Ignoring Climate Scientists and Environmental Justice Advocates, DOE Awards Billions to Fossil Fuel Hydrogen
DOE announced the recipients of the Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs funding, more than half of which will go towards Hubs producing hydrogen from fossil fuels with carbon capture and storage.
There are several issues with the EPA’s proposed rules for fossil fuel-fired power plants, the biggest being the inclusion of carbon capture and storage and hydrogen blending as Best Systems of Emissions Reduction pathways for new power plants as well as existing larger capacity plants.
A new year is upon us. This will be a big year for Clean Energy Group (CEG). We were founded 25 years ago, back in 1998 when solar and wind were more of a hopeful concept than the disruptive reality they have become today. Considering the events of last year, 2023 looks to be a…
In a recent webinar, speakers Sean O’Leary from the Ohio River Valley Institute, Erik Schlenker-Goodrich from the Western Environmental Law Center, and CEG’s Abbe Ramanan discussed the pervasive greenwashing of hydrogen.
The Supreme Court decision on Thursday once again bought into the myth of the fossil fuel-based job at the expense of the public health and environmental safety of our most vulnerable communities and is a reminder that the fight for climate justice is far from over.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation punched a hole in the fossil fuel industry’s hydrogen hype bubble when they denied a Title V Air Permit to NRG Energy’s Astoria Gas Turbine Power Plant, citing the project’s non-compliance with New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
How can we protect vulnerable people when the power goes out? Getting it right will be a key energy equity test for the Biden administration’s infrastructure plan.
Clean Energy Group raises concerns about harmful NOx emissions from new industry plans to burn hydrogen in fossil fuel power plants; calls for pause in permitting proposals until independent public health investigations are conducted — particularly to study potentially dangerous air pollution impacts in environmental justice communities.
