The Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition (CHFC), which represents a diverse group of energy companies, labor unions, utilities, NGOs and developers committed with the clean hydrogen advancement, announced this Monday it is launching a clean hydrogen strategy to promote hydrogen as a key pathway to achieve global decarbonization.
Firstly, the strategy involves a team of stakeholders united in its vision to support federal clean hydrogen policies to increase both hydrogen and the U.S. competitivity on that market, around the world.
Secondly, the strategy aligns with President Joe Biden’s plan to “Build Back Better”; as hydrogen has the potential to decarbonize all industrial sectors, specifically those in which electricity has a hard time; like transportation and manufacture.
Thirdly, Erik Mason, chairman of the CHFC, and Nikola Global Head of Energy Supply & Trading, said. “It’s critical that public and private sector leaders work together; that our country can reap the benefit from strategic investments that advance clean hydrogen technologies and a clean energy future.”
He also remarked. “The Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition is calling upon policymakers to ensure that clean hydrogen plays a significant role to advance a national energy and climate strategy.”

Moreover, some of the benefits of clean hydrogen are that it has a wide range of application in the industry; also, it can be produced from a variety of energy sources. The industry can use it as a replacement fuel, it resists long periods of store-time and, overall, is a highly versatile, clean energy resource.
Consequently, the CHFC is identifying specific actions to position the U.S. as a leader in the field; to scale up the nation’s supply chain for production; transport, storage, and use, as well as the technology development and infrastructure needs across multiple sectors.
On the other hand, David Carroll, President and CEO of the Gas Technology Institute, said. “We are enthusiastic that many sectors of the economy are joining together to advocate for clean hydrogen; this resource is a critical pathway to achieve the emission reduction goals we have set for the businesses and groups we lead.”
While, Alan Armstrong, President and CEO of The Williams Companies, remarked. “Our organizations, as well as several other U.S. businesses, have identified clean hydrogen as essential to meeting our targets; we are eager to work with President Biden, his administration and Congress to foster clean hydrogen’s growth throughout our economy.”
Finally, Richard Voorberg, President, Siemens Energy, Inc.; Sean McGarvey, President, North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU), are among the leaders united by the CHFC and its strategy.
