As American as apple pie

This week’s election—and a rousing victory speech from U.S. Senator-elect Sherrod Brown that included his vision of Ohio as “the Silicon Valley of Alternative Energy”—confirms more than a desire for generic change. It solidifies that our economic and national security outlook will be based on renewable and alternative forms of energy, and that those values have entered the mainstream.

GreenCityBlueLake has been following the alternative energy conversation, which continued this week at WIRE-Net’s meeting on “Manufacturing opportunities in advanced energy.” Cleveland-area manufacturers were introduced to the economic potential of this emerging market and heard about specific opportunities to capitalize on their existing lines of industry. Read about the meeting, get an update on fuel cell development, and then contribute your thoughts on how Northeast Ohio can capitalize on its manufacturing heritage to become a leader in the creation of an advanced energy economy.
