Major hydrogen hub plans unveiled for Edmonton, Canada

A future where buses, trains, trucks, cars, home heating and farm machinery run on zero emission hydrogen fuel – that’s all part of the new hydrogen hub vision unveiled on Wednesday (14th April) for Edmonton, Canada.

Thought to be Canada’s first hydrogen hub, the vision for Edmonton has been backed by $1.2m in funding from Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD), $600,000 from Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association and $450,000 from the Province of Alberta.

Such funds will help kickstart Edmonton Region’s low-carbon hydrogen economy, ushering in a wave of clean energy jobs and ensuring a strong economic future as the world shifts towards a greener future.

The hub represents an early hydrogen deployment hub as outlined in the Canadian Hydrogen Strategy and will serve as a blueprint of how to accelerate a strong regional hydrogen economy that can be replicated in other regions across the country with low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen.
