Biden Administration Releases First-Ever National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap
The Strategy and Roadmap provides a snapshot of hydrogen production, transport, storage, and use in the United States today and a vision for how clean hydrogen will contribute to national decarbonization goals across multiple sectors in the future. It examines future demand scenarios—with strategic opportunities for the domestic production of 10 million metric tonnes (MMT) of clean hydrogen annually by 2030, 20 MMT annually by 2040, and 50 MMT annually by 2050. It also complements a historic $9.5 billion investment for clean hydrogen through the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, ongoing research and development efforts across the federal government, as well as strong policy incentives—including a new production tax credit for clean hydrogen—in the historic Inflation Reduction Act.
ASME has formed a Hydrogen for a Green Economy Steering Committee, along with the development of an ongoing Hydrogen Guidance Document to address the needs and concerns for hydrogen for the green economy.
