Change & Challenge for Silicon Valleys Economic Future Presented to work2future - Board of Directors March 2008
Introduction Examine the key issues that will shape economic and workforce development in the region for the next 10 years Identify the key economic drivers that will shape the regions economic and workforce development Develop regional indices to compare San Jose (MSA) with comparable high technology regions by each of the economic drivers identified, and Identify the regions strengths and weaknesses as they relate to the economic drivers 4
Economic Drivers 5 I. The integration of the international economy within the regional marketplace, II. The growth and evolution of high technology clusters, and III.The re-birth of advanced manufacturing in Silicon Valley.
Integration of the International Economy Results of the regional globalization index show that of the 379 US metro areas that were evaluated, San Jose ranked 10th nationally 6
Evolution of Technology Clusters 7 Biotechnology and the life sciences – The most established of the new wave of industry clusters with over 10,000 currently employed in this industry within Santa Clara County Clean technology – is the market driven response to use innovative technology to produce cleaner goods and services (renewable energy, transportation, water...) Nanotechnology - like information technology twenty years ago provides the promise of designing and building more complex products with greater efficiency
Rebirth of Advanced Manufacturing 8 San Jose had the highest regional concentration of advanced manu. employment in two of the three sectors examined
Conclusions I 9 I.Remain vigilant in developing and expanding the innovation economy – The region is currently leading the country in many measures of innovative activity but other regions are committed to catching up. II.Regional government must play a stronger supporting role in the next wave of economic growth – Unlike information technology which is relatively unregulated, healthcare and the energy industry are highly regulated and present a very different economic environment than what the region faced in the late 90s.
Conclusions II 10 III.Fostering the regions international connectivity will support emerging clusters and strengthen advanced manufacturing in the region – The three economic drivers identified in this study are highly connected and policies or events that positively or negatively influence one will likely have a domino effect on the others IV.The development of production and manufacturing opportunities should be a key metric in evaluating economic development success.
Questions to Consider The key questions generated from the study Will the regions connectivity to the international economy, insulate it from the domestic economic downturn? Will the emerging industry clusters become the dominant employers in the region and if so when? Will the next wave of advanced manufacturing in the region create a sizeable number of middle- income jobs that have been on the decline in the region? 11

Clean Technology Renewable Energy Green Industry/Technology Lets Define
Clean Technology Cleantech is a term used to describe knowledge- based products or services that improve operational performance, productivity, or efficiency while reducing costs, inputs, energy consumption, waste, or pollution. Its origin is the increased consumer, regulatory and industry interest in clean forms of energy generationspecifically, perhaps, the rise in awareness of global warming and the impact on the natural environment from the burning of fossil fuels.
By definition, renewable energy is "clean" - producing few or no hazardous emissions or pollutants, and having minimal impact on fragile ecosystems. There are five main types of renewable energy: hydro, biomass, geothermal, solar and wind. Renewable Energy
Green Technology includes products and processes that conserve the natural environment and resources and minimize the negative effect of human activity on the environment. The field of green technology is continuously evolving and diverse. Green Technology
Job Market Clean/Green technology impacts many sectors of the economy and will result in both the creation and redesign of a broad range of jobs. A study conducted by Cleantech Network, a venture capital firm for green business, predicts that a half million new jobs in ecologically responsible trades will emerge in the next three years alone. The City of San Joses Green Vision goal is to create 25,000 new jobs by 2014.
Workforce Demand in Energy & Technology The Solar industry is one of the largest component in Energy Generation. A recent assessment of Solars current and Silicon Valley future workforce in Silicon Valley revealed- Currently 1,500 workers in Silicon Valley in Solar Industry Industry growth is currently at about 35 percent per year By 2017, Silicon Valley expect another 10,000 to 20,000 solar workers – 60% manufacturing & installation, 20% sales & marketing, and 20 percent in engineering Source: Solartech White Paper, June 2007
Bay Region Solar Industry Workforce Study Preview of Key Findings February 13, 2008 Solar Industry –Bay Area There are approximately 800 firms in California, of which 32% are located in the Bay Area. The majority of Bay Area solar firms (82%) are smallless than 25 employees.
Job Boom Solar firms in the Bay Area are expecting to increase employment by up to 17% in the next year resulting in about 1,200 new jobs. Bay Region Solar Industry Workforce Study Preview of Key Findings February 13, 2008
Bioscience Industry Santa Clara County Over 600 NAICS Identified Business in Santa Clara County
Bioscience Employment Over 21,000 Employees
Nanotechnology Nanotechnology plays a critical role as an enabling platform technology, for emerging high growth sectors including Nano-Bio and Clean Technologies. Nanotechnology has immense potential to generate economic growth in California because of its profound impact on a wide spectrum of industries. In the United States, the National Science Foundation forecasts up to 2 million jobs will be created in the next 15 years utilizing nanotechnology. It is estimated that approximately 200,000 jobs in nanotechnology will be created in the State of California by Lloyd L. Tran President, International Association of Nanotechnology Director, California Institute of Nanotechnology
