Demand for hydrogen and other sources of clean energy is surging as the world transitions to net-zero emissions. Currently one of the world’s top hydrogen producers, Canada boasts a thriving low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen industry that is attracting global investors.
Canadian technology, innovation and fuel cell expertise are driving advances in hydrogen – the only fuel with the potential to completely decarbonize every part of the economy. Supported by an ambitious national hydrogen strategy and world-class research clusters, Canada is the ideal place to invest in hydrogen.
Canada’s hydrogen leadership
Hydrogen: Industry overview
Canada has world-class expertise in R&D and decades of experience in energy, creating the perfect conditions to extend innovation into emerging industries like hydrogen and fuel cells. This power in R&D has led to over half of the world’s deployed fuel cell buses using Canadian-made hydrogen fuel cell powertrain technology.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
Canada is a world leader in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. It was the destination of choice for the world’s first standardized automotive fuel stack production facility, created as a joint venture between Daimler, Ford and Ballard Power systems.
Already among the world’s greenest steelmaking countries, Canada has embraced the potential of hydrogen to completely decarbonize ironmaking and steelmaking processes. In their efforts to meet net-zero carbon goals by 2050, Canadian researchers are investigating the potential of hydrogen as a heat source and an input in the production of green steel.
