US underlines bullish stance on nuclear hydrogen

Demonstration projects and research underway to bring the cost of high temperature electrolysis down to parity with steam methane reforming

The US has reiterated its aim to position nuclear power as a key source of commercially viable hydrogen production. Four projects are in progress to demonstrate nuclear hydrogen’s value proposition at operating plants using both low- and high-temperature steam electrolysis, says David Livingston, senior adviser in the US Department of State. In addition, work is underway at the Idaho National Lab with a Connecticut-based company to bring the cost of high temperature electrolysis to parity with steam methane reforming, Livingston told the Hydrogen Americas Summit this week. “In many important cases, nuclear can be the most cost-effective and efficient method for producing hydro
