​​​​​​​For cooperatives that exploring technologies to mitigate their fossil fuel-fired power plants' environmental impact, one possible option may be the use of hydrogen as a generating fuel. As interest in the use of hydrogen for low- or zero-emission power generation grows, various groups have initiated research, development and demonstration projects – and the bipartisan infrastructure bill provides significant funding for regional hydrogen hubs where RD&D programs can be conducted. This Surveillance article examines what is involved in the production, transport, storage and use of hydrogen for utility power generation. It also discusses the benefits and drawbacks of producing and using hydrogen, and reviews the Department of Energy's hydrogen program. ​​
