Renewable Energy Industry Domestic Manufacturing By State - Ohio. The REPP State Report intends to provide an explanation of how manufacturing potential is calculated and offers detailed analysis showing for Ohio, the potential for each of the 43 industrial codes (NACIS Codes) that comprise the major component parts for the major renewable energy technologies. It is hoped that the Report will spur interest at the local level to actually identify the specific firms that could benefit from a national program and begin the discussion as to how best to tie reinvigorated domestic manufacturing activity into a national program to develop renewable energy.
