3 Change & Challenge for Silicon Valley’s Economic Future
Presented to work2future - Board of Directors March 2008

4 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 region’s 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 region’s strengths and weaknesses as they relate to the economic drivers 4

5 Economic Drivers The integration of the international economy within the regional marketplace, The growth and evolution of high technology clusters, and III. The re-birth of advanced manufacturing in Silicon Valley. 5

6 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

7 Evolution of Technology Clusters
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 7

8 Rebirth of Advanced Manufacturing
San Jose had the highest regional concentration of advanced manu. employment in two of the three sectors examined 8

9 Conclusions 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. 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 90’s. 9

10 Conclusions II Fostering the region’s 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 The development of production and manufacturing opportunities should be a key metric in evaluating economic development success. 10

11 Questions to Consider The key questions generated from the study
Will the region’s 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

14 Green Industry/Technology
Lets Define Clean Technology Renewable Energy Green Industry/Technology

15 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 generation—specifically, perhaps, the rise in awareness of global warming and the impact on the natural environment from the burning of fossil fuels.

16 Renewable Energy 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.

17 Green Technology 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.  

18 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 Jose’s Green Vision goal is to create 25,000 new jobs by 2014.

20 Workforce Demand in Energy & Technology
The Solar industry is one of the largest component in Energy Generation. A recent assessment of Solar’s current and 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

21 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 small—less than 25 employees. Bay Region Solar Industry Workforce Study Preview of Key Findings February 13, 2008

22 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


24 Bioscience Industry Santa Clara County
Over 600 NAICS Identified Business in Santa Clara County

25 Bioscience Employment
Over 21,000 Employees

26 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 2020.” Lloyd L. Tran President, International Association of Nanotechnology Director, California Institute of Nanotechnology
