  • pr-locationHall D

Canada is one of the top 10 hydrogen producers in the world and consistently ranks among the leading destinations for hydrogen-related foreign investment with an estimated 67 billion in investment over the past five years alone. However, with the recent 7-billion-dollar investment into the hydrogen sector from the U.S. government, and other emerging markets in Europe, Asia, and Africa, what steps will need to be taken for Canada to continue to grow its hydrogen economy?

Attendee insights
Delegates will learn about federal grant programs such as the Strategic Innovation Fund, provincial incentives that are available, and other attractive options for hydrogen investors. The panel will outline the strategies needed to attract more investment and discuss how coordinated efforts from the government and private sector can lead to greater investment by providing more clarity and awareness.

Fuelling the Future: How Advancements in Hydrogen will Reshape the Future of Industrial Vehicles

  • pr-alarm9:15 AM - 10:00 AM
  • pr-locationHall D

Transport accounts for around one-fifth of global CO₂ emissions with three-quarters of the emissions generated derived from road transport in the form of private passenger vehicles such as cars and buses. Electric vehicles (EVs) have helped lower global emissions. However, limited driving ranges, higher costs, and the impacts on the electrical grid have limited their adoption. Recent advancements in hydrogen technology have helped power a new generation of vehicles.

Attendee insights
Understand hydrogen’s role in decarbonizing industrial vehicles, examine which vehicles are best suited for hydrogen, and assess how long mass-scale adoption will take and strategies to expedite.

Aviation accounts for approximately 2.5% of the world’s CO2 emissions and has been a difficult sector to decarbonize as few proven solutions exist. Hydrogen, particularly hydrogen fuel cells, are becoming a viable solution as the airline industry transitions towards an emission-free future. However, a recent shift is happening where business fleet operations are now looking at decarbonizing their entire operations including aircraft ground service vehicles,
heavy-duty vehicles for freight, cargo, and rail.

Attendee insights
Delegates will discover hydrogen’s potential as a fuel source for aviation and other heavy-vehicles, and when hydrogen is likely to be widely available for commercial use. The panelists will share strategies for implementation and will explore what measures need to occur for more significant hydrogen fuel cell uptake.

As Canada’s hydrogen industry expands, more professionals from all backgrounds will be required to address the anticipated shortage of labour. However, many of the essential occupations in the hydrogen value chain including engineers, technicians, technologists, and tradespersons are male dominated. Newer procurement models require organizations to disclose equity representation of equity groups and the steps they have taken to achieve full representation. Companies that fail to meet these standards may find themselves left out of Canada’s hydrogen economy.

Attendee insights
This panel will showcase female leaders in Canadian hydrogen and share some of the professional opportunities available for women in the hydrogen ecosystem. Panelists will share strategies for increasing employment diversity in Canadian hydrogen and the steps that need to happen to attract and retain more female employees.
