Cleantech creation

Achieving net-zero goals will require stepping up climate technology innovations. The United States can capture value and improve energy security by, for instance, establishing climate tech hubs where natural resources and industrial centers exist. Senior partner Laura Corb and colleagues note that parts of Texas, with established gas infrastructure and a wealth of renewables, could support hydrogen supplies to industries along the coast and could produce sustainable fuel for export and transportation.

Integrated cluster strategies can significantly boost competitiveness from a given technology, due to technology interdependence.
