Second Annual Hydrogen Policy Leaders Convention
This event brings together USHA members, hydrogen companies, and local, state, and federal policymakers from across the country.
This 3-day event provides the opportunity for our national alliance to come together to build the policy framework for the upcoming year that will shape the hydrogen economy.
Hydrogen Policies Throughout the States
The Sustainable Energy Council held the Hydrogen Americas 2023 Summit & Exhibition co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington D.C., the region’s meeting place to accelerate clean hydrogen projects, policies and partnerships.
Our founder and executive director presented on "Hydrogen Policies Throughout the States"
Global Virtual World Energy Storage Day Event
Session: Green Hydrogen
With a rising focus on the effective integration of renewable energy, the importance of electric vehicle and reliable, resilient energy supply, energy storage is becoming an increasingly important tool in the electricity ecosystem.
World Hydrogen Mobility Pre-event Webinar
Hydrogen has huge potential to decarbonise the hard to abate sectors, this is certainly the case with mobility. Heavy duty vehicles, shipping, and rail are all exploring hydrogen as a solution to decarbonising operations and supply chains. This does not come without its challenges and this webinar will address these challenges and discuss potential solutions and opportunities for the mobility sector when it comes to hydrogen.
The Hydrogen Highway: Fueling California’s Carbon Neutral Journey
A thought-provoking conversation on hydrogen, the most basic element in the universe, and explore its potential within the context of California’s ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2045. We’ll be shedding light on the role of hydrogen in the state’s journey towards a just and equitable energy transition.

Overview of Clean Energy

This webinar will provide an overview of tax incentives and grant programs within the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). These two laws contain hundreds of billions of new dollars for clean energy development and deployment. The discussion will include strategies on how best to utilize these programs to realize up to 50% and in some cases even 70% tax credits for certain projects and, when paired with new and existing grant programs, potentially shorten project payback timelines to months, rather than years.
Specific Strategies Related to Hydrogen

This webinar will provide an overview of hydrogen-specific tax incentives and grant programs within the Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This will include the Clean Hydrogen Production Credit, Carbon Oxide Sequestration Credit, DOE Hydrogen Hubs and more. The presentation will also cover best practices and strategies to maximize the billions of dollars newly available for the hydrogen industry and to build robust commercial hydrogen markets under the BIL and IRA.

This webinar will provide an overview of tax incentives and available grant dollars for alternative fuels and associated technologies. The presentation will cover strategies for developing and revamping commercial fleets that run on alternative fuels, as well as incentives and grants aimed at building out America’s alternative fueling infrastructure.
Incentives for Tribal Energy Projects

This webinar will provide an overview of tax incentives and available grant programs, including hundreds of billions of dollars unlocked by the IRA, BIL and other programs available to tribal nations. Utilizing newly created key IRA provisions, and combined with existing and expanded federal programs and tribal regulatory authority, tribes and business entities who work directly with tribes can implement very cost-effective clean energy projects.
Opportunities for State and Local Governments

This webinar will provide an overview of tax incentives and available grant programs for clean energy projects specifically tailored to state and local governments. New and expanded grant programs, significantly increased tax incentives, and a new unprecedented “Direct Pay” option now allow states and local governments to pursue clean energy projects in a very cost-effective way. This program will include strategies on how businesses and local governments can work together to take advantage of the hundreds of billions of dollars available through the IRA and BIL.
Opportunities for Local and Public Infrastructure
The BIL and IRA created new federal programs, and expanded existing programs, that provide billions of dollars aimed at an overhaul of America’s transportation infrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of tax incentives and grant programs related to public transportation infrastructure, including ports and airports
