Terry Tamminen Statement on California’s Selection as One of US’s 7 Hydrogen Hubs

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Terry Tamminen Statement on California’s Selection as One of US’s 7 Hydrogen Hubs:

“I’d like to thank President Biden and his administration for recognizing California’s leadership on all things clean energy and allowing us to leverage our expertise to build the infrastructure of a statewide Hydrogen Hub.

I’d like to also congratulate California Governor Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, and the entire Arches H2 network for securing this $1.2 billion in federal funding. This will provide a blueprint for decarbonizing some of the biggest causes of pollutants – public transportation, heavy duty trucking, and port operations.

Hydrogen will play an essential role in creating a cleaner future. The California Hydrogen Hub will create new jobs and expand opportunities for disadvantaged communities, all while making the Golden State greener.”

Terry Tamminen is the President/CEO of AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles and served as the Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency for Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. During his time as CalEPA Secretary, Tamminen was the architect behind California’s Hydrogen Highway, a series of hydrogen refueling stations across California.
