Major US Southeast energy companies have joined forces to establish a new hydrogen hub coalition.

Utilities including Dominion Energy, Duke Energy, Southern Company and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) will apply for government funding for a Southeast Hydrogen Hub under the recently-announced opportunity by the Department of Energy which includes $8 billion for regional hydrogen hubs.

The hydrogen hub will support each coalition member’s carbon reduction goals and help accelerate decarbonisation across all sectors of the economy.

By working together, the coalition – which also includes Louisville Gas & Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company (LG&E and KU) and Battelle – will focus on developing scalable, integrated projects at key locations across the entire Southeast.

Mark Webb, Chief Innovation Officer of Dominion Energy said: “Hydrogen will play an important role in our region’s clean energy transition and Dominion Energy’s path to net zero emissions.

“From electricity and home heating to transportation and manufacturing, hydrogen will bring jobs, investment and clean energy to every sector of the Southeast US economy. We’re excited to partner with all the members of the Southeast Hydrogen Hub coalition to deliver on this promise for our customers and the communities we serve.”
