Where climate tech gets real.

Focus Area: Hydrogen and Clean Fuels

New York State has committed to 70% renewable electricity by 2030, 100% zero-emission electricity by 2040, and net zero emission statewide by 2050. To achieve these goals, New York State recognizes that hydrogen and clean fuels offer resilience solutions and opportunities to decarbonize hard-to-electrify sectors such as medium- and heavy-duty transportation, industrial processes, building heating and power generation; and to provide zero-carbon grid firm capacity and emergency responses; and to reduce renewable curtailment as an energy storage method.

Developers of new technologies for the use of clean fuels find technical assistance and commercialization support in NYSERDA’s Hydrogen and Clean Fuel Program.

Investment Areas

  • Clean hydrogen production utilizing renewables such as solar, wind, hydropower, and nuclear
  • Clean hydrogen infrastructure including transmission, distribution and storage
  • Clean hydrogen applications in transportation, building heating, industrial processes, power generation, grid firming and energy storage
  • Innovation in other low carbon clean fuels, such as green ammonia and sustainable aviation fuel. 


In addition to state and local government partners, NYSERDA partners with national labs, academic institutions, developers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), and utilities to further the development of hydrogen and clean fuel solutions.
