  • Integrate its sustainability goals for organic waste (ag, food, forestry, and wastewater)
  • Accelerate the development of practical, large-scale storage for renewable power
  • Facilitate the creation of a low-carbon hydrogen supply for a fuel cell future
  • Create economic development opportunities for disadvantaged regions of the state
