In the spring of 2013, the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) released a report with support from the Energy Foundation, The Solar Foundation, and the Wind Energy Foundation. Understanding Renewable Energy Businesses: Aligning Renewable Energy Firms and Economic Developers┬áprovides economic development officers valuable insight into which policies and incentives renewable energy firms deem the most important to their sustained growth. This report is designed as a complement to IEDC’s 2011 Powering Up┬áreport, which surveyed economic developers on their strategies for supporting the renewable energy industries.
