HyVelocity Hub: Rapidly Scaling Clean Hydrogen Supply and Demand

The HyVelocity Hub is a collaborative comprised of non-profit research organizations, academia, and leading energy companies working to advance the clean hydrogen ecosystem in Texas, Southwest Louisiana, and along the U.S. Gulf Coast. With more than 1,000 miles of dedicated hydrogen pipelines, and 48 hydrogen production plants, the Gulf Coast is already the nation’s largest hydrogen producer. It is home to a diverse array of energy resources, including hydrogen production facilities and pipelines, a large base of industrial energy consumers, and a skilled workforce. The HyVelocity Hub will support and build on Houston’s Clean Hydrogen Roadmap.

GTI Energy, Center for Houston’s Future, and The University of Texas at Austin are among the founding members of the HyVelocity Hub which seeks Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.
