Green Workforce Development Study and Energy Efficiency Supply Chain Study

BERK identified federal and state funding expected to flow into the four-county Puget Sound Region to support an emerging “green economy” and foster job creation. The green economy sectors studied included Green Building, Clean Energy Production/Distribution, Environmental Protection/Remediation, and Transportation.

The study also provided a framework to estimate jobs supported per $1 million dollars of expenditure in the region in the Green Building and Clean Energy sectors, along with descriptions of the types of jobs that may be created.
