ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz is in New Mexico for a forum on energy challenges in the Southwest.

Moniz on Tuesday joined researchers, leaders from some of the nation’s government laboratories and industry representatives for the meeting at the University of New Mexico.

A panel discussion on hydrogen technology was on the agenda along with making solar photovoltaics more efficient and less expensive to manufacture.

Moniz and the others discussed the importance of innovation for the research and development of energy technologies to ensure the nation is competitive in the global marketplace.

According to solar experts, New Mexico already is on track to install more than 1,400 megawatts of capacity over the next five years. That’s more than five times the amount of solar installed in the last five years.
