Southern California Gas Co. has submitted several research and development initiatives designed to enable low-cost, clean hydrogen to the U.S. Department of Energy’s “Earthshot” Hydrogen Program’s RFI.
The submissions are intended to help DOE’s Hydrogen Program prioritize projects that would accelerate clean hydrogen innovations that could reduce emissions, create jobs and facilitate a net-zero carbon emissions economy by 2050. SoCalGas is working with multiple collaborators on these initiatives, including the University of California Irvine, University of California Los Angeles, and the Green Hydrogen Coalition, among others.
“Green hydrogen is a renewable energy source that can be ready-to-go whenever it’s needed for power generation, manufacturing or transportation,” said Maryam Brown, SoCalGas president. “We believe this flexible, storable fuel will be essential to achieving net-zero emissions in California, and that is why we are working collabor
