The American Jobs Project seeks to provide a research-driven guide for state and local leaders who want to ensure quality jobs for Washingtonians.
The Washington Jobs Project: A Guide to Creating Jobs in Grid Modernization was created by the American Jobs Project in partnership with the University of Washington and Western Washington University. Information was obtained from dozens of interviews with government, nonprofit, academic, and business leaders in Washington.
The report summarizes Washington’s competitive advantage in grid modernization. It provides a guide for growing state industry by capitalizing on growing market opportunities and aligning manufacturing with critical economic system components — including access to capital, innovation ecosystems, and workforce development.
According to the report, with the right policies, Washington’s grid modernization industry could employ an average of 13,800 Washingtonians annually over the next 13 years.
The Washington Jobs Project is intended to stimulate discussion of future growth potential and opportunities for barrier removal in the grid modernization industry.
