Foreword The U.S. electric power sector is changing and modernizing in response to societal and market forces. Power companies face a business imperative to meet increasing pressures for cleaner, more efficient energy that will safeguard public health and protect the world’s climate. These forces are already transforming the industry. Significant capital investment has been flowing in recent years to cleaner technologies such as renewable energy, energy
(O&M) employees who will keep the modernized facilities running. The report ﬁnds that investments driven by the EPA’s two new air quality rules will create nearly 1.5 million jobs, or nearly 300,000 jobs a year on average over the next ﬁve years – and at a critical moment for a struggling economy. The end product will be an upgraded, cleaner American industry, along with good paying jobs and better health for the
The largest estimated job gains are in Illinois, (122,695), Virginia, (123,014), Tennessee, (113,138), North Carolina (76,966) and Ohio (76,240). In states with net O&M job reductions, projected gains in capital improvement jobs will provide enough work to fully offset the O&M job reductions. The construction of pollution controls will create a significant, near-term increase in new jobs. O&M job reductions are likely to occur later in the period.

This paper describes and quantifies the 14 BASIC sectors (Economic Drivers) upon which all economic activity in the state depends. Without them, the Alaska economy would not exist. Each of these 14 BASIC sectors draws money into the state, which directly generates revenues for businesses, wages and jobs for Alaskans, and other income. As Alaska businesses and households spend this new money within the state, additional revenues, wages, and jobs are created in other businesses (NON-BASIC sectors) through a process known as the economic multiplier
