California – On National Hydrogen Day, the Alliance for Renewable Clean Hydrogen Energy Systems (ARCHES) released the following statement from Chief Executive Officer Angelina Galiteva:
“ARCHES is proud to honor and celebrate Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day! As California’s hydrogen hub initiative, we’re excited to bring to life important H2 infrastructure projects up and down the state that will directly reduce carbon emissions, improve our air quality and benefit local communities, all while bringing hundreds of thousands of new jobs to California. Renewable clean hydrogen is an integral part of California’s clean energy future and will play an important role in decarbonizing all sectors of the economy.”
Earlier this year, ARCHES submitted an application to the US Department of Energy (DOE) to become a H2Hub as part of the DOE’s Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs program.
ARCHES is California’s public-private hydrogen (H2) hub consortium to accelerate the development and deployment of clean, renewable H2 projects and infrastructure. Clean H2 can supplement renewable energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and advance a zero-carbon economy. The US Department of Energy will award $8 billion to up to 10 regional H2Hubs to build self-sustaining H2 economies of producers, infrastructure, and users. In partnership with the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), ARCHES unites key public and private stakeholders to build the framework for a California renewable, clean H2Hub.
ARCHES includes major planned deployments in the Los Angeles Basin and SF Bay Areas, and across the Central Valley, Inland Empire, and other regions. Using 100% renewable resources, ARCHES projects will dramatically reduce GHG and pollutant emissions, improve the lives of California’s citizens, and produce hundreds of thousands of good, green careers for California’s workforce.
