Back in the 1980s, GM engineered the first-ever electric car in Kokomo, Indiana. Twenty years later, we’re still leading the way – Indiana advanced manufacturers are putting plug-in electric cars on our highways, producing the turbines that turn wind into electricity and the products that make our homes more energy-efficient. And they're doing it with a greater environmental conscience, using advanced technologies to cut pollution in the air and trash in landfills.
We're on the leading edge of the global green revolution: Industries like electric vehicles, solar and wind power, and biofuels will grow 300% over the next decade. In Indiana, green jobs have grown nearly 20% over the last 10 years and show no sign of slowing down – jobs like design technicians and advanced manufacturing specialists who are helping create and produce the latest green products.
Indianapolis-based EnerDel is the only U.S. manufacturer of advanced batteries for high-tech electric vehicles.
