Midwestern partnership backs hydrogen as clean energy source

A Toyota Motor Corp.'s new hydrogen fuel cell vehicle Mirai arrives at a charge station near Toyota's showroom on Nov. 17, 2014, in Tokyo. Seven Midwestern states are teaming up to accelerate the development of hydrogen as a clean-energy alternative for automobiles and factories that rely largely on climate-warming fossil fuels, governors said Monday, Sept. 19, 2022.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Seven Midwestern states are teaming up to accelerate the development of hydrogen as a clean energy source.

The Midwestern Hydrogen Coalition will include Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

Hydrogen is used to power some cars, trucks and trains. But a shortage of fueling stations limits their appeal.

Laws enacted by Congress and supported by President Joe Biden offer funding to regional “hubs” that will encourage the production of hydrogen with methods that don’t generate greenhouse gases.
