Company announces first-of-a-kind $3B renewable hydrogen project

A new partnership led by a veteran fossil fuel executive announced plans today to build what could be the country’s biggest hub for renewable hydrogen.

The Mississippi Clean Hydrogen Hub, as it’s known, would use newly constructed arrays of solar panels to generate electricity, which in turn would power electrolyzers that split hydrogen from water molecules. The zero-carbon hydrogen would be stored in underground salt caverns — also to be newly built — then piped or trucked away to serve as fuel for fuel-cell vehicles or be blended into natural gas systems.

The jungle of new clean hydrogen infrastructure envisioned by developers echoes the “hub” concept that federal lawmakers and Energy Department officials have said they want to build.
