  • Hy Stor Energy seeks DOE funding for a large-scale clean hydrogen production and storage facility at the Mississippi Clean Hydrogen Hub (MCHH)
  • The project aims to create a fully integrated clean hydrogen ecosystem for the production, storage, and delivery of renewable energy
  • The company is seeking up to $1 billion in federal investment, combined with existing private funding

The Mississippi Clean Hydrogen Hub (MCHH) is a significant project in the U.S. hydrogen hub landscape. Here are some key points that highlight its uniqueness and competitive advantages:

  1. Scale: The MCHH is planned to be one of the largest green hydrogen projects in the world, with an estimated production capacity of 110,000 tonnes of green hydrogen in its first phase. This is significantly larger than other projects under consideration in the United States.
  2. Renewable Energy: The hub will utilize off-grid renewable power and extensive salt-dome storage capabilities, which are seen as a competitive advantage in the decarbonization of industrial needs.
  3. Storage Capacity: The underground salt caverns at the MCHH will have the capacity to store more than 70,000 tonnes of green hydrogen, which can be used for various applications such as pipelines, ports along the Gulf of Mexico, and railroads.
  4. Partnerships: The MCHH has partnerships with various federal agencies, national labs, universities, community colleges, and industry stakeholders, including the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, National Renewable Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and Oakridge National Laboratory.
  5. Electrolyzer Capacity: Hy Stor Energy has reserved 1 GW of alkaline electrolyzer capacity for the MCHH, which is a significant component of the project’s overall capacity.

These factors collectively position the MCHH as a major player in the U.S. hydrogen hub landscape, with a strong competitive advantage in terms of scale, renewable energy, and storage capabilities.
