The renewable energy industry continues to evolve and grow here in Massachusetts. Thanks in large part to landmark legislation like the Green Communities Act and Green Jobs Act, both signed by Governor Deval Patrick in 2008, the Commonwealth has seen impressive job growth in the industry over the past several years. Renewable energy, one of four segments of the clean energy sector, includes the development, design, financing and construction of technologies as diverse as photovoltaic, wind, solar, biomass and geothermal.

The industry’s growth was included in the 2012 Massachusetts Clean Energy Industry Report, completed by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, an agency charged with accelerating job growth and economic development in the state's clean energy industry.
