Thank you @SecGranholm for highlighting #hydrogen as a key tool to acheive decarbonization and #energysecurity.

Huge victory for H2 drivers! @JoshNewmanCA’s SB 1329, which will fund the building of more hydrogen fueling stations, passed the Asm Natural Resources cmte! We couldn't have done it without your support. Send your support letter for the final committee 👉

Natural gas infrastructure acts as an accelerator for the hydrogen economy due to the abundant supply of natural resources with the opportunity to convert gas molecules into hydrogen closest to where it’s needed.

Replacing fossil fuels in industrial processes is crucial to end our dependence on Russian energy supplies by 2030.

It would also strengthen our industrial competitiveness and support international technology leadership.

How do we plan to achieve it? ⬇️


Clean hydrogen offers solutions to energy storage and to decarbonizing high-emitting industries like manufacturing and heavy-duty transportation. Coordinated action from businesses and governments can secure a net-zero economy fueled by clean hydrogen.
