The Center for an Arizona Carbon-Neutral Economy (AzCaNE) and over 40 organizations in the energy sector in Arizona, the Navajo Nation, and Nevada have teamed up to launch the Southwest Clean Hydrogen Innovation Network (SHINe).

SHINe submitted a concept paper to seek federal funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on Nov. 7. Once online, the hub will provide clean energy for the hard-to-abate transportation, industrial and electricity sectors in the region. The project also aims to create new development opportunities in the U.S. Desert Southwest.

Arizona, the Navajo Nation, and Nevada are the country’s sunniest regions, with a significant presence of available, undeveloped land and abundant clean energy resources. Arizona is also home to the nation’s largest nuclear power plant producing 100% carbon-free electricity. 

Over 40 member organizations, including clean energy companies, gas producers, nonprofits, and universities have joined SHINe.
