The Alliance for Renewable Clean Hydrogen Systems (ARCHES) has applied to the US Department of Energy to establish one of the country’s first clean H2 hubs in California. This move is gaining support from labor unions across the state. The hub aims to accelerate the development and deployment of renewable energy projects and infrastructure in California, resulting in the creation of new green jobs in the state. ARCHES estimates that the economic impact of the hub will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs. If awarded funding, ARCHES’ clean hydrogen hub in California will be one of up to 10 regional hubs across the US to receive funding from the DOE.
