Cal State LA is joining the Alliance for Renewable Clean Hydrogen Energy Systems, also known as ARCHES, along with the four other CSU campuses in the Los Angeles area that are part of the CSU5. ARCHES is a public-private partnership to create a sustainable statewide clean hydrogen hub in California, utilizing local renewable resources to produce hydrogen. The objective is to fully decarbonize the regional economy, while prioritizing environmental justice, equity, economic leadership, and workforce development. The CSU5—which includes CSU campuses in Dominguez Hills, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Northridge, and Pomona—seeks to create a long-term, strategic, and innovative approach to economic and community development that shapes a positive future for the greater Los Angeles region. Dr. David Blekhman, professor of technology and technical director for the Hydrogen Research and Fueling Facility at Cal State LA, is the CSU5 faculty lead for the ARCHES Network.
