Dive into this July-August issue of Trade & Industry Development and gain a whole new perspective on some of the most talked-about industries in the country. Change is in the air! And our authors address how it is affecting economic development. Alternative energy sources top the list. Find out from the most authoritative voices in the solar and wind energy industries how so many Americans and American businesses are embracing these sources of cleaner energy and maybe become inspired to adopt clean energy in your business. If you think it’s too expensive, you’ll learn in our Feature article on Deep Energy Retrofits that there are so many more benefits than simple energy efficiency and cost savings that you’ll be wondering why you didn’t do it sooner. If you’re still not convinced, check out the exclusive interviews in this issue’s Sites & Programs column where communities and businesses share their stories of initiatives to be ‘greener.’ 

Our coverage of industries experiencing tremendous change and transformation doesn’t stop there. This July-August issue features both the technology and retail industries, that not only chronicle the factors that are driving them in new directions, but what you need to know about how those changes affect site selection and economic development.
