Hydrogen Production to Begin by 2023 at Oswego Nuclear Plant
Nine Mile Point in Oswego will soon begin the production of hydrogen power, as early as this year, according to officials at the plant.
On Wednesday, officials from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) were in Oswego alongside leaders from Constellation Energy Corp. highlighting the progress of the nation’s first nuclear-powered clean hydrogen production facility.
“Clean hydrogen is an essential tool in addressing the climate crisis, and in a few short months we will demonstrate to the world how essential carbon-free nuclear energy is to unlock its potential,” said Joe Dominguez, president, and CEO of Constellation. “Building on the vision and strong support from DOE and NYSERDA, we are eager to help develop the technology and infrastructure needed to build a clean hydrogen economy, create jobs and secure our domestic energy security.”
