Brookings Mountain West at UNLV says that Nevada can be at the heart a transformation in how the country reduces its carbon footprint. By establishing federally funded innovation centers across the intermountain West, Brookings says the region can capitalize on its many world class assets. Two of the six proposed centers in the report are in Nevada, one in Reno that would focus on geothermal research and one in Southern Nevada which would focus on solar energy.

So how can Northern and Southern Nevada benefit from its existing resources and build out on its purported potential? We talk with Brookings Scholar, Mark Muro about the report and why Nevada would be a good place for energy innovation.
