The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that Heartland Hydrogen Hub has been selected for up to $925 million in grant funding. “North Dakota is already an ag and energy powerhouse and with the Heartland Hydrogen Hub, we’ll play off those strengths with a variety of clean energy projects and jobs,” said Governor Doug Burgum. “With the Energy and Environmental Research Center at University of North Dakota and our partners in the public and private sectors, we’re excited to build on our reputation as a state that feeds and fuels the world with environmental stewardship while delivering a laser focus on innovation.” This news comes a year after Burgum and the governors of Minnesota, Montana, and Wisconsin signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a regional clean hydrogen hub to help meet the nation’s clean energy, transportation, and agricultural needs. Senator John Hoeven’s office released a statement saying that this grant includes funds that will tie in the ADM crush plant at Spiritwood, North Dakota.
