World : How Ohio can capture $25 billion worth of clean energy growth

A new report says expanding clean energy could attract major investments and 20,000 new jobs over the next 20 years.

Ohio risks missing out on roughly $25 billion in investments and 20,000 new jobs over the next two decades if state officials don’t take steps soon to expand clean energy, according to a new analysis.

Synapse Energy Economics of Cambridge, Massachusetts, released its second Powering Ohio report, which was funded by the Environmental Defense Fund with input from a variety of businesses and research institutions. Researchers and Ohio business leaders spoke about the Nov. 13 plan later that day during a webinar.

The report details nine steps state leaders could take to capture new clean energy jobs and investments. They include new policies, programs and infrastructure that could help attract workers and manufacturers.
