A hydrogen hub is a cluster of local hydrogen production, storage, utilization and demand. Hubs provide the infrastructure to match the increasing demand to meet our energy needs.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) defines an H2Hub as a “network of clean hydrogen producers, potential clean hydrogen consumers, and connective infrastructure located in close proximity.”
The development of hydrogen hubs is an integral step towards the creation of different types of energy networks. The use of hydrogen helps reduce our carbon footprint, which supports climate change efforts.
The Appalachian region is home to an abundance of hydrogen and major energy and manufacturing companies, making it the perfect location for a hub.
