Pittsburgh is in an renaissance, leading nuclear power and green building technologies. (And then the downtown greenscape.)

Recently, dominance in nuclear power has created an employment boom: the 15,000-person has added 5,000 new hires in the past years and moved to an Pittsburgh campus. AP1000 nuclear power plant is emerging as the technology of choice, with construction underway on 14 U.S. plants, and interest from 30 other countries. Innovating Energy Systems Siemens leads in smart grids that get electricity across the globe. The 8,700 wind turbines generate a major share of the wind power.
