The NHA Renewable Hydrogen Working Group was created in March of 2006, the first meeting held at the NHA Annual Hydrogen Conference. The NHA member working group was developed, through member input, to address the following priorities:

  1. Develop a market entry model and transition schedule vision for the rollout of renewable hydrogen

  2. Explore and develop the role of state incentives for renewable energy sources for renewable energy to produce hydrogen

  3. Define economic, environmental, and strategic relationships between renewable energy and hydrogen
The Renewable Hydrogen Working Group aims to be involved with various renewable energy associations, with the goal of increased awareness of renewable hydrogen energy strategies. The Working Group will also steer the development of the first NHA Renewable Hydrogen Forum planned for the fall of 2006.
