Energy and manufacturing industry executives, state officials and civic leaders have announced a new Indiana-based initiative focused on the cleantech sector.

The Energy Systems Network (ESN) is a partnership of private firms, research institutions and public agencies focused on bringing new energy technologies to market, leveraging Indiana's strong manufacturing sector, research and development capabilities, and heritage of engineering advanced energy systems. Private and institutional investors have already pledged nearly $1.5 million to support the ESN's activities over the next two years.

"Indiana is already leading the nation in its pursuit of clean energy, from wind farms and biofuels to clean coal technology, and we have companies working on nearly every component of hybrid and plug-in vehicles," says Gov. Mitch Daniels, R-Ind. "This initiative will play a pivotal role in matching Indiana's strengths to opportunities for more jobs and investment."

The ESN is an initiative of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, the regional economic development alliance that also sponsors successful efforts focused on the life sciences, manufacturing and logistics, and information technology.
