Colorado Senator authors bill with the capability to enhance the presence of the hydrogen economy in Colorado

February 18, 2020 |

In Colorado, EnergyNews reports that Senator Chris Hansen has authored a bill that would require natural gas utilities in Colorado to integrate renewable energy— where suppliers would source some of their gas from dairies, landfills, and other sources. The bill would require 5% renewable natural gas by 2025, and 15% within a decade. As an auxiliary feature of the bill, the proposal seeks to create market incentives for utilities to adopt hydrogen. Senator Hansen stated that he believed that the bill will be a great way to demonstrate the value of hydrogen production, however, he acknowledges that it will take several years to mature.
