Big questions will be answered today by the announcements:
1) Will there be a small number of large grants, or will DOE turn political and chop the money up into lots of smaller grants?
2) Will blue hydrogen get funded, or only green?
3) Will any of the grants explicitly call out new generation or transmission?
4) How much in the way of natural gas infrastructure will be involved?
If the US Government keeps their promised schedule, we will all know the answers by the time we retire tonight.
