The state is soliciting proposals from firms interested in developing a report and recommendations on the role of green hydrogen and renewable fuels.
The Washington State Department of Commerce has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from firms interested in participating in a project to develop a report and recommendations related to the role of green electrolytic hydrogen and renewable fuels in Washington State.
The department is required through SB 5910 to develop a report and recommendations on this topic and submit it to the legislature by December 1, 2023, and is seeking a consultant with experience working on hydrogen and related topics to assist staff in the research, report writing, and engagement with stakeholders.
Through the RFP the department is seeking to develop a thorough and useful report and recommendations that align with its energy strategy, state greenhouse gas reduction requirements, and economic and environmental justice responsibilities, according to the RFP.
Proposals are due February 28.
A joint Washington-Oregon hydrogen hub concept paper was one of 33 proposals to receive encouragement from the US DOE to submit a full application for a $7bn funding program.
