Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas await a decision by the federal government to hand out $7 billion from last year’s bipartisan infrastructure law that could fund up to 10 regional clean hydrogen hubs.
The three states announced their agreement in March to create a bipartisan three-state partnership to create a regional hub for the development, production and use of clean hydrogen as fuel and manufacturing feedstock.
Other states have since created similar agreements with neighbors to pursue the billions in federal funding to set up the “hydrogen hubs.”
“The H2Hubs will be a central driver in helping communities across the country benefit from clean energy investments, good-paying jobs and improved energy security – all while supporting President Biden’s goal of a net-zero carbon economy by 2050,” the department said in a news release last month, calling the federal cash infusion one of the largest in the DOE’s history.
