U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick is among supporters of Gov. Tom Wolf’s efforts to make Pennsylvania a leader in the development of clean hydrogen and ensure Pennsylvania’s competitiveness to be a Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub through an investment by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Fitzpatrick was part of a congressional delegation that signed a bipartisan statement, highlighting Pennsylvania’s shared commitment to expand and modernize the state’s industrial and manufacturing base with less carbon-intensive forms of energy.
The statement read, “Pennsylvania has all the building blocks it needs to be successful in this new energy ecosystem: a competitive advantage in energy production, promising geology for permanently storing carbon dioxide, a diverse economy with a strong industrial base and highly skilled workforce, and a commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“The undersigned are aligned in their commitment to take the steps necessary to create a regional ecosystem to achieve decarbonization, transition to clean hydrogen, and to ensure the commonwealth is competitive in attracting investments and creating jobs in all parts of its economy.”
