Schumer, Morelle Announce $90+ Million To Supercharge Plug Power & Clean Hydrogen Companies Across Upstate NY Via The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – Strengthening Clean Energy Innovation & Powering Research In Fight Against Climate Change.

 

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer and U.S. Congressman Joe Morelle today announced over $90 million in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Hydrogen Manufacturing, Recycling, and Electrolysis programs created in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act. The lawmakers said this will help bolster Upstate New York as a continued global leader for clean hydrogen production by advancing cutting edge R&D to help NY companies like Plug Power improve manufacturing capabilities at its facilities, including its Rochester, NY gigafactory, directly supporting Upstate’s clean energy workforce and supercharging innovation in the fight against climate change.  

 

Senator Schumer, said:

 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure & Jobs Law is helping supercharge Upstate NY’s clean hydrogen sector.

 

“With this federal funding, Plug Power and other cutting-edge companies will be able to increase production capacity and spark new innovation to reach the next frontier of clean hydrogen manufacturing and research, all while supporting good paying clean energy jobs and boosting the fight against climate change” 

 

“Clean green hydrogen is one of the most exciting forms of new energy production and with the major federal investments being made thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act I championed, Upstate NY is poised to lead the way in powering America’s clean energy future.”

 

Congressman Joe Morelle, said:

 

New York is a leader in green energy and innovative technologies—thanks in no small part to the work of Rochester businesses like Plug Power and Ionomr Innovations.

 

“I congratulate them on this significant investment which is a testament to the cutting-edge work they do to bring our economy into its green energy future. I’m proud to have worked alongside Senator Schumer to secure this funding, and I look forward to more opportunities to work alongside him and my colleagues on the House Appropriations Committee to bring more federal investments like this one home to Rochester.”

 

Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug, said:

 

Plug is appreciative and excited about the DOE’s clean energy manufacturing initiatives and the awards announced today. 

 

“We believe that they will have a profound impact on Plug’s industry-leading manufacturing capabilities in fuel cell and electrolyzer MEAs (Membrane Electrode Assemblies) and stacks,”

 

“Congress has enacted these policies and enabled these programs to advance hydrogen and fuel cells as vital components of the United States’ energy and climate strategy.  These cost-shared programs will advance Plug’s fuel cell and electrolyzer manufacturing capacities, create good paying jobs in New York, and fortify the region’s leadership in the national clean energy transition.”
