Michigan Green Manufacturing Action Plan: Next Steps in a Clean Energy Manufacturing Policy
"The Michigan Green Manufacturing Action Plan: Next Steps in a Clean Energy Manufacturing Policy" provides a road map for smart state-level policies that will create good manufacturing job creation in the state.
In recent years, Michigan has made great strides in setting the policy framework needed to succeed in the competition for clean energy manufacturing jobs. These programs, amplified by temporary funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, have been very effective in stimulating the growth of a nascent clean energy manufacturing sector in Michigan, building on the state’s considerable manufacturing capacity, skilled workforce, and natural resources.
In order to offer advice on what additional steps Michigan can take to win the competition for clean energy manufacturing jobs, the Michigan BlueGreen Apollo Alliance has convened a task force of representatives from the business, investor, labor, policy, and environmental communities. The following are the Michigan BlueGreen Apollo Alliance Green Manufacturing Action Plan (GreenMAP) policy recommendations.
