The First Action Plan to Grow the Pacific Northwest Renewable Hydrogen
environmental and social value
for communities from economic development investments.
The Pacific Northwest is uniquely positioned to become a global leader in Renewable Hydrogen.
Renewable Hydrogen (RH2), and the fuels derived from it, have a critically important role to play in the world's transition to carbon-free, climate-friendly energy systems. The PNW has abundant renewable energy and frequent surpluses of renewable electricity that can be used to produce RH2, in ways that can actually help lower power prices.
As we've seen with wind and solar power and energy efficiency, regions that move aggressively to lead in advancing the right clean energy technologies at the right time - can reap significant economic benefits including the growth of jobs, businesses, investment and local and state tax revenues.
How It Works
Industrial symbiosis at its most basic - is about resource sharing whereby one's industry's 'waste' becomes another industry's resource, for example: excess heat, water or other materials.
