BlueGreen Alliance Responds to Request for Information on Regional Clean Hubs Implementation Strategy
Our coalition is committed to supporting the Administration in our shared goal of transforming our economy in a way that reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, improves health and environmental outcomes in communities harmed by environmental injustice, and creates and maintains good, family-supporting jobs across the United States. Implemented carefully, we believe hydrogen can play a critical role in achieving these goals and establishing a stronger, cleaner, and more equitable economy.
Hydrogen is an interesting opportunity to put people to work in the clean economy using the careers and skill-sets that they have today. Hydrogen is currently produced for a number of uses in the U.S., and reducing emissions from that process will allow workers to retain jobs while we make progress on climate goals. The industry also requires existing skill-sets in construction and operations and maintenance and hydrogen as a fuel can substitute for fossil fuels for some industrial processes.
