U.S. National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap
The U.S. National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap explores opportunities for clean hydrogen to contribute to national decarbonization goals across multiple sectors of the economy. It provides a snapshot of hydrogen production, transport, storage, and use in the United States today and presents a strategic framework for achieving large-scale production and use of clean hydrogen, examining scenarios for 2030, 2040, and 2050.
The Strategy and Roadmap also identifies needs for collaboration among federal government agencies, industry, academia, national laboratories, state, local, and Tribal communities, environmental and justice communities, labor unions, and numerous stakeholder groups to accelerate progress and market liftoff. This roadmap establishes concrete targets, market-driven metrics, and tangible actions to measure success across sectors. To help execute on the national hydrogen strategy, the Biden-Harris Administration launched the Hydrogen Interagency Task Force to further advance a whole-of-government approach to clean hydrogen.
The Strategy and Roadmap responds to legislative language set forth in section 40314 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Public Law 117-58), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). This document was posted for in draft form for public comment in September 2022, and the final version of the report was informed by stakeholder feedback, further analysis on market liftoff, as well as engagement across several federal agencies and the White House Climate Policy Office. There will also be future opportunities for stakeholder feedback, as the report will be updated at least every three years as required by the BIL.
