News and Opinion

Coverage of hydrogen fuels since July 22, 2023.

B.C. clean-tech firm Greenlight Innovation secures $1.1M to develop energy storage devices

"...The firm — located at 8339 Eastlake Dr. — tests equipment that develops and manufactures hydrogen fuel cells, electrolysers and energy storage devices..."


Oil and gas well drillers want federal funding to help industry decarbonize

"...The drilling sector's emissions reduction efforts have not been as high-profile as those of the oilsands industry, which is proposing a $16. 5-billion carbon capture and storage project in northern Alberta that it says will help it reach net-zero emissions from production by 2050. But Scholz said there are many things oil and gas drillers can do to lower their carbon footprint, from rig electrification to hydrogen fuel blending to investing in battery energy storage systems for oil well drilling sites..."


Abbotsford facility to help pilot hydrogen commercial trucks amid EV boom

"...“Hydrogen fuel cell electric light-duty vehicles are already being adopted by fleets in B. C. , and in the near term greater opportunities for hydrogen vehicle deployment are opening up in the medium-, heavy-duty and off-road vehicle sectors,” reads a report outlining the province’s hydrogen strategy..."


HTEC to trial commercial hydrogen trucks

"...Before long-haul fleet operators run out and buy the latest, untested hydrogen fuel cell truck, they may want to wait to see what comes of a pilot project that HTEC will be running on various hydrogen powered commercial trucks..."


Introducing the CHFCA’s new Chair and Vice-Chair

"...power and clean energy industry. Beth helps businesses and markets grow through the development and management of client, stakeholder and policy strategies that drive increased brand awareness, market access and growth. Beth is an active industry member and has been a board member for Canadian Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association for the last three years..."


What U.S. regional hydrogen hubs mean for British Columbia

"...Fortescue’s Coyote project is larger. According to a project description filed recently with the BC Environmental Assessment Office, the $2 billion project would produce 140,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually and 700,000 tonnes of green ammonia for export to Asia. (Hydrogen is difficult to transport, so it is easier to combine it with nitrogen to turn it into ammonia, which can then either be decomposed back into hydrogen and nitrogen, or burned as a zero-emission fuel..."


Is There a Sustainable Solution to the Lithium-Battery Shortage?

"...Wilkinson says EV makers should consider other types of batteries. Hydrogen fuel cells, for example, have a higher energy-to-weight ratio, which gives them a greater range, but they are expensive to produce. “Heavy-duty trucks could use hydrogen fuel cells, and that would free up lithium batteries to be primarily used for passenger vehicles,” he says..."


Todd Sayers: Why non-dilutive funding is revolutionizing B.C.’s cleantech sector

"...The diversity of these recipients is remarkable. Takachar, for instance, is making biomass-based chemicals and biofuels economically feasible by prototyping a small-scale, portable biomass conversion unit on tractors and pick-up trucks to process raw biomass on-site in remote communities. Invinity is accelerating the adoption of renewable energy by delivering vanadium flow battery storage for electrical grids worldwide, while HTEC is building hydrogen fueling stations that can withstand extreme weather conditions..."


Rocky Mountain House backs electric vehicle charging initiative

"...To get the project rolling, eight communities banded together and invested $40,000 to create an electric vehicle (EV) charging network strategy. Another $30,000 was lined up through Energy Futures Lab, an Alberta-based organization focused on the transition to a net-zero economy..."


Decarbonizing Freight: Opportunities and Obstacles for Clean Fuels

"...While electrifying long-haul freight is more challenging, battery electric vehicles may still be the best option for trucking. Multi-megawatt charging stations at truck stops with battery designs that enable their use may be less of a challenge than hydrogen fueling and will very likely remain cheaper. Innovation to increase the energy density of batteries and/or autonomous trucks could lead to battery electric trucks dominating this use case..."


Shift to hydrogen at Port of Vancouver led by companies with Chilliwack roots

"...“The HEG, combined with a lithium battery and our energy regeneration technology, provides DP World with class-leading energy efficiency. We are excited to see this technology come to life, and together with the team at H2 Portable, explore other future applications. ”..."


North America's first hydrogen-powered train tested on Quebec rails

"...The train is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, using green hydrogen produced by Harnois Énergies, and emits only water vapour while it runs. It's been in commercial service in Germany since 2018, but this is its North American debut, and Alstom claims the train is the first of its kind on the continent. Engineers with the Train de Charlevoix were sent to Germany last winter to learn how to operate it..."
