The members of Hydrogen Forward, a coalition of companies working to make hydrogen a key contributor to the clean energy transition, are encouraged by the US Department of Energy’s (DoE) Earthshots Initiative as well as the inclusion of funding for the development of hydrogen and regional hubs to support the growth of this important technology in the US federal infrastructure package.

However, as the United States embraces a bold climate agenda, we know this is just a start. We believe the US has a unique opportunity to prioritize climate policies and establish a clear strategy for hydrogen investment through mass-scale infrastructure, development, and deployment.
