ARCH2 projects will integrate clean hydrogen production and end-use with connecting infrastructure and existing regional assets.
The ARCH2 hub’s location is centered in the nation’s second-largest natural gas-producing region, which provides an abundance of end-use opportunities across multiple sectors.
The Appalachian region has a highly skilled energy workforce with support from labor organizations, environmental non-profits, and community stakeholders.
World-class academic and technology institutions based in Northern Appalachia will develop technologies, solutions, and the associated labor skills necessary to achieve and sustain a clean hydrogen economy in the region.
There is vast opportunity to positively impact disadvantaged and underserved communities via job creation and environment and energy justice.
ARCH2 will provide clean energy jobs throughout fossil energy and coal energy communities that are so prevalent in Northern Appalachia.
