Description (excerpt):

Hydrogen is an energy carrier, fuel, and chemical feedstock that can enable decarbonization across multiple sectors of the US economy. The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) H2Hubs program is set to support the growth of clean hydrogen over the coming decades, jumpstarting clean hydrogen projects at regional hubs across the country. Hydrogen production must quickly scale beyond these initial hubs to reach the DOE’s targets of 10 million metric tons of clean hydrogen by 2030, 20 million metric tons by 2040, and 50 million metric tons by 2050.

This report examines regional opportunities for clean hydrogen hubs and considers the immense scale of new hydrogen production, carbon capture retrofits, and electrolysis capacity needed to meet national climate goals. This information can help build a better understanding of the key criteria for impactful hydrogen hubs, allowing for the best potential in driving decarbonization.
