WASHINGTON–The Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition (CHFC) welcomes the bipartisan cooperation demonstrated by Senators Young (R-IN) and Whitehouse (D-RI) on the introduction of the Hydrogen Utilization and Sustainability Act (Hy USA). Hy USA marks the growing recognition of the role that clean hydrogen must play in the energy transition.
“The CHFC is encouraged by the leadership of Senators Young and Whitehouse on Hy USA”, says Erik Mason, Global Head of Energy Trading for Nikola and CHFC Chair, “and we look forward to working with them to expand opportunities for the use of clean hydrogen throughout all sectors of our economy.”
The CHFC is pleased that Hy USA acknowledges an all of the above approach to decarbonizing and improving the reliability of the electric grid and will work to expand this approach throughout the economy.
The Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition also sent a letter to President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. today applauding the Administration’s inclusion of clean hydrogen projects and development support in the President’s American Jobs Plan.
“The CHFC is pleased to see the Plan’s robust support for research, development, and deployment for decarbonized hydrogen, as well as a proposal to invest in fifteen decarbonized hydrogen demonstration projects paired with a new production tax credit to bolster those projects”, says Brian Hlavinka, Director of Emerging Opportunities for the Williams Companies and CHFC Vice Chair. “The proposals in the American Jobs Plan will help catalyze clean hydrogen infrastructure, and the CHFC looks forward to working with the Biden administration and Congress in the design of a comprehensive suite of policies needed for hydrogen to be a critical element of the clean energy transition.”
