Where are the clean energy jobs? A new resource launched by the Ecotech Institute - a college focused entirely on preparing the U.S. workforce for careers in renewable energy and sustainability - aggregates all of the available clean energy jobs in the U.S.

According to the new resource, called the Clean Jobs Index, there were more than 3 million clean energy jobs available across the U.S. in 2012. The index breaks down clean energy jobs by state, with links to local job listings. In addition to providing objective information on jobs, the index also looks at a variety of sustainability factors that affect citizens' lifestyles, including alternative fueling stations, LEED projects, total energy consumption, energy efficiency, green pricing, net metering and state incentives.

Highlights from the Clean Jobs Index include the following (data updated Jan. 15, 2013):
