NiSource Inc. (NYSE: NI) commends the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) on awarding $7 billion in grants for hydrogen hubs, including a number that the company is integrally involved with, such as the Midwest Alliance for Clean Hydrogen Hub and the Appalachian Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub.
We look forward to playing an important role in creating the infrastructure that will help make hydrogen an affordable, cleaner energy solution.
NiSource also recently launched a multi-phase hydrogen blending project – one of the first in the United States to use a blending skid in a controlled setting to mix hydrogen and natural gas at precise levels to determine optimal blend percentages and their environmental and consumer benefits.
Michael Luhrs, Executive Vice President of Strategy, Risk, Chief Commercial Officer, NiSource, said:
The future of energy will require a balanced mix of energy options to ensure an equitable transition for everyone.
“Hydrogen is an abundant, reliable, zero-carbon fuel source and we are excited to explore this source as a diverse, clean energy option to provide direct benefits for all customers and as an alternative source for electric generation.”
