The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) recently released a report showing that many opportunities exist for clean hydrogen’s growth, but government leadership would be critical in achieving decarbonization goals.

That includes tax credits and incentives, research, development and demonstration funding. It would also be important to reduce permitting, regulatory, and economic barriers to implement hydrogen projects – across all levels of government.

The report also noted that Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) would be vital for producing hydrogen from fossil fuels.

Earlier this month, the DOE Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management announced $28 million for research, development and front-end engineering design projects to advance clean hydrogen for power generation, transportation and industrial use.
