Hydrogen Optimized leads advancements on Grey-Bruce hydrogen hub

Hydrogen Optimized has announced it will advance the creation of a regional Grey-Bruce hydrogen hub along with more than 25 stakeholder organisations involved.

Alongside Grey County, Bruce County, and the City of Owen Sound, Hydrogen Optimized aims to explore how Grey-Bruce can be established as a leader in clean hydrogen technology, production and use, planning to develop a Hydrogen Strategy for the region in 2024.

Hydrogen Optimized will lead the group, which includes private and public organisations, set to develop a hydrogen hub in Canada.

Potential local end-use applications for the hydrogen hub include fuelling municipal vehicle fleets with clean hydrogen supplied by Hydrogen Optimized, develop and manufacturing large-scale clean hydrogen production systems in Owen Sound, Canada.

Edward Stuart, Vice President Development at Hydrogen Optimized, said, “The participants’ strong interest in this initiative, combined with a diverse and impressive level of expertise, gives me confidence that we can turn this vision into a reality.”

Ian Boddy, Mayor of the City of Owen Sound, added, “The launch of the hub continues to build momentum for Owen Sound’s future economy as we focus on clean energy and nuclear isotopes.”

The creation of hydrogen hubs is part of the Federal Government’s 2020 Hydrogen Strategy, involving the localised development and expansion of new and existing hydrogen supply, infrastructure and applications.

Other projects include the Bear Head project, Edmonton hydrogen hub, Nova Scotia hydrogen hub, and the Alberta hydrogen production hub, amongst others.

Also in attendance was CHFCA representatives, Georgian College, the provincial and federal governments, Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED).

In 2021, Hydrogen Optimized opened a technology and manufacturing facility in Owen Sound, as part of the Grey-Bruce Hydrogen Hub, which is used to refine its RuggedCellä water electrolysis technology.
