On October 13, 2023, the Appalachian Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub (ARCH2) consortium was selected by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) to establish a clean hydrogen hub in Appalachia. The ARCH2 team is honored to spearhead efforts to establish Appalachia as the nation’s foremost hub for hydrogen solutions. Read the full release here.
HYDROGEN IS THE FUTURE OF
The process of hydrogen capture, utilization, and storage will allow the Appalachian region to enhance our communities, create jobs, lower emissions, and fight climate change.
This will be made possible through the collaborative efforts and partnerships of organizations, companies, non-profits, and other entities within the region.
Our vision is to have a clean, economically viable and socially equitable H2 ecosystem—spanning multiple production, storage, delivery, and diverse end-use applications within the Appalachian region—that serves as a model for a national clean H2 network.
ARCH2 will use the nation’s lowest-cost NG as primary feedstock to enable and sustain a regional H2 economy across multiple end-use sectors in the Appalachian region while ensuring economic benefits are shared fairly and equitably among local communities.
