FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Toronto, ON – Today, the International Green Hydrogen Alliance (IGH2A) announced it is bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders under a shared vision to support federal and provincial hydrogen policies that promote renewable hydrogen as a key pathway to achieve global decarbonization objectives while also accelerating the hydrogen economy. The Alliance (IGH2A) will be the country’s home of hydrogen economy collaboration.
Renewable hydrogen has the ability to accelerate decarbonization across all sectors of our economy, as well as transition existing – and create new – skilled, high wage jobs needed to support the clean energy transition. In addition to the wide range of market applications and potential for significant future demand, clean hydrogen can be produced from a variety of energy sources, used as a replacement fuel or feedstock in several industries, store energy over long periods of time, as well as move and deliver energy to where it is needed, making it a highly versatile, clean energy resource.
To catalyze a green hydrogen industry in Canada and globally, the alliance is identifying specific actions that Canada can undertake to scale the full supply chain for clean hydrogen production, transport, storage, and use, as well as the technology development and infrastructure needs across multiple sectors. With the Canada lagging behind other nations in scaling up the supply chain for clean hydrogen, the IGH2A aims to support policies that promote green hydrogen.
“The IGH2A coalition will promote the development, deployment, and commercialization of new hydrogen focused technologies and hydrogen powered projects add to our country’s reputation as a producer and exporter of clean hydrogen to Europe and other regions.”, said Shahmohammadi, executive officer of Hybrixcel, (co-alliance lead).
