cooperatives that are 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 – the second
of a two-part series – provides an overview of some of the hydrogen R&D
projects planned or underway and looks at economics of hydrogen and
perspectives on the future of hydrogen.
