Hydrogen: Industry overview

6 reasons to invest in Canada’s hydrogen industry

Hydrogen R&D

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.
