FY2020 Study of DOE’s Economic Impact on the State of Tennessee

This webpage contains resources for those who are providing data for this study.

The East Tennessee Economic Council is once again producing an economic study that details the impact of the Department of Energy on our region and throughout the state. These reports are used to provide key information to our legislative delegation, community leaders, economic developers, federal contractors, and others.
