Arrowhead Center at New Mexico State University will receive $1 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to encourage the development and commercialization of new high-tech clean technologies in New Mexico, the DOE announced Friday.
The project, an expansion of the New Mexico Clean Energy Resilience and Growth, or NM CERG, Cluster at Arrowhead Center is in collaboration with the New Mexico Economic Development Department, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories.
The new funding builds on work to develop the initial NM CERG cluster and run a hybrid accelerator for New Mexico clean-tech businesses, EnergySprint + SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research). The accelerator is being funded through a $50,000 competition prize the DOE’s Energy Program for Innovation Clusters, or EPIC, awarded
