This white paper was prepared by The Transition Accelerator to provide techno-economic and environmental details, as well as a pan-Canadian perspective for the work of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Hydrogen Task Force in assessing the ability of the Alberta Industrial Heartland region to contribute to the transition to a net-zero energy future. The Task Force report (to be released in Fall 2020) and this study are provided to inform decision makers in industry and government regarding the nature of a future, net-zero energy system and the important role for hydrogen in the energy transition.
