Hydrogen supported in the news $550bn US Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

August 2, 2021

US President Joe Biden and a bipartisan group has signed a new agreement that will see $550bn invested into the American infrastructure with hydrogen included.

$73bn of this figure will go to clean energy transmission, making it the single largest investment in American history.

Significantly, a part of the fund will also support demonstration projects and research hubs for next generation technologies like advance nuclear reactors, carbon capture and clean hydrogen.

The $73bn investment will also look to upgrade the US power infrastructure, including by constructing thousands of miles of new, resilient transmission lines to facilitate the expansion of renewable energy.

This could help with the production of green hydrogen across the US with renewable energy being a pivotal factor in producing zero carbon hydrogen.

The funds will also create a new grid deployment authority that will support research and development for advanced transmission and electricity distribution technologies, promoting smart grid technologies that deliver flexibility.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will also grow the economy, enhance competitiveness, create good jobs and make the economy more sustainable and resilient.
