Biden Clean hydrogen Roadmap The US government unveiled an important initiative that will unleash an opportunity for hydrogen development. The Biden-Harris Administration released the country’s first National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap – a comprehensive framework for accelerating the production, processing, delivery, storage, and use of clean hydrogen.
The goal of the Roadmap is to enable the building up of a strong hydrogen economy in the US. The targets set up in the future demand scenarios of hydrogen use are: 10 million metric tonnes (MMT) of clean hydrogen domestically produced annually by 2030, 20 MMT annually by 2040, and 50 MMT annually by 2050. Terri’s Note (Hydrogen is seen as an important tool in lowering CO2 from freight).
Inside Climate News Story on EVs Electric-vehicle market share has soared in the last decade, but there has been no measurable change in the share of consumers who want to buy an EV just because it’s an EV.
This finding, from a recent paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, indicates that the growth in demand for EVs is largely due to the appeal of the models’ technology and features, not a deeper attachment to the idea of owning an EV than in the past.
During the Climeworks DAC Summit another favorite section had Dr. Marcius Extivour speak on ‘How Carbon Dioxide Removal Fits Into The Broader Climate Solutions Conversation in 2023”. One of my favorite moments in the talk was when he discussed that the CDR community is not yet really “in” to the climate change conversation. Instead, he says, we hug the periphery.
The entire summit is now available in recordings.
