By knowing the strengths of our industrial sites and community assets, Alliant Energy and our economic development partners can better leverage those strengths to attract new industrial customers. Alliant Energy has retained Schneider Strategy Consultant to conduct a highly focused target industry analysis to match infrastructure, workforce, land, transportation and supply chain strengths to promote competitive advantages.
Based on analysis, we identified and began marketing to businesses in the following target industries:
- Animal feed and pet food.
- Controlled environment agriculture.
- Bakery industry.
- Specialty and functional beverages.
- Biorenewable chemicals.
We can now focus on specific industry segments compatible with the resource offerings and industry activity within our service area. This is a critical element of our strategic plan for economic development. This approach provides a more effective, efficient use of our resources.
