Canada launches Hydrogen Alliance, to encourage clean and green fuel
Canada's decarbonization goals and plans to develop a hydrogen economy are set to be bolstered by a new alliance that intends to support federal and provincial hydrogen policies to encourage clean and green fuel.
Led by Hybrixcel, and seeded by GERB Scientific, Canada Hydrogen Alliance (CH2A) will do just that through the promotion of supply chain innovation, manufacturing, and the commercialization of hydrogen-focused technology and hydrogen-powered projects.
On top of that, the alliance will also look to identify specific actions that Canada can undertake to scale the full supply chain for clean hydrogen production, transport, storage, and use, as well as the technology development and infrastructure needs across multiple sectors.
Commenting on the launch, Sara Shahmohammadi, Co-Alliance Lead and Managing Director of GERB Consulting, said, "The CH2A coalition will promote the development, deployment, and commercialization of new hydrogen focused technologies and hydrogen-powered projects add to our country's reputation as a producer and exporter of clean hydrogen to Europe and other regions."
Already one of the top ten hydrogen producers in the world, Canada's role in the global hydrogen economy is a large one, and the country's already launched strategy aims to better such existing role, as well as modernize Canada's energy systems by leveraging Canadian expertise – and CH2A will now play a big part in this.
Collectively, with leading stakeholders and industry supporters, the alliance represents a diverse group of energy companies, project developers, utilities, NGOs, equipment suppliers, and research institutions who are committed to achieving net-zero.
