By participating in the consortium, the company is aiming to advance green hydrogen as a low-carbon, scalable fuel source for the heavy transportation sectors in Los Angeles and the Phoenix along the I-10 corridor.
The project will also utilise hydrogen produced from existing and future renewable natural gas facilities.
Several main players in the hydrogen ecosystem are also involved within this project including the likes of the Bank of America, Citi, Cummins, Linde, Walmart and more.
With multiple pilot projects scheduled for across the US, it is hoped that this will contribute to scaling green hydrogen technologies and decarbonise various sectors within the US.
Lisa Frantzis, Partner at Guidehouse, said, “The development of the clean hydrogen market is an area of need that our consortium fully understands.
“Through these pilot programs, we hope to decarbonise some of our country’s most challenging industries and collaborate with top minds from global and regional organisations to drive clean energy measures in communities across the country and unlock hydrogen’s full potential.”
Mike Bakas, Executive Vice-President of Ameresco, said, “We’re excited to be included in Guidehouse’s continued work to highlight the importance of the market’s demand for a clean, scalable and dispatchable future fuel source such as clean hydrogen.
“I want to congratulate our Alternative Fuels Team for their tireless effort to formulate a hydrogen fuels project concept that leverages our renewable natural gas projects.
“Through our deep technical team experience, we look forward to utilising our core competencies to accelerate the growth of hydrogen in the market for the benefit of our clients and the environment.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
