Ohio in Prime Position to Fill Green Energy Gaps

Ohio should look to its roots in manufacturing – and its expertise in developing new technologies – to spur the state's job growth in the green economy, according to a new Ohio State University policy brief.

"Making Green Jobs Work for Ohio," was written by research assistant Amanda Weinstein and Mark Partridge, Swank Professor of Urban Policy in the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics. It examines the State's alternative energy policies and green job subsidies and makes recommendations for policymakers to consider.
