Sweeping energy sector changes are transforming the economy and economic development. Now more than ever, economic development has to adapt to a volatile energy market and policies that are emerging to shape that market, a process that holds both opportunities and challenges. While the specifics of the transition to a low-carbon economy are still being delib- erated both nationally and internationally, it appears likely that some type of cap and trade or carbon pricing will emerge. A price on carbon will hold significant implications for U.S indus- tries, regions and the nation as a whole. This document is intended to help economic developers and those in related fields think about how they can prepare and position their local economies to benefit from such a transition.
