Today is the launch of the US Hydrogen Economy Roadmap and it is great to be a part of it. Milestones are set out in a 4 part plan and includes inclusion of targets into government procurement


12 Key elements are:

  • Employment and economic growth
  • Grid balancing and storage
  • Transport including Busses, HGV’s and rail
  • Residential and commercial fuel
  • Hydrogen is already used for example as already a feedstock for ammonia
  • Aviation fuel feedstock
  • Can help as a reducing gas metal and cement industries
  • Currently hydrogen is mostly used in refining process
  • Steam reforming to green trajectory
  • The US Pathway is technology agnostic report, so long as hydrogen production is sustainable
  • Long term storage is geographically well placed and often near to hydrogen for ammonia sites making it very amenable
  • 14 % of US energy requirement will be met if roadmap followed

Look at the companies that provided input to this report. They all have vested interests in promoting hydrogen. A guaranteed hydrogen biased roadmap.
