H2 Twin Cities winners announced at COP27

The US Department of Energy – together with the governments of Japan and UK – has announced the winners of the H2 Twin Cities 2022 at COP27.

Launched by the United States at COP26, the H2 Twin Cities is a global programme under the Clean Energy Ministerial’ s Hydrogen Initiative to connect cities and communities around the world to deploy clean hydrogen solutions, given hydrogen is a versatile fuel for decarbonising electricity generation and industrial applications, such as in buildings and manufacturing. This year’s winners are:

  • A Mentor-Mentee partnership where the US city of Lancaster, CA, and Namie Town in Japan, will serve as mentors to Hawai’i County sharing lessons learned and collectively accelerating progress in clean hydrogen
  • A Sibling partnership where Aberdeen and Kobe will collaborate to promote clean hydrogen growth opportunities locally

In the first programme, mentors have pledged to share best practices and strategies with the mentee to collectively accelerate progress in hydrogen and fuel cells. Their activities will support goals of carbon neutrality by 2035 and address mutual priorities to develop a skilled workforce and to strengthen diversity, equity and inclusion, and environmental justice practices as they transition to a clean energy future.

The resources and opportunities resulting from the collaboration will focus on the impact clean hydrogen solutions can have on citizens’ lives, regional infrastructure, and the environment.
