Towards a Fuel Hydrogen Economy in the Calgary Region
Volume 5, Issue 1
By David Layzell, Dinara Millington, and Robert Lee
The Calgary Region is superbly positioned to take a leadership role in transitioning to a vibrant hydrogen economy that can position Calgary, Alberta and Canada as a key part of the climate change solution. The region has large potential markets for fuel hydrogen and the resources and workforce to produce and make cost-effective, very low GHG hydrogen available where it is needed.
This report explores the Calgary region’s potential to establish a hydrogen hub and link with other hubs to create transportation corridors, providing recommendations for how Calgary can take advantage of the opportunity. Such a start can rapidly grow in scale and then expand to hydrogen use for heat and power generation, attracting new industries.
