Carbon neutral. Future positive.
The Edmonton region is attracting investment in all areas of the global hydrogen economy—production, innovation, hydrogen utilization technologies, and research–in part because of its unique ability to produce low-cost, net-zero hydrogen energy on a global scale.
We’re one of the lowest cost producers of hydrogen in the world and we’ve been doing it for decades.
Our abilities in hydrogen production and related technologies are attracting investment from industries that require a high amount of heat and power that are difficult to electrify. Glass, steel, petrochemicals and concrete—all of these industries can use hydrogen to meet their carbon commitments.
The Edmonton Region Hydrogen HUB is Canada’s first and largest hydrogen hub, positioning our region at the center of Canada’s emerging hydrogen economy and driving demand for hydrogen across a variety of sectors. Government, Indigenous, academic, industry, and economic development leaders are working together to kickstart the region’s hydrogen economy and ensure long-term economic competitiveness.
We also have the workforce to enable the growth of the hydrogen industry in Canada. We have a young, educated workforce with experience in executing large scale projects, and we have more engineers per capita than any other Canadian province.
The Edmonton region is attracting investment in all areas of the hydrogen economy. Our local hydrogen companies are looking for international innovators to invest and partner within the Edmonton Metropolitan Region — the most well-equipped location for this endeavour.
If you’re looking for opportunities to help drive a net-zero future, the Edmonton region is an exciting place to invest.
We’re creating Canada’s roadmap to a net-zero future. The ultimate goal of this challenge is to have 5,000 hydrogen or dual-fuel hydrogen vehicles on the road in Western Canada within five years. And if we prove that it works here, the same model can be used nationwide. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make an impact on the global energy transition.
“By being a first mover and investing in this innovative landmark project, we are paving the way for hydrogen from Edmonton to meet industrial and transportation needs throughout western Canada.”
