Indiana and seven other states are working together to grow the hydrogen industry’s consumer base, supply network, and available workforce.
The governors have signed the Midwest Hydrogen Coalition Memorandum of Understanding to increase hydrogen generation in the region. Increases in hydrogen production can have many positive effects on society, as outlined in the MOU. These include assisting existing firms in remaining competitive and inspiring the launch of entirely new ventures.
Other states include Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
Using a multi-state and multi-sector approach, the alliance nations will coordinate the construction of a regional hydrogen ecosystem over a number of steps. To further facilitate information sharing, the alliance mandates that each state construct a task group composed of senior government officials who will convene regularly.
