Individual company presentation

Serving as an extension of the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), the state's Europe Office, based in Munich, Germany, assists and supports prospective and existing European companies wishing to establish or expand business operations in the United States, while also helping Georgia-based companies export their products around the world. The State of Georgia Europe Office was founded in 1973.

You may be surprised to learn that Georgia is a “Top 10” solar installations state with enough installed solar capacity to power 310,257 homes. In fact, the largest operational solar PV plant in the Southeastern United States is located in Twiggs County, Georgia. The growth in our renewable industry portfolio is paying off for our businesses and workforce. With a 30% increase in jobs over the previous year, Georgia was ranked No. 1 in solar jobs growth in the Solar Jobs Census 2019, published by the Solar Foundation. Additionally, Georgia came in sixth place in total solar manufacturing employment.

Jobs in clean energy are the jobs of the future, and in addition to solar manufacturing, this includes solar project development and installation. We are focused on recruiting the technologies not just of today, but for tomorrow – and our University System of Georgia researchers are leading this cutting-edge move and supplying us with the workforce to do it.

Commissioner Pat Wilson was interviewed about Georgia’s approach during Clean Energy Week 2020. Watch what he had to say in the video below.

Solar Power and Grid Modernization - How Georgia Delivers Clean and Reliable Energy

Jul/22/2021 - 04:30 pm

State of Georgia online via Webex

Expert Panel by State of Georgia | Event Language: English Georgia's clean energy future is bright! As a Top-10 US-state for solar, Georgia has enough installed solar PV capacity to power over 322,000 homes and nearly 1GW of new solar capacity is planned to be added until the end of 2021. During this panel discussion you will hear how our electric power providers in Georgia supply low-cost, reliable, and environmentally friendly energy for the state's businesses and residents. The three major electricity suppliers in the state: Electric Cities of Georgia (ECG), Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (EMC), and Georgia Power will talk about their approach to support the growth of solar and clean energy as well as grid modernization in order to be well prepared to keep pace with Georgia's robust population growth and thriving economy. Learn how the Georgia Public Service Commission has supported the remarkable growth of solar energy in Georgia and its strong track record of supporting and approving environmentally conscious capital investments.

Lecture

100% New Renewables: How Georgia (USA) Landed Facebook's Datacenter

Jul/21/2021 - 06:00 pm

State of Georgia online via Webex

Case Study by State of Georgia | Event Language: English In today's world, innovative and sustainable energy solutions are more pertinent than ever. Georgia is committed to supporting companies reach their clean energy goals. When Facebook required 100% new renewables, during their nationwide site selection process, to power this state-of-the-art facility Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) found a way to meet this requirement, securing this competitive project for the state. But the story does not end there. The panels used to power the data center were manufactured at the largest single solar panel manufacturing facility in the Western Hemisphere, Q CELLS' plant in Dalton, Georgia, and installed in Early County in South Georgia. In this case, we see renewable energy fostering jobs and investment in non-Metro counties in three regions of the state: Directly through manufacturing, installation and maintenance and indirectly through jobs and investment coming from a forward-thinking company with ambitious sustainability goals.
