Constellation is a major participant in the MachH2 hydrogen hub recently selected for up to $1 billion by the Department of Energy (DOE) as part of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
Constellation will use a portion of the hub funding to build the world’s largest nuclear-powered clean hydrogen production facility at its LaSalle Clean Energy Center in Illinois. The project will produce an estimated 33,450 tons of clean hydrogen each year and create thousands of well-paying jobs. Constellation estimates its LaSalle clean hydrogen facility will cost about $900 million, with a portion of the MachH2 award offsetting the project’s cost.
The Midwest Alliance for Clean Hydrogen (MachH2) is made up of more than 70 public and private entities representing every phase in the hydrogen value chain. The projects are concentrated in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan, with further representation from Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. With this award, the hub
