Abstract

The term green jobs has been widely used to describe jobs in businesses that are particularly related to renewable energy, energy efficiency, or environmental sustainability. The Business and Economic Research Center has partnered with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development to estimate the economic impact of six ground-breaking green investments in Tennessee: Hemlock Semiconductor, Wacker Chemie AG, Volkswagen, Nissan Leaf and Storage Battery Manufacturing, Tennessee Solar Institute and West Tennessee Solar Farm, and eTec Battery Charging Stations. The purpose of this study is to estimate the economic impact of the investments on Tennessee's economy. This study addresses the following major research questions: Where can the six major green investments be classified within the national and local green activity frameworks? How many green jobs will be created with these investments? What are the major occupations associated with these green investments?
