As the U.S. renewable energy economy expands, intentional commitments for equitable economic and workforce development will be critical to achieving the nation’s just transition objectives and building a diverse domestic manufacturing supply chain. Recognizing clean energy manufacturing as a significant opportunity for U.S. economic growth, the federal government and states are undertaking actions to help onshore manufacturing and develop more robust domestic renewable energy and battery storage supply chains.

This report “Opportunities to Diversify the U.S. Renewable Energy Manufacturing Supply Chain” released by the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and BW Research Partnership identifies existing minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs) within the utility-scale wind, solar, and battery storage manufacturing supply chains; assesses existing supplier selection practices; and highlights opportunities to foster the growth of MWBEs and improve sector diversity.
