Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center

The Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis established the Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center (CEMAC) to provide objective insights and up-to-date data on global clean energy manufacturing.

JISEA's Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center examines clean energy industry trends; cost, price, and performance trends; market and policy drivers; and future outlook. Shown here: welding and sparks in a manufacturing process.

CEMAC harnesses the world-class talent of the DOE national laboratory network in partnership with industry, academia, and research collaborators to conduct global clean energy manufacturing analysis across energy sectors.

CEMAC provides objective analysis and up-to-date data on global clean energy manufacturing. Policymakers and industry leaders seek CEMAC insights to inform choices to promote economic growth and the transition to a clean energy economy.


In collaboration with DOE's leadership, CEMAC seeks to:

  • Deliver world class analysis, benchmarking, and insights of supply chains and manufacturing for clean energy technologies that can be leveraged by decision makers to inform investment strategies, policy, and other decisions to promote economic growth and competitiveness in the transition to a clean energy economy.

  • Develop distinctive talent, innovative models and tools, and unique and high-impact publications.


CEMAC's analysis expertise includes:

  • Clean energy innovation analysis
    Understanding the innovation dynamics of clean energy technologies can help inform research investment decisions and innovation and technology transfer policy.

  • Competitive advantage market analysis
    Identifying the key global market drivers and opportunities within various markets.

  • Jobs analysis
    Studying investments in clean energy technology deployment can result in positive returns on investment and shed light on related job creation and economic output at the national, state, and community levels.

  • Cost analysis
    Examining the regional manufacturing points and access to capital as a critical component for innovation.

  • Supply constraints analysis
    Understanding rare material constraints and how they could limit the scale of rare material-based photovoltaic PV technology deployment and may influence manufacturing strategy.

  • Workforce development analysis
    Examining specific workforce skills, training, and experience and establishing associated standards and requirements will continue to encourage large-scale deployment of wind and solar technologies.

Benchmarks of Global Clean Energy Manufacturing

CEMAC's analysis of the product supply chains can inform decisions related to manufacturing facilities for extracting and processing raw materials, making the array of required subcomponents, and assembling the final product. The Benchmarks report is the first of its kind to isolate and quantify the economic impacts of the clean energy manufacturing sectors. Download the reports and view findings.
