This week, Tampa Electric invested $5 million in USF’s College of Engineering to reach net-zero carbon emissions.
The $5 million donation, derived from shareholder funds, will create an endowed fund to support the Clean Energy Research Center’s research and development of energy technologies, which Tampa Electric plans to utilize to achieve carbon reductions and improve the environment.
“This partnership is a key pillar in our vision to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050,” said Archie Collins, Tampa Electric CEO. “We feel a responsibility to help fund and spur that innovation, and what better partner than the talented team at USF.”
