Policy Memo: Clean Hydrogen Abatement

Scaling up green hydrogen can help accelerate our clean energy future. Green hydrogen is the process by which hydrogen is created using clean energy sources. In this memo, RMI outlines policy recommendations for successful and viable deployment— as hydrogen will be key to sectors of the clean economy where electrification is not possible.
