Energy Transition

DOE Hydrogen Hub Winners 

byAlex Nevokshonoff

The DOE recently announced seven clean hydrogen hubs eligible for a combined $7 billion in public funding (Figure 1). Each hub developed a unique hydrogen production strategy that was chosen to best utilize the regionally available resources such as renewable energy type and quality, nuclear availability, existing infrastructure and carbon sequestration basin viability. 

Across these metrics, the Gulf Coast’s HyVelocity hub stands out above the rest with excellent renewable energy resources in western Texas, extensive CO2 and H2 pipeline and storage infrastructure, and world-class carbon sequestration basins. Furthermore, the Gulf Coast is home to the highest concentration of primary hydrogen use cases which include refining, ammonia, petrochemical and steel production, and power generation. Enverus Intelligence® Research (EIR) estimates the HyVelocity hub is surrounded by the largest number of these brownfield facilities within a 30-mile radius (70), followed by the Mid-Atlantic Clean Hydrogen Hub (49) and the Midwest Alliance for Clean Hydrogen hub (46).
