New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced a $10 million initiative to advance clean hydrogen research, development and demonstration projects aimed at replacing fossil fuel use in hard-to-electrify sectors.
Applicable New York-based entities must also be actively applying for federal clean hydrogen funding opportunities, and successful awards will be contingent on securing federal funding.
NOTE: We are currently accepting speaker submissions for presentations at POWERGEN International on January 23-25, 2024 in New Orleans. Topics include hydrogen co-firing through our track Unlocking Hydrogen’s Power Potential. Submit an abstract for a chance to join our speaker lineup here.
The new initiative will operate in tandem with the state’s overall advancement of a clean hydrogen ecosystem, which includes the Northeast Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub. Hub partners include New York, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Vermont, along with over 100 hydrogen ecosystem partners, who collaborated on the development of a proposal submitted to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in early April for funding.
Applicants can compete for funding under four technical challenge areas for emerging research, development and demonstrations of clean hydrogen including:
- Hydrogen applications to decarbonize industrial process heat
- Clean hydrogen production and integration with renewable energy such as solar and offshore wind
- Mitigation of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in hydrogen combustion
- Hydrogen storage technologies, including bulk storage and storage in limited footprint areas
