Alberta invests $57 million in hydrogen technology

EDMONTON – The Alberta government is investing $57 million to develop 28 new hydrogen technologies.

The funding is through the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction program to support projects led by industry, researchers and municipalities working on hydrogen production, transmission and distribution, storage, and transportation, as well as expanding hydrogen use in communities and in heavy-duty transportation, natural gas production, chemicals and other industries.

The 28 successful projects are the result of Emissions Reduction Alberta’s Accelerating Hydrogen Challenge, delivered in co-ordination with a parallel funding competition from Alberta Innovates’ Hydrogen Centre of Excellence, a release said.

Among the projects included in the funding are:

  • $7 million to help Linde Canada install hydrogen production, distribution and refuelling infrastructure in Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan to supply hydrogen for Edmonton Transit;
  • $7 million to help NuVista Energy demonstrate a technology that converts natural gas feedstock into low-carbon hydrogen and solid carbon;
  • $6.9 million to help the City of Edmonton demonstrate a methanol-to-hydrogen fuelling system while integrating two hydrogen vehicle technologies to test fueling and vehicle performance;
  • $5 million to help Strathcona County install a hydrogen-fuelled system to provide heat and power at the Millennium Place Recreation Centre;
  • $2.2 million to help the City of Calgary pilot and test hydrogen vehicles and equipment to determine suitability and use in Alberta;
  • $1.9 million to help the Pipeline Research Council test materials for retrofitting existing natural gas pipelines for hydrogen; and

$1.7 million to help Edmonton International Airport explore hydrogen’s use in aviation.
