New York Joins 6 States to Push for Northeast Regional Clean Energy Hub


New York has joined forces with six other states and has submitted a 3.62-billion dollar proposal for a Northeast Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub.

The proposal, sent to the US Department of Energy, asks for 1.25-billion dollars in federal hydrogen funding.

The entire 3.62 billion dollars in funding would create over one dozen projects across the states to advance hydrogen production and consumption in an effort to promote green energy and reduce greenhouse emissions.

Joining the Empire State are New Jersey, Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

“As a leader on climate action and founding partner of the Northeast Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub, New York State is leading the way in establishing a connected and sustainable hydrogen industry that will bring jobs and economic development to the region,” Governor Hochul said.”We are ready to work with our state partners and local communities to capitalize on federal funding and ensure this program benefits the entire region while becoming part of a connected hydrogen hub network nationwide and reaching our ambitious climate goals.”
