Energy giants, Bill Gates back effort to map ‘clean’ hydrogen

David Iaconangelo of E&E News reports on a new clean hydrogen working group.

The C3 Take
  • The Open Hydrogen Initiative (OHI) includes Shell, Exxon Mobil, Breakthrough Energy, and other industrial partners.
  • OHI will work with the private sector to develop ways to accurately measure, report, and verify greenhouse gas emissions reductions from clean hydrogen use.
  • Establishing these metrics will play a pivotal role in expanding the clean hydrogen market.

“The list of members in the initiative announced this morning include Gates’ Breakthrough Energy; investor-owned utilities such as National Grid PLC, Dominion Energy Inc. and Duke Energy Corp.; oil and gas producers such as EQT Corp., Shell PLC and Exxon Mobil Corp.; and advocates at Hydrogen Forward, the Renewable Hydrogen Alliance and the Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition. Academics and think-tank researchers from the Clean Air Task Force, the Bipartisan Policy Center, Columbia University, Stanford University’s Hydrogen Initiative and the government of Alberta, Canada, also are among the new backers.”
