Sens. Coons, Cornyn unveil infrastructure package to support hydrogen technologies for emissions reduction

Today, U.S. Senators Chris Coons (D-Del.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) introduced their bipartisan Hydrogen Infrastructure Initiative, a package of three bills to support the adoption of hydrogen in energy intensive sectors. The bills are also cosponsored by Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), and Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.).

Hydrogen is a high-energy fuel source that does not emit greenhouse gases at the point of use, properties that allow it to be used in intense and long duration applications. These traits make it an attractive fuel source, especially for hard-to-abate sectors like shipping and industry.

The package is endorsed by Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) Action, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), Chemours, Linde, Lanzatech, Clean Air Task Force, RMI, Third Way, Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition, ClearPath, Air Liquide, Industrial Innovation Initiative (I3), and Cummins.
