Overview of Section 45V Clean Hydrogen Production Tax Credit

The Clean Hydrogen Production Tax Credit, part of the Inflation Reduction Act, offers a 10-year incentive up to $3.00/kg for clean hydrogen production, with the credit amount based on the production's carbon intensity, capped at four kg CO2e/kg H2. This initiative aims to foster the development of low-carbon hydrogen as a key element in the transition to a cleaner energy landscape.

  • Credit Details: The credit measures the carbon intensity of hydrogen production pathways using the Argonne National Laboratory's GREET model, setting strict standards for emissions up to the point of production.
  • Implementation: The credit's application is dependent on meeting stringent environmental and operational standards, ensuring that only the cleanest hydrogen production methods are incentivized.
