The National Governors Association (NGA) Center for Best Practices released a series of reports analyzing emerging green economies in each state. To varying degrees, the profiles show every state is witnessing growth in at least one green industry segment, and more often than not, this business growth stems from existing strengths in the state.

Analyzing a state’s green economy in scope of green business activity reveals areas of comparative advantage, promising areas for work force development and opportunities for building partnerships within and across green industry segments. This information helps states form strategies to grow green economies. Additionally, the reports show the extent to which each state’s business base is poised to meet the coming demand for green technologies and products such as highly efficient appliances, renewable energy generation systems, high-efficiency building materials and low-emission fuels. Each state green profile provides an analysis of the green business activity in the state from 2000–2007 (the most recent year data is available) and patent activity from 1994–2008.
