Who We Are

The Forefront of Clean Energy Expansion

In recognition of the significant economic and environmental opportunities for hydrogen in Texas, a set of key industry stakeholders has formed an industry Alliance to educate and advocate for effective policies, legislation, and rulemaking that will enable and incentivize the effective pursuit of these opportunities.  The Alliance will also be an entity with industry and technical expertise that can facilitate dialog and convene key stakeholders to enable the growth of a hydrogen economy and markets.

Hydrogen Leadership through Texas Assets

Leveraging Texas’ abundant hydrogen assets and natural resources, this initiative aims to establish Texas as a global leader in hydrogen production, utilization, and export, tapping into its wind and solar potential for electrolytic hydrogen and harnessing carbon capture technology for low carbon intensity hydrogen from natural gas.

Energy Expansion and Job Preservation

This strategy focuses on expanding Texas' energy landscape while preserving oil and gas jobs by promoting the integration of hydrogen technologies, ensuring a smooth shift towards cleaner energy sources and supporting the workforce's growth.

Grid Resilience and Emission-Free Freight

By utilizing wind and solar assets for electrolysis, this approach not only contributes to electricity grid resiliency and long-term energy storage but also facilitates the production of zero-emission hydrogen to power freight movement, reducing carbon impact and enhancing sustainability.

Our Mission

Driving the Hydrogen Revolution

Our goal is to broaden and enhance the understanding of opportunities for hydrogen in Texas and advocate for reshaping the State’s policy and regulatory framework to expedite the adoption of hydrogen technology.
