Discussing Green Job Growth at the Global New Energy Summit

This Wednesday, April 11, I will join executives from a range of cleantech companies on the Green Jobs Forum panel at the 2012 Global New Energy Summit in Colorado Springs, Colo. Green jobs have substantial influence on improving the U.S. job market, and this panel should prove to host an interesting discussion. Exactly how are green tech companies encouraging job creation? What is the expected growth outlook? These are inevitable questions that will arise during the event.


A short 18 months ago, Ioxus had 19 employees. With fast growth and our acquisition of Power Systems, we have since expanded to nearly 80 employees. We’re still looking to hire more. Plus, this year we will move manufacturing facilities from Japan to New York, bringing even more jobs to the U.S. Ioxus is just one company; imagine the possibilities if this job creation spread to thousands of other small companies just like ours.

Cleantech manufacturing solidifies the U.S. economy and provides the support necessary to increase the U.S.’ renewable energy output while decreasing reliance on fossil fuels. It’s no secret that green technology is a growing industry, and job creation is only one result of that growth. We’ve been talking about this for a while now, so this panel of key clean energy players should make for an interesting discussion.
