as a foundational piece for the region’s economic development efforts to grow this important sector.
