Clean Economy Manufacturing Center

The Clean Economy Manufacturing Center (CEMC) helps manufacturers, public officials, and economic development organizations capitalize on the opportunities presented by the fast-growing clean economy.


The CEMC conducts market and policy analysis on the growth of manufacturing in the clean energy economy.

The Center has undertaken a number of research projects related to manufacturing opportunities in the wind, solar, and advanced transportation sectors, as well as helping communities advance economic development job creation strategies in the clean energy economy.

Recently, the Center released a national database of energy-efficient housing products for use in multi-family homes. This database is designed to better inform those who select materials for residential retrofits about U.S. manufactured product options. It also as helps identify potential health hazards associated with certain energy-efficient products and the available alternatives. To date, close to 1300 U.S. manufacturing sites—mostly Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s)—producing energy and water efficient products have been included in this database.

Additionally, this tool provides material supply chain information for both current and potential product manufacturers and insight regarding energy-efficient product markets, major players—including what they manufacture and within what Tier—and where products come from, be it regionally, nationally, or internationally.
