Gathering pace: Infrastructure opportunities in the hydrogen economy

Ambitious decarbonization targets are rapidly growing in focus across the globe. With the world hunting for a solution, hydrogen is increasingly being looked to as an enabler of the deep decarbonization needed to move the dial. But with the huge scale of investment required for a hydrogen economy over the coming decades, what is needed to make it a reality? And how do we get there?


Partnership and infrastructure in the United States: A review of the history of public-private infrastructure investments in the United States

History can be a powerful tool for innovation and improving analysis in times of change. One can argue that U.S. infrastructure is currently working through such a period. As hundreds of billions of dollars of private capital is allocated to infrastructure, and the country is on the cusp of passing the first major federal infrastructure legislation in decades, it is a fitting time to look back to analyze how the private and public sectors have worked together best.


Social infrastructure investment: The role of institutional investors

There’s a hole in the world tonight: Remembering Larry Hull

I first met Larry Hull 37 years ago, at a SACRS conference in Bakersfield, California. I was only 33 at the time and working as a regional vice president for Equitec Institutional Realty Advisers, an emerging (at the time) real estate investment management concern.

A conversation with Ron Fleming: with Drew Campbell

Arizona has seen its population increase and its water use decrease over the past several decades — how was this accomplished? Is there more room for this trend to continue? Contrary to common knowledge, Arizona has in fact been growing its population and economy for years and years, while total statewide water use has been declining. Water use in Arizona was increasing until 1980 when the pivotal Groundwater Management Act (GMA) was passed. The GMA created the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) and provided a complex framework of laws, rules, management plans, and policies that has ensured smart water management practices are undertook by all sectors.
