Arizona State University, University of Arizona, and Northern Arizona have formed a coalition with four major energy utilities - Arizona, Public Service, Salt River Project, Tucson Electric Power, and Southwest Gas - that will play an important leadership role in achieving a carbon neutral economy (net zero) in Arizona. The coalition is supporting a new ASU-based Center: The Center for an Arizona Carbon-Neutral Economy, , which is engaging with all stakeholders in the design, demonstration, assessment, and deployment of viable options along the energy transition journey, on a path to carbon-neutrality, implementable in the Arizona context, with a strong focus on the role of hydrogen for difficult to abate applications. Learn about this coalition and the collaborative efforts with the convening power of institutions of higher education to establish a clean hydrogen economy.
