Hydrogen Energy Listening Session

As energy alternatives come to the state in the wake of coal, hydrogen stands out above the rest. However, there are two types of hydrogen energy production, and one of them (Blue Hydrogen) is trying to make its way  into the towns of weary Appalachians. Rather than solid investments in Green Hydrogen, which is much cleaner, safer, and also provides jobs, the state could face the very real future of settling for Blue Hydrogen. The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations is holding a listening session to discuss these implications in the state on March 27 at 6 pm.

If you wish to speak at the session, you must register by Sunday, March 24, at 6 pm. Listeners may register at any time. Technical support for commenting is available; please email info@wvcag.org or message WVCAG on social media for assistance!

From our partners at WV Rivers Coalition

Tell Highway Officials: Choose the Corridor H Route Wisely! Join WV Rivers Coalition in contacting the Federal Highway Administration about selecting the Corridor H route with the fewest negative environmental impacts. Take action now to safeguard Monongahela National Forest, trout streams, and endangered species: wvrivers.salsalabs.org/coorridorh

Officials are currently taking comments to study the two possible routes.

  • Information about the current proposed route is available here.
  • Information about the northern route is also available here.

We commend officials for conducting a SEIS for the Parsons to Davis portion of Corridor H. Highway officials should select the route with the least environmental impacts.

Make sure your comments are heard by state and federal highway officials before March 27, 5 pm.
