The Future of Hydrogen in Canada
With billions of dollars being invested into the development of an at-scale, clean hydrogen economy, Canada has all the resources it needs to position itself as a global hydrogen superpower. As hydrogen’s future as a key fuel in the global energy system continues to expand, the Canadian Hydrogen Convention will once again take place in April 2024 in Edmonton, Alberta.
The time to tap into hydrogen’s potential is now - but for that to happen, hydrogen will need to be made scalable in transport, buildings, and electricity production – with the capacity to have 30% of the end-use energy being delivered by 2050. If Canada is to develop a competitive and sustainable hydrogen economy, then it will need to focus on promoting hydrogen as a zero-carbon solution with the lowest possible environmental impact.
As the largest event in Canada showcasing hydrogen as a key enabler to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, the Canadian Hydrogen Convention is the only annual meeting place for energy executives, government officials and Indigenous leaders to convene to build Canada’s low-carbon energy future. This must-attend show will offer a unique perspective for the entire Canadian supply chain to discuss innovations and solutions for low-carbon hydrogen production, storage, utilization, and hydrogen’s future as a key fuel.
Join 100+ exhibiting companies, 200+ expert speakers, 2,500+ conference delegates and over 8,000+ engaged attendees who are pioneering the development of hydrogen products and solutions to diversify Canada’s energy policies and infrastructure.
The world’s energy systems are undergoing a radical transformation driven by the need to mitigate climate change. Development of an at-scale, the clean hydrogen economy is a strategic priority for Canada, needed to diversify the national future energy mix, generate economic benefits and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Canada has played an important role in the development of the growing global hydrogen economy, starting more than a century ago with innovation in hydrogen production technology and four decades ago as pioneers in fuel cell technology. Canada continues to be an R&D and technology leader in the sector.
Under the Paris Agreement, Canada has committed to reducing GHG emissions by 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. It has also announced a target to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, joining 72 other nations in this ambitious pledge. In a net-zero future, Canada’s economy will be powered by electricity and low carbon fuels – with low carbon fuels expected to provide up to 60% or more of our energy needs. As the lowest carbon fuel, hydrogen is essential to decarbonizing the top third of Canada’s most energy intensive and hard-to-abate end-use applications, and there is much work to do to roll out hydrogen at scale domestically. Canada is not alone in seeing hydrogen as a critical part of the solution to combat climate change and improve air quality while driving economic growth in a carbon-constrained world. Countries around the world have developed strategies to inform the optimal supply pathways and end-use applications for hydrogen, as well as to define export strategies.
