Biden-Harris Administration announce $750 million towards clean hydrogen projects ahead of World Hydrogen North America in Houston this May

The global focus on hydrogen as a clean, versatile, and sustainable energy carrier continues to intensify. The Biden-Harris Administration’s announcement of a $750 million investment across 52 projects to support America’s growing clean hydrogen economy, as highlighted in a recent article published by the U.S. Department of Energy, underscores the momentum behind hydrogen as a critical component of the nation’s energy transition.

Against this backdrop, the upcoming World Hydrogen North AmericaCongress is poised to convene in Houston from May 21 to May 23, 2024, to discuss the latest advancements, challenges, and opportunities within the hydrogen industry. The timing of this event aligns with recent significant developments in the hydrogen sector.

Lucy Rankin, Program Director at World Hydrogen Leaders, commented “This announcement is a major milestone, and represents a significant opportunity to accelerate the adoption of hydrogen as a clean energy solution. We’re eager to delve into this topic further in Houston. As these ambitious plans move toward implementation, the industry is still encountering real challenges that must be addressed. From evolving regulations to supply chain constraints, it’s clear this transition will not come without growing pains. That’s why events like World Hydrogen North America are so valuable right now. By bringing together key players across the hydrogen value chain, we can align on solutions to current obstacles, forge new partnerships, and ultimately accelerate the energy transition.”

World Hydrogen North America promises to bring together over 1,200 key stakeholders, thought leaders, policymakers, and industry experts to explore the pivotal role of hydrogen in shaping North America’s energy landscape.

Organized by World Hydrogen Leaders, the conference will feature engaging discussions, insightful presentations, and networking opportunities tailored to foster collaboration and innovation.

The conference agenda covers a diverse range of topics with over 50 hours of content and 6 content-led streams, with program highlights including:
