Communities and cities that are part of H2 Twin Cities can mobilize collaboration, accelerate technology deployment, and address environmental justice and inclusion—particularly at the city and municipality level—through a variety of activities.
Example activities include:
- Stimulate regional clusters and getting to scale by developing reciprocal educational, municipal, business, professional, and technical exchanges and projects for communities, city officials, and relevant deployment-focused stakeholders to creatively learn, work, and solve problems together.
- Create and share business cases for different applications and end uses (e.g., bus fleets, hospitals, trucks, industrial use) through videos or online tours.
- Share best practices in streamlined permitting and community/end-user acceptance such as through tutorials and webinars.
