Why Alberta

Why Alberta

Alberta, already a world class non-renewable energy hub, offers several unique features that make the production of water sourced net-zero H2 from renewable electricity economically attractive. These include:

  • A Competitive Electric Power Market
    Alberta’s unique competitive electrical generation market allows electricity to be purchased, on an hourly basis, at very economic prices.
  • Strong and Growing Supplies of Renewable Electricity
    Alberta already has significant renewable electricity generation capacity with several thousand MW in production and several thousand more under construction.
  • Strong Regulatory Drivers to Reduce GHG Emissions and Increase the Use of H2
    Alberta’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emission regulations strongly motivate companies to reduce their GHG emissions. At the same time, the Alberta government is on public record as strongly supporting increasing the use of H2 and is actively developing the policies, such as the recent Hydrogen Road Map, needed to ensure that this occurs.
