Ohio-based Clean Hydrogen Hub will fuel business growth and job creation in a broad range of industries across the state.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Recovery Act creates an excellent opportunity for Ohio and Ohioans to reap the economic and environmental benefits generated by the federal government’s massive investment in the development and deployment of clean hydrogen technology.

To ensure that Ohio seizes this exciting opportunity, the Midwest Hydrogen Center of Excellence (MHCE), Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA), Dominion Energy, and Cleveland State University have formed the “Ohio Clean Hydrogen Hub Alliance,” a powerful broad-based coalition that will wage an aggressive, multi-faceted campaign to convince the federal government to site a hydrogen hub in the state.

Your participation in the Alliance will send a loud and clear signal to the Secretary of Energy and the Biden Administration that highly respected individuals and organizations recognize the value of and are invested in the growth of the clean hydrogen economy.

There is no cost associated with joining.  We ask only that you authorize us to list you and/or your organization as members of the Alliance and allow us to send you information about the campaign via email.
