Research: Green Works

California's energy-efficiency policies created nearly 1.5 million jobs from 1977 to 2007, while eliminating fewer than 25,000, according to a study conducted by David Roland-Holst, an economist at the Center for Energy, Resources and Economic Sustainability at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Green Collar Economy is already a reality. In this book, Van Jones "illustrates the link between the struggle to restore the environment and the need to revive the US economy. He demonstrates conclusively that the best solutions for the survivability of our planet are also the best solutions for everyday Americans." (Al Gore)

In The Clean Tech Revolution, Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder uncover the profits and potential of the new industrial revolution in this definitive book on clean technology—technologies designed to provide superior performance at lower costs, greatly reducing the world’s dependence on “dirty” fossil-based energy sources and other environmentally damaging products.

Take a look at Ron Pernick's syllabus for his course Clean-Technology Markets, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship at Portland State University.
