Some in the climate research community argue for prioritizing hydrogen industry growth, rather than immediate emissions reductions.

“A lot of oil companies and energy companies are involved,” said Alan Krupnick, a senior fellow at the think tank Resources for the Future. “And the lowest-hanging fruit is to take your existing hydrogen plant that’s producing gray hydrogen from natural gas and capture the CO2 and put it on your ground or use it for enhanced oil recovery.”

Krupnick said he supports “getting a lot of action and getting all these projects going.”
