Washington, December 6, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC—Representatives Paul D. Tonko (D-NY) and Stephanie Bice (R-OK) today introduced the Department of Energy Clean Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research, Development, and Demonstration Act of 2022, bipartisan legislation that would empower the Department of Energy (DOE) to strengthen its efforts to support R&D of clean hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.
“Throughout my time in Congress, I’ve worked to advance forward-thinking legislation that will support innovation and development of U.S. industries while tackling the threat of climate change,” Congressman Tonko said. “Clean hydrogen offers us an opportunity to secure a clean energy future. But these opportunities will not be realized without strong federal investment. I’m proud to join Congresswoman Bice to introduce this bill that invests in clean hydrogen research and development. I urge my colleagues to join us in supporting this bill and driving American innovation.”
“Oklahoma is striving to become a leader in hydrogen production, transportation, and storage,” Rep. Bice said. “This legislation instructs the Secretary of Energy to implement a program of research, development, demonstration, and commercial application of hydrogen for its implementation as an energy source. I am grateful for the leadership of Congressman Tonko on this important issue.”
