As of May 21, 2024, the Clean Hydrogen Program’s active and upcoming solicitations are paused until further notice pending the final outcome of state budget appropriations. Interested applicants may subscribe to the Clean Hydrogen Program topic for updates using the “Subscribe” box on this webpage.

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.
  • Benefit geographically diverse areas of the state.
  • Maximize air quality, equity, health, and workforce benefits.

Governor Newsom released the 2024-25 Revised State Budget Proposal, which called for reducing the Clean Hydrogen Program funding from $65 million to $40 million and delaying funding until fiscal year 2025-2026. The contents and funding amounts for each solicitation will be updated and announced as soon as possible. In the meantime, the following solicitations are paused until further notice:
