The Arrowhead Center to Promote Prosperity and Public Welfare (PROSPER) of the New Mexico State University (NMSU) is conducting research analyzing the relationships between the fossil fuel energy sector and economic development issues in New Mexico. The project is a policy research and economic modeling initiative to enhance fossil fuel energy production and use in New Mexico in an environmentally progressive manner that contributes to the economic development of the state and creates a strong, vibrant economy that better serves the citizens of New Mexico. The project is engaging stakeholders in the research process and assessing (1) the impact of the fossil fuel industry on water resources in New Mexico, and (2) how the increasing worldwide demand for fossil fuels impacts energy production in New Mexico.
