The Clean Economy Tracker (CET) provides real-time information on the clean energy and technology manufacturing industry in the United States. The CET covers manufacturing facilities in the following sectors: batteries, critical mineral production and processing, electric vehicles, heat pumps, hydrogen electrolyzers, transmission and grid materials, and zero-emissions electricity generation. This tool captures a variety of data points at the facility level, including investments and jobs in production. The dashboard also overlays geospatial data, including congressional district, energy community status, and other indicators to help users understand the social and political context of clean energy investments. The CET aggregates and continually updates this data in an accessible, easy-to-use dashboard to assist users in finding the information they need. Facilities are only tracked if they have been announced, are under construction and development, or currently in operation. Facilities that have remained closed prior to the start of data collection, Q3 2023, are not included.

Interact Directly

This tool is organized in three tabs: Manufacturing Overview, Manufacturing Analysis, and Demonstration Projects. Users can navigate between all views using the tabs at the top of the dashboard. The entire dashboard is interactive, and users are encouraged to click around to explore and understand the data better. Clicking on a specific part of a chart or graph will filter that section of the dashboard based on the selected technology or sector. For example, clicking on a circle on the “Manufacturing Sector” map will filter the graph and KPIs above to show the selected facilities. To undo the filter, click elsewhere on the dashboard or use the “Reset View” button at the top of the page. Some charts and maps have additional features that can be seen by hovering over the top right corner of the visual. The (?) icon provides additional information for understanding that specific chart or map. The (≡) icon allows users to view what filters have been applied to that specific chart or map. The upward and downward pointing icons allow users to drill up (aggregate the data) or drill down (refine the data), respectively.

Filter Data

The data can be filtered and sorted in many ways to help refine the dashboard for specific data inquiries. Located on the far-right side of the dashboard is a yellow filter pane to help users find a specific data point or subset of the data. Users can apply one or many filters at the same time by expanding the pane, setting the desired filter, and clicking “Apply filter”. Filters can be cleared individually using the small eraser icon at the top right corner of each filter or using the “Reset View” button to clear all filters.

Export Data

The user can export the data behind any charts or maps by clicking on the (⋯) icon at the top right of the data visual, clicking “Export data”, and then clicking the green “Export” button. Any filters on the visuals will apply to the background data as well, so users can export specifically filtered datasets.

The Manufacturing Overview tab provides a high-level summary of clean energy and technology manufacturing facilities. This includes a handful of top line metrics, a chart showing the growth of the industry over time, and an interactive map.

Both the bar chart and interactive map highlight different aspects of the impacts these facility announcements have on the clean economy. Selecting different components of each (i.e. clicking on one data bar or one manufacturing focus on the map), will filter the data displayed in the other visual as well. The corresponding views, which include Manufacturing Focus (default view), Congressional District, Energy Communities, Low-Income Communities, and Rural Communities, can be seen by clicking on the relevant button. The chart and map change together depending on which of the five focus areas are selected. Note that the sizes of the circles on the map correspond to the magnitude of total clean energy/tech investment announced at the facility. If the facility produces multiple products across more than one industry, then multiple circles will be shown for that facility in the Manufacturing Focus view. If a facility is listed, but has no job or investment numbers attached, or has those categories as “0,” that indicates that the data was not available in the announcement(s).

The Manufacturing Analysis tab provides more granular data and visualizations on investments and jobs, compared across different technologies, states, congressional districts, and parent companies. Simply click on the desired button and the charts below will display data based on the user’s selection. Hovering over different elements in visuals (e.g., a particular state or section of a bar chart) will display more detailed information in the tooltip. The tooltip is the pop-out window that appears when hovering over the different elements of contextual information and detail to data points on a visual.

Demonstration facilities include non-manufacturing, commercial scale deployment projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations, established in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). These projects are tracked separately from the manufacturing facilities in the first and second tabs. The Demonstration Projects tab showcases projects deploying emerging technologies in the process of scaling up (i.e., large-scale hydrogen hubs, carbon capture and storage). The facilities receive funding from the DOE through grants, cooperative agreements, or other funding mechanisms. As information is released by DOE, details will be updated for the announced projects. 

In addition to individual project descriptions, this tab also provides information on total federal funding awarded or allocated, the number of projects funded, and the different types of funding programs being tracked. Funding awarded reflects announced funding given to a project at a singular point in time, while funding allocated reflects the total funding to be given toward a project that may be awarded in phases over time. Funding remaining includes funding in a specific funding program that has yet to announce recipients. Because many of the funding programs included on this tab are in the early stages, some still yet to announce recipients, this page may change frequently as more information is made available by the agencies distributing funding and companies operating the projects. For a full list of funding programs included, please see the “What are demonstration facilities?” section.

Frequently Asked Questions

The growth of the clean energy industry will bring about significant economic development in the United States, including in manufacturing. This effort is an attempt to track the economic impact of that growth.

Atlas Public Policy and Utah State University are partners in this project, including in data collection, processing, analysis, and dashboard development and maintenance.

Data will be updated weekly. New announcements and updates to previous announcements will be noted in the digests. Register for the mailing list on the homepage.

All data shown in the dashboard is publicly available in some form. In many cases, publicly available data may be limited, particularly as it relates to new investments and other information deemed confidential. Gaps will be filled as new data becomes available.
