Canadian Government supports fuel cell electric vehicle rollout

Taking the country one step closer towards its goal of 100% zero emission passenger vehicle sales by 2040, the Canadian Government has allocated $46,000 to promote the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).

The Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources today (3rd March) awarded the funding to the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) who will lead the initiative.

As part of its efforts to promote hydrogen-powered vehicles, CHFCA will look at advantages such as short refuelling times. Through such promotion, the group hopes to accelerate the adoption of FCEVs, with the help of government and the wider private sector.

Federal funding for the initiative is through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero Emission Vehicle Awareness Initiative. CHFCA is also investing in the project, bringing the total funding to $121,000.
