WASHINGTON – Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly announced over $4.6 million were awarded for clean energy and low-carbon manufacturing research projects in Arizona. These awards will invest in research projects led by Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, and University of Arizona.
“Arizona’s growth depends on continued clean air and a strong water supply. Today’s grant awards will fuel research and innovation to address our biggest challenges and improve climate change, bolster clean energy technologies, and support low-carbon manufacturing,” said Sinema.
“Today’s investments will boost research into renewable energy solutions and grow Arizona’s position as a leader in innovation. I’ll continue working with Republicans and Democrats on solutions that strengthen American energy independence, lower costs, and create more great paying Arizona jobs,” said Kelly who serves on the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
These research projects were chosen by competitive peer review to scientific institutions to identify solutions to the climate crisis, clean energy technologies, low-carbon manufacturing, and other national priorities.
