• Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

    From our colleagues at Hydrogen Forward: 

    Hydrogen Forward, a coalition of companies that spans the hydrogen value chain and work to ensure hydrogen is a key contributing solution to the energy transition, applauds the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 by the House of Representatives. The IRA was passed by the Senate on August 7 and now goes to the President to sign into law. In response to the IRA’s passage, Hydrogen Forward released the following statement:

  • Understanding Hydrogen Leakage Today and Tomorrow

    by Hydrogen Forward

    The effort to accelerate hydrogen deployment continues to build momentum this summer. Last month, the G7 Climate, Energy and Environment Ministers announced a new Hydrogen Action Pact to ramp up the production and use of low-carbon hydrogen for hard-to-abate sectors. Meanwhile, a new coalition of public and private stakeholders is advancing nuclear hydrogen production as a means to meet the required hydrogen volumes to achieve net-zero goals.

    However, the associated risks of hydrogen have also featured prominently in public discourse. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) released its “Climate consequences of hydrogen emissions” report, which examined leakage scenarios and created modeling on the potential benefits and consequences of hydrogen pipelines.
