Broad National Coalition Launches Make It In America Campaign To Restore Millions of
The Apollo Alliance today launched a broad-based campaign to restore millions of American
jobs with the release of a comprehensive roadmap for rebuilding U.S. manufacturing capacity to
meet the clean energy needs of the future. The Apollo Green Manufacturing Action Plan
(GreenMAP) lays out aggressive steps to scale up production of American-made clean energy
systems and components while making U.S. factories more energy efficient. Over the next
several weeks, Apollo's national coalition of business, labor, environmental and community
leaders will lead a multi-state advertising and advocacy campaign calling for federal investments
to enable domestic manufacturers to meet the nation's demand for clean energy solutions.
"We can't let the next generation of energy jobs be in oil fields on the other side of the world.
Our energy security and economic revitalization depend on creating and keeping good jobs in the
U.S.," said Apollo Alliance Chairman Phil Angelides. "The Apollo Green Manufacturing Plan
will put millions of Americans back to work and restore America's manufacturing leadership."
Developed in collaboration with industry, labor, environmental groups, and academic experts the
Apollo Green Manufacturing Plan calls for:
1. Direct federal funding for clean energy manufacturers to retool
facilities and retrain workers to develop, produce and commercialize
clean energy technologies.
2. Tying federal support to manufacturers' ability to meet labor and "Made
in America" content standards.
3. Federal support to streamline the clean energy components supply chain
to make American producers more competitive.
4. Increased federal Green Jobs Act funding to enable the American
workforce to meet the demands of a clean energy economy.
5. Creation of a Presidential Task Force on Clean Energy Manufacturing to
coordinate the federal government's efforts and
