Northeast Hydrogen Hub

Hydrogen Hub

Program Background 

In 2022, a Notice of Intent (NOI) from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations announced the availability of $8 billion worth of funding for the development of at least four regional clean hydrogen hubs to improve clean hydrogen production, processing, delivery, storage, and end use in the United States. 

In mid-November 2022, NYSERDA submitted a concept paper on behalf of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Maine, and 60+ partners to the Department of Energy to be considered and compete for $8 billion in hydrogen hub funding. The consortium of states and partners grew further after submission of the concept paper, and an application was submitted by NYSERDA on behalf of the group in April 2023.
