PNWH2: An Overview

Our vision is to create a clean hydrogen ecosystem across the Pacific Northwest to improve the lives and futures of people throughout the region.

The Pacific Northwest Hydrogen Association (PNWH2) is creating a hydrogen network to develop and bring clean hydrogen solutions to the market that leverage the region’s renewable energy sources and help meet the nation’s clean energy goals.

MISSION + VISION

Our vision is to create a clean hydrogen ecosystem across the Pacific Northwest to improve the lives and futures of people throughout the region.

The Pacific Northwest Hydrogen Association (PNWH2) is a multi-state nonprofit organization made up of public and private partners across the Pacific Northwest region. We seek to accelerate deployment of hydrogen infrastructure to attract greater investment and promote high-quality jobs with a strong focus on social equity and environmental justice as guiding principles. In doing so, we aim to establish the Pacific Northwest as a national benchmark for successful low-carbon intensity and economically viable hydrogen production to decarbonize hard-to-abate industries.

The Association includes representatives from Tribal Nations, labor, business and industry, higher education, government, and the environmental community spanning Oregon, Washington and Montana. Together, we are working toward the shared goal of expanding our commitment to community engagement and environmental justice and bringing this growing industry and clean jobs to the region.

PROJECTS

Addressing decarbonization challenges across industries.

The PNWH2 Hub’s proposed projects across Washington, Oregon, and Montana aim to address decarbonization challenges for heavy-duty transportation, agriculture, and industrial operations. These projects, known as “nodes,” will work collectively to produce, store, transport, and utilize low-carbon hydrogen.

By fostering strong collaboration with tribal and local communities, and supported by federal and state funding, the Hub will play a crucial role in advancing the hydrogen economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the Pacific Northwest.
