October 19, 2023 – Lansing, Mich. – Last Friday the Department of Energy announced $7 billion to launch seven regional clean hydrogen hubs. The following statement can be attributed to John Szoka, CEO of the Conservative Energy Network (CEN).

“CEN state teams across the country worked diligently to build bipartisan coalitions that successfully competed for regional clean hydrogen hubs. This investment will bring tens of thousands of jobs and more than $40 billion of private economic investment to local communities. CEN applauds the Indiana Conservative Alliance for Energy, Michigan Conservative Energy Forum, Minnesota Conservative Energy Forum, Ohio Conservative Energy Forum, Pennsylvania Conservative Energy Forum, and Conservative Texans for Energy Innovation for their work in bringing this investment to their respective states.

The announcement of these hydrogen hubs represents a massive investment in American-led innovation, clean energy jobs, and manufacturing. Our state teams stand at the ready to help see these projects through to completion. Increasing access to American energy is crucial as the United States pursues a cleaner, energy independent future.”

Per the Department of Energy, clean hydrogen is a flexible energy carrier that can be produced from a diverse mix of domestic clean energy resources, including renewables, nuclear, and fossil resources with safe and responsible carbon capture.
