Wyoming Joins Other Western States in Joint Response to DOE
On March 17, the Western Inter-States Hydrogen Hub (WISHH) MOU States and the “Collaboratory” submitted a joint response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Request for Information (RFI) on the Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs Implementation Strategy.
The response can be found here.
The submission was a collective effort between WISHH - the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming - led by the “Collaboratory.” The Collaboratory was formally chartered in 2007 as the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory, and has been expanded in recent months to all four states; the expanded organization is now in the charter process.
In a joint statement, the State energy leaders said, “We’re excited to submit our answers to the RFI, and it’s a pleasure working together. We look forward to continued collaboration as we begin focusing our efforts on the next steps.”
The state energy leaders of the WISHH include Thom Carter, Energy Advisor to Governor Cox of Utah; Randall Luthi, Chief Energy Advisor to Governor Gordon of Wyoming; Will Toor, Executive Director of the Colorado Energy Office; Sarah Cottrell Propst, Secretary of the New Mexico Energy Minerals and Natural Resources Department; and James Kenney, Secretary of the New Mexico Environment Department.
