Through this MoU, Charbone has joined a consortium with the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, as well as more than 50 hydrogen ecosystem partners, for the development of a proposal to become one of at least four regional clean hydrogen hubs.

Consortium partners have committed to collaborate on the development of proposals to advance clean hydrogen projects that align with each state’s climate and clean energy goals.

These goals include Connecticut’s Global Warming Solutions Act goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Global Warming Solutions Act of 2008, as amended, requiring net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and New Jersey’s Global Warming Response Act goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050.

Dave Gagnon, Chairman and CEO of Charbone, said, “We are honoured to join the NYSERDA consortium with the governments of the states of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Connecticut, as well as many great companies and leaders in the development of a proposal for a Clean Hydrogen Hub in the US Northeast.

“Charbone will continue to develop small-scale regional hubs throughout Canada and USA.”

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?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
