SACRAMENTO - Governor Gavin Newsom has directed the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) to develop California's Hydrogen Market Development Strategy, employing an all-of-government approach to building up California's clean, renewable hydrogen market. It will closely resemble the Zero-Emission Vehicle Market Development Strategy to help California collectively move forward and deliver zero-emission benefits to all Californians.
"California is all in on clean, renewable hydrogen – an essential aspect of how we'll power our future and cut pollution," said Governor Newsom. "This strategy will lay out the pathway for building a robust hydrogen market to help us fully embrace this source of clean energy."
WHY IT'S NEEDED:
WHAT IT WILL DO:
HOW WE GOT HERE: This initiative builds on the Governor's executive order to create an Infrastructure Strike Team to streamline projects throughout the state. The Hydrogen Strategy will be one outcome of the Infrastructure Strike Team's hydrogen, clean energy, transportation, and zero-emission vehicle workgroups. California's application for this federal funding was led and submitted by California's Alliance for Renewable Clean Hydrogen Energy Systems (ARCHES), a public private-partnership organized to create an economically sustainable, multi-sector, renewable hydrogen ecosystem that directly benefits California's communities.
