The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) is pleased to announce that FortisBC Energy Inc. has joined as an Executive Member.
FortisBC Energy Inc. (FEI) is a leading energy solution provider supplying over 1.1 million natural gas and electricity customers including residential, commercial, and industrial customers in over 135 communities in British Columbia. FEI delivers 21% of all energy supplied in British Columbia, including supplying approximately 95% of the natural gas customers in the Province. FEI is committed to driving innovation and was the first utility in North America to offer Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), also called biomethane, to its customers. To further enhance its sustainable energy portfolio, FEI is investigating the potential to deliver renewably sourced hydrogen and methanized hydrogen (which is a synthetic equivalent to natural gas methane) via its natural gas delivery system. FEI is also assessing opportunities that could support this endeavor including power-to-gas technologies that bridge the traditional electrical power grid and natural gas delivery system. Integrating renewable energy resources in this way could provide a green source of hydrogen that would enable FEI to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the combustion of natural gas.
