South Carolina is about to take a major leap forward in global clean energy dominance.
Our state just received a historic grant from the Biden administration to build out the ambitious ‘Nexus for Advanced Resilient Energy (SC Nexus)’ tech hub.
“We’re going to invest in critical technologies like biotechnology, critical materials, quantum computing, advanced manufacturing,” said President Biden in a press release.
The University of South Carolina is ready and eager to work with our SC Nexus partners to secure South Carolina’s future as a global leader in the energy industry.https://t.co/na6h6xSUdG pic.twitter.com/j5hY9SJZVA

According to the US Department of Commerce:
“The SC Nexus for Advanced Resilient Energy (SC Nexus), led by the South Carolina Department of Commerce, aims to be a global leader in advanced energy by developing, testing, and deploying exportable electricity technologies. This Tech Hub will leverage the region’s dynamic and growing manufacturing base, superior research capabilities, and demonstrated record of public-private collaboration to innovate and commercialize emerging energy storage materials and manufacturing techniques, including a demonstrative microgrid implementation that integrates renewable energy and storage into the state’s electricity systems. In doing so, SC Nexus seeks to strengthen domestic manufacturing and national energy security while developing exportable, high-demand products and tools critical to the advanced energy supply chain.”
