The Pennsylvania SBDC will work with Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) located in Region 8 (among other partners) to provide education about shale energy supply chain opportunities and the importance of considering the Energy, Environment & Economy (E3) framework when starting or growing businesses. The Pennsylvania SBDC will transfer knowledge to Region 8 states where there is also current and proposed shale activity. The project will be delivered in two phases. Phase I will include shale energy supply chain sustainability education through workshops using the E3 framework. Phase II will include conducting E3 assessments at two to three selected small to medium manufacturers in Region 8.
