Today, Clean Air Task Force (CATF) joined with more than 40 key stakeholders to launch the Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative, a global coalition working to advance nuclear hydrogen as a critical climate solution.
“As a global climate NGO committed to pursuing all promising decarbonization pathways, Clean Air Task Force is proud to join the Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative, helping to highlight the important role nuclear energy can play in supplying the world with carbon-free hydrogen,” said Carlos Leipner, Director of Global Nuclear Energy Strategy at CATF. “We know we need more energy options on the table, not fewer, and are committed to advancing nuclear hydrogen as part of an expanded suite of climate solutions.”
The initiative will engage policymakers, businesses, investors, and other key stakeholders around the world to raise awareness of the important role nuclear energy technology, particularly advanced reactors can play in delivering clean hydrogen for various zero-carbon fuel applications in many energy segments that are difficult to electrify and abate carbon emissions. NHI will facilitate the development of nuclear hydrogen demonstrations, engage the financial sector in nuclear hydrogen development, catalyze commercial partnerships, and advocate for policies that support nuclear hydrogen deployment.
