The United States is waging an ordeal for Europe and matching the target of 10 million tons of hydrogen in 2030

Today the United States launched its hydrogen development strategy, which is a real misfortune for Europe. The Biden administration has set a national production target of 10 million tons in 2030, which means matching the European Union’s commitment in the Repower EU program that sets the same amount of domestic production, although it considers that a similar amount will have to be imported from abroad.

The Biden-Harris Administration provides a comprehensive framework to accelerate the production, processing, delivery, storage and use of clean hydrogen.

It is estimated that the growing hydrogen economy in the United States has the potential to create 100,000 new direct and indirect jobs by 2030. Developed by the US Department of Energy (DOE), in collaboration with other federal agencies, the Strategy and Roadmap outline the President’s approach to addressing the climate crisis and achieving A carbon-neutral network by 2035 and a zero-emissions economy by 2050.

According to the Department of Energy’s Pathways to Commercial Takeoff: Clean Hydrogen report, a growing hydrogen economy will enable the development of diverse national clean energy pathways across multiple sectors of the economy, and clean hydrogen will advance America’s energy independence and accelerate the rise of American manufacturing, which has already created more than 800,000 jobs since President Biden took office.

The strategy and roadmap provides a snapshot of hydrogen production, transportation, storage and use in the United States today and a vision for how clean hydrogen can contribute to national decarbonization goals across multiple sectors in the future. It studies future demand scenarios, with strategic opportunities for domestic production of 10 million metric tons (MMT) of clean hydrogen annually in 2030, 20 million tons in 2040, and 50 million tons in 2050. It also completes a historic investment of $9.5 billion American dollar. Clean hydrogen through the bipartisan President’s Infrastructure Act, ongoing research and development efforts across the federal government, plus strong political incentives – including a new tax on hydrogen production and a Clean Hydrogen Credit – in the historic Inflation Reduction Act.
