Plant-by-Plant Interactive Map Shows Reach of Clean Vehicle Manufacturing and Jobs Across the U.S.

WASHINGTON, D.C, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Over the past decade, the U.S. automotive industry has demonstrated its ability to meet world leading fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards, build great cars that save consumers billions at the pump, and bring back American jobs and manufacturing at the same time. With successful clean vehicle standards currently under review—and the five-year anniversary of the finalization of the standards coming up on October 15—the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation today released an interactive map that allows the public to explore the reach of the clean economy spurred by fuel-efficient and clean vehicle innovation and investment in America. 

The interactive map highlights advanced vehicle, components and materials manufacturing facilities, and jobs across the U.S. and provides a local-level view of innovation across the industry that is not only enhancing energy security but supporting renewed competitiveness and profitability.

“At a time when the nation is focused on how to create and sustain manufacturing jobs, this map helps illustrate how today’s fuel economy and clean vehicle standards are working,” said Kim Glas, president of the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation. “These common-sense standards have helped bring back hundreds of thousands of jobs and anchor a broader manufacturing recovery, while reducing pollution at the same time.”

“To keep this momentum going we need to continue to lead on fuel economy through strong, long-term standards,” Glas added.

“Today’s map provides a picture of how innovation and investment to build advanced cleaner vehicle technologies is taking place nationwide–spurring new domestically made technology, upgrading and retooling factories, and supporting jobs all across America,” said Zoe Lipman, director of the BlueGreen Alliance’s Vehicles and Advanced Transportation Program. “Keeping fuel economy standards strong will be vital to sustaining this growth and ensuring that the U.S. remains a world leader in developing—and manufacturing—the next generation of fuel-efficient vehicles.”

“Our members develop and manufacture advanced engine and emission components—whether that’s technology for high tech super-efficient gasoline engines, state-of-the-art diesel engines emissions systems, or the electric motors and propulsion components that power electric drive.” said Jeff Breneman, executive director of the Alliance for Vehicle Efficiency, an association of automotive suppliers. “We are committed to building cutting-edge automotive technology in America, and long-term standards that are both meaningful and achievable provide the certainty for us to invest in the development of these technologies.”

The map is being released as a follow-up to a May 2017 report released by the BlueGreen Alliance and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Supplying Ingenuity II: U.S. Suppliers of Key Clean, Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Technologies, which found 288,000 workers at more than 1,200 factories and engineering facilities across 48 states building the technology that directly contributes to increasing fuel efficiency in today’s vehicles.
