CHFCA, Ballard Power Systems, Enbridge and FortisBC to participate in CUTRIC annual Low-Carbon Smart Mobility Technology Conference

The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and Ballard Power Systems will be participating in the session titled”The Future Energy Supply Chain for ZEB Fleets: Hydrogen Integration Cross-Canada for Transit Fleets” during CUTRIC’s annual Low-Carbon-Smart Mobility Technology Conference on June 17, 2020.  Representing the CHFCA and Ballard Power Systems are Mark Kirby (President & CEO) and Nicolas Pocard (Director, Marketing), respectively.  Sector companies Enbridge and FortisBC will also be participating as speakers in the session.

The session will discuss how Hydrogen fuel cell electrified buses (FCEBs), coaches and rail vehicles offer the potential for nation-wide job growth in Canada. As the long-time leaders in fuel cell stack innovation and electrolyzer innovation, Canada can boast the oddly negative fact that it has no FCEBs on the roads today. One of the perceived challenges associated with the hydrogen economy in Canada is the assumption of an undeveloped supply chain. Panellists will discuss how that is no longer the case. From British Columbia to the Maritimes, hydrogen production is alive and can be scaled rapidly to meet the zero-emissions bus (ZEB) needs of transit and regional coach networks today.
