Alberta to:

1. Build New Market Demand. Establishing hydrogen demand is needed to build out supply and commercialization pathways.

2. Enable Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS). For Alberta to deploy clean hydrogen into the economy, CCUS infrastructure must be widely available.

3. De-risk Investment. Long-term investment certainty and funding are required as hydrogen is an emerging opportunity with challenging economics.

4. Activate Technology and Innovation. Demonstration projects, research, and innovation are needed to prove and scale up emerging clean hydrogen technologies. Training and development with Alberta’s world-class universities and technical schools are important to support a labour force capable of working within the hydrogen economy.

5. Ensure Regulatory Efficiency, Codes, and Standards to Drive Safety. As the clean hydrogen economy is emerging, a regulatory regime including codes and standards must be inclusive of hydrogen and enshrine a safety-first mindset across the value chain.

6. Lead the Way and Build Alliances. Public-private partnerships and government-to-government relationships, including with Indigenous governments, are essential to advance the hydrogen economy, send coordinated signals to investors, and build public education and acceptance.

7. Pursue Hydrogen Exports. The international community is looking to lock in hydrogen supply agreements now. Alberta must move aggressively to establish market access and close intra-Alberta and hydrogen export gaps in supply chain logistics.
