Geothermal Power a Leader in Permanent Job Creation
WASHINGTON — Geothermal power plants are a leading provider of permanent, on-site employment in California and the West. As part of its annual industry assessment roll out, the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) released preliminary data showing that there were 3,150 permanent, on-site employees at their power plants, or 1.17 permanent jobs per megawatt installed. This is 19 times reported onsite employment of wind projects and 5 times reported onsite employment for solar projects according to GEA. “In addition to environmental and reliability benefits, geothermal power has important economic values to local communities,” noted Ben Matek, GEA’s Industry Analyst & Research Projects Manager. “While geothermal produces many more construction and manufacturing jobs, as do most technologies, we believe it is a leader in creating stable, permanent employment in the communities in which geothermal plants operate.” Heraldonline.com

America's Fastest-Growing Cities 2015
When Prasant Pallikandi wanted to open the U.S. branch of his brand communication firm in Boston, his first step was sizing up the competition. The results were disheartening: for every 15 companies Pallikandi identified to target as potential clients, he counted one established branding firm he’d have to edge out. “It was a little overwhelming to say the least,” he says. “Being a startup and having to compete with these guys—I was like, how am I going to do that?” Forbes

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Just look around at what's happening in the aerospace industry in the American South. Aerospace is really making a move to become one of the region's top two industry sectors. It’s not there yet, but if large project counts are any indication, aerospace may soon challenge the petrochemicals sector as the second largest industry in the region. Never before has the aerospace industry been so important to the South's economy. Oh, what's the No. 1 industry sector in the South? Automotive is, of course. That industry hasn't been challenged much for 25 years in this region, or since we’ve been counting.

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?

If you have ever seen one of my presentations, then you know about the word "reshoring" and how that phenomenon has lifted the spirits of even the most skeptical Southerners regarding the future of the region's economy. After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
