This report assesses economic progress and opportunities for growth in three sectors of the Appalachian economy that are driven by energy: the energy sector, the petrochemical sector which uses energy as its primary feedstock, and the manufacturing sector, which can use low-cost energy and petrochemical sector products as manufacturing inputs. Further, it examines the supporting public and private infrastructure required to accelerate economic growth in these sectors. Importantly, it documents the role of human capital in Appalachia and how best to develop a twenty-first century workforce.
