Clean Energy Markets: Jobs and Opportunities

Clean Energy Markets: Jobs and Opportunities

The Pew Center on Global Climate Change has released two new issue briefs concerning the potential benefits of market-based clean energy and climate solutions. The first, Clean Energy Markets: Jobs and Opportunities (18 pages, PDF), looks at the potential of clean energy technology investments to generate economic growth and create jobs in the United States and around the world, while the second, Carbon Market Design and Oversight: A Short Overview (15 pages, PDF), examines key considerations for Congress in creating the optimal design and oversight mechanisms to ensure a viable, transparent, and robust carbon market. Those considerations include the assessment of potential regulatory agencies and the examination of exchange-based and over-the-counter markets.
