The federal and Alberta government have signed an agreement to build a $1.3 billion hydrogen plant in Edmonton. This plant will be running by 2024 and would produce hydrogen-fuelled electricity and liquid hydrogen for transportation.

Using hydrogen instead of fossil fuels is a significant and efficient way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“This is a very concrete step toward one of the first facilities that will help make Canada, Alberta, and Edmonton Global leaders in growing the clean hydrogen sector,” said Francois-Philippe Champagne, minister of innovation, science and industry of Canada.
