RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Have you heard about cleantech, the ‘third wave’ of job growth in the Triangle? OK, maybe not, but did you read WRAL TechWire’s recent story about the accelerated growth of cleantech jobs in North Carolina, or see that Governor Cooper plans to reduce North Carolina’s carbon emissions 40% by 2025?
Even if you haven’t, it’s time you knew: cleantech is a world-changing industry, and it’s growing in leaps and bounds right here in the Triangle.
I’m proud to announce a new partnership between the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster (RTCC) and WRAL TechWire to show how the cleantech industry impacts our daily lives and adds value to the region, the state, and the world. I look forward to sharing the successes of the hundreds of organizations and thousands of employees here in the Triangle region who are solving the world’s most critical problems through clean technology.
