Additional Resources and Updates Coming Soon!
In case you missed it, last Friday, leaders from the White House, DOE, and other federal agencies discussed plans for implementing the U.S. National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap. During the webinar, Deputy National Climate Advisor Mary Frances Repko announced the launch of the groundbreaking Hydrogen Interagency Task Force (HIT), a collaboration among U.S. federal agencies to ensure a whole-of-government approach to advancing the production and use of clean hydrogen. The HIT will leverage the strengths and capabilities of the entire U.S. government to develop technologies, implement policies, and overcome remaining barriers to the clean hydrogen economy.
More than 1,300 people attended, representing 36 countries and all 50 states! To follow up on this exciting event, DOE's Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office (HFTO) will:
- Answer your questions: Attendees submitted a wide range of questions—with topics spanning R&D challenges and commercialization to community engagement and environmental justice. While there was only enough time to address a few of these in the webinar, many more will be addressed in two resources: "Common Concerns" and "FAQs" about hydrogen, which will be released soon.
- Continue to focus on environmental justice: HFTO recognizes that environmental justice issues and community concerns about hydrogen can't be addressed in one short webinar, so stay tuned for more events and community outreach on these important topics.
- Provide updates to our stakeholders: As HIT evolves and engages in expanded activities, HFTO will provide updated information via hydrogen.gov.
