The C3 Take
  • Energy Harbor, which owns nuclear power plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania, has applied for funding from the Department of Energy’s Hydrogen Hubs program to establish a clean hydrogen hub in the Great Lakes region.
  • Energy Harbor, which is leading the Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Hub (GLCH), is asking for $2 billion to create a hydrogen hub which would provide Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana with carbon free fuel.
  • GLCH’s members includes Energy Harbor, the University of Toledo, major industrial companies in the Great Lakes region, and several national laboratories.
  • Public-private partnerships like the Hydrogen Hubs program is critical for advancing clean energy innovation.

“The GLCH’s application details a $2 billion plan to create a hydrogen hub to provide Ohio, Michigan, and portions of Pennsylvania and Indiana with clean hydrogen from nuclear power at a competitive cost. According to the announcement, the GLCH plan has a well-defined scope, is commercially feasible, and will utilize proven production technologies to minimize the time required to achieve full production of 100-plus metric tons of hydrogen per day.”
