Michigan Governor Ms Gretchen Whitmer has announced the Midwestern Hydrogen Coalition, a bipartisan partnership between Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Indiana, to accelerate the development of a robust clean hydrogen economy in the Midwest. The coalition will provide a regional framework for establishing a strong clean hydrogen market that will create good-paying jobs, promote zero-carbon energy, and improve public health. Clean hydrogen can be a key component of decarbonizing the transportation, agriculture, and industrial sectors. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law appropriated USD 8 billion for the US Department of Energy to fund a set of Clean Hydrogen Hubs, which are networks of clean hydrogen producers, potential clean hydrogen consumers, and connective infrastructure located in proximity.Multiple midwestern industrial and university-led groups are expected to compete for DOE funding for hydrogen projects. The Midwest Hydrogen Coalition will work with them to make their projects more competitive through collaboration on policy development, permitting and asset planning.
