The Grundy Economic Development Council announced that the Midwest Alliance for Clean Hydrogen (MachH2), with its plan for a landmark investment in clean hydrogen production, has been selected as the Midwest Clean Hydrogen Hub.
MachH2 is a coalition of over 50 public and private sector partners, including universities, national labs, energy companies, and economic development organizations. The group’s plan for the Midwest Clean Hydrogen Hub includes the development of a network of clean hydrogen production and distribution facilities across Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
The project is expected to create thousands of jobs and generate billions of dollars in economic activity in the region. It is also expected to help the Midwest reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a clean energy economy.
Clean hydrogen is a versatile fuel that can be used to power a variety of applications, including vehicles, power plants, and industrial processes. It is also a carbon-free fuel, meaning that it does not produce greenhouse gas emissions when burned.
The development of the Midwest Clean Hydrogen Hub is a significant step forward for the region’s clean energy transition. It will help to create a domestic supply of clean hydrogen, which can be used to decarbonize a variety of sectors and create jobs.
The selection of the Midwest Alliance for Clean Hydrogen as the Midwest Clean Hydrogen Hub is a significant development for the region. The project has the potential to create jobs, boost the economy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create a domestic supply of clean hydrogen.
