In The Region:

A new report by a new organization says 25,000 Ohio jobs were created during the recession in industries related to alternative energy. 

The group Advanced Energy Economy Ohio set up shop last September.

It’s the local chapter of a national organization trying to pull together, and lobby for, industries ranging from solar and wind, to smart grid technology designed to handle renewable energy sources, and even new forms of nuclear power.

Kimberly Gibson heads up the Ohio chapter.
