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.
