Countries around the world are looking to hydrogen as a compelling option to decarbonize the trucking sector and support the build-up of a hydrogen economy that has substantial environmental, economic development, and energy diversification benefits.
This report explores the fit of hydrogen fuel cell electric technology to meet the needs of the heavy-duty vehicle sector. It also assesses the deployment strategies and progress that has been made globally to gain insights that can be applied in a Canadian context.
Hydrogen-powered heavy-duty vehicles have the potential to be part of a zero-emission pathway for Canada. However, the pathway will require coordinated cross-sector visions, commercialization strategies and deployment plans that are dedicated to achieving a critical scale for fleets and hydrogen supply systems.
