Home to the University of California Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a highly educated and entrepreneurial workforce, and a commitment to regional cooperation on economic development, the East Bay Green Corridor is poised to lead California in the emerging clean technology economy.
The Green Corridor was established to build upon the region’s assets and create a thriving epicenter of green technology innovation, commercialization and local economic development in a manner that creates high quality jobs and addresses environmental and social concerns. While the East Bay is home to an array of related technology development programs, from research to tech transfer and investment, there is no organization that systematically integrates them to generate measurable regional outcomes. The Green Corridor proposes to fill that gap through a targeted, strategic approach through its innovation hub
The East Bay Green Corridor was co-founded in late 2007 by Director Steven Chu of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Chancellor Birgeneau of UC Berkeley; and Mayor Bates of Berkeley, Mayor Dellums of Oakland, Mayor McLaughlin of Richmond and Mayor Davis of Emeryville. In June 2009, the Corridor was expanded to include the cities of Alameda, San Leandro, El Cerrito, and Albany, the California State University East Bay, and the Peralta Community College District, totaling 8 East Bay cities and 4 widely acclaimed academic research institutions.
