"There is a clear link between clean energy and economic development," Ron Ruggiero, field director for the Apollo Alliance, told workshop participants here at the America's Future NOW! conference June 8.
According to Ruggiero, "Clean energy can lead to a manufacturing revival in this country."
"First we need to create the market demand for green manufacturing through policy priorities," Ruggiero said. "Second, we need to invest in capacity to meet demand. Third, we need to capture the jobs and economic opportunity."
