The Clean Hydrogen Program was established by Assembly Bill 209 (The Energy and Climate Change budget bill, Chapter 251, Section 12, Chapter 7.6, Article 4, enacted in September 2022) to demonstrate or scale-up hydrogen projects that produce, process, deliver, store, or use hydrogen derived from water using eligible renewable energy resources, or produced from these eligible renewable energy resources.
Projects receiving financial incentives must:
- Reduce sector-wide emissions.
