In 2021 the Department of Energy established the first Energy Earthshot – Hydrogen Shot – to reduce the cost of hydrogen by 80% to $1 per kilogram in 1 decade (“1 1 1”)

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Energy Earthshots Initiative aims to accelerate breakthroughs of more abundant, affordable, and reliable clean energy solutions within the decade.

Achieving the Energy Earthshots will help America tackle the toughest remaining barriers to addressing the climate crisis, and more quickly reach the Biden–Harris Administration’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 while creating good-paying union jobs and growing the economy.
