The letter said it was critical for US definitions to promote practices that guarantee hydrogen produced with renewable power is “minimally carbon intensive.”
“Ultimately, the clean hydrogen PTC could enable the delivery of reliable, near zero-carbon hydrogen throughout international markets – but this will depend on the standards that define clean hydrogen in the US,” the GHC said.
