Abstract

This report presents an economic profile of Maine’s environmental and energy technology sector. The analysis is based on primary data collected through a survey of 135 Maine businesses and organizations conducted during the summer of 2006. In addition, the study uses secondary industry statistics from U.S. Government sources and information from a purchased directory of environmental and energy technology companies. Results show that, in 2006, Maine’s environmental and energy technology sector directly generated an estimated $574.1 million in sales, supported 5,269 full- and part-time jobs, and provided $222.8 million in employee earnings. Counting multiplier effects, the environmental and energy technology sector contributed $882.7 million in sales to the Maine economy, and supported 9,650 jobs that provided $330.9 million in earnings.
