  17. 17. Energy Improvements “Clean energy investment broke new records in 2015 and is now seeing twice as much global funding as fossil fuels. One reason is that renewable energy is becoming ever cheaper to produce. Recent solar and wind auctions in Mexico and Morocco ended with winning bids from companies that promised to produce electricity at the cheapest rate, from any source, anywhere in the world” -Michael Liebreich, chairman of the advisory board for Bloomberg New Energy Finance First Solar now produces solar panels for $.40, undercutting leading Chinese manufacturer in price with new production technology #LOGISYNERGY
  18. 18. Energy Improvements - Proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline – bringing new gas supply to ENC that will lower prices and increase reliability - Conversion of Duke power plant (Wayne Co) from coal to natural gas will decrease pollution and solidify regional air quality as attainment - Sale of NC Electric Municipal Power Agency generation to Duke Energy/Progress – bringing stability and lower power costs - Solar energy farms spreading across ENC – over 90 solar farms have been installed in eastern NC bring over $1.2 billion of investment into the region - The Amazon Wind Farm US East, operated by Iberdrola Renewables at Desert Wind, is the first utility-scale wind farm in North Carolina and one of the first in the southeastern US #LOGISYNERGY

  23. 23. FUTURE INTERSTATE DESIGNATIONS
  24. 24. Interstate Highway Designations Will Stimulate Growth From Raleigh Beltline to Norfolk • Future interstate would follow the I-495 corridor to I-95 at Rocky Mount, following the US 64 freeway then traveling US 17 - connecting to the cities of Chesapeake & Norfolk, VA in the Hampton Roads region. I-495 / US 70 / US64 Improving access from Triangle to Crystal Coast • Bypassing Clayton, Goldsboro, Kinston, Havelock, and Beaufort. • This corridor is heavily used for moving freight, and is just a few miles south of the Global TransPark.

  46. 46. ü Attributes: The education level of the workforce, attainment level and skill levels present in a community. ü Talent: Can skills gap be filled and are there resources and tools in the prospect community to fill those gaps? ü Pipeline: Can enough pipeline of skilled talent be developed to meet expected turnover and future growth? ü Community: Where will a company’s employees live and where will they work? How they will get there? Shopping opportunities, quality schools and availability of executive housing do matter.
