Houston selected as one of 7 U.S. hydrogen hubs, opening up $1.2 billion in federal funding
The Houston Chronicle, Oct. 13, 2023
The Gulf Coast hub, which would be centered in Houston, will receive up to $1.2 billion in federal funding and is expected to be the largest of the seven hubs in terms of clean hydrogen production. It will produce both blue hydrogen, made from natural gas with carbon emissions stored underground, and green hydrogen, made by running electricity from wind and solar farms through water — a process long used by NASA to power spaceships.
