2022: Low-Carbon Hydrogen Strategy unveiled by Ontario

On April 7, 2022, the Ontario government released its Low-Carbon Hydrogen Strategy to accelerate the development of the low-carbon hydrogen economy in the province to create jobs, attract investment and reduce emissions.  The strategy leverages the province’s strengths, including a highly skilled workforce, clean and affordable electricity, existing storage and pipeline infrastructure, and an innovative industrial sector that is poised to collaborate on hydrogen. Aimed to establish Ontario as the clean manufacturing and transportation hub of the future, the Strategy includes a number of proposed actions to enable hydrogen production and expand the burgeoning low-carbon hydrogen economy, including launching innovative projects, identifying hydrogen hubs and proposing related changes to regulatory frameworks and policies.
