  • Renewable Power: BC’s hydroelectric dams are a consistent source of renewable power generation, which is advantageous for electrolytic hydrogen production. 
  • Location: Metro Vancouver is strategically located on Canada’s southwestern coast and home to the largest port in Canada which facilitates major trade routes to Asia and the west coast of North and South America. 
  • Policy Landscape: Local and provincial governments in BC have shown strong political support for hydrogen, including establishing the BC Hydrogen Strategy, CleanBC Roadmap, legislation such as the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, and the BC Energy Regulator. Alongside the federal government’s support of hydrogen, this creates a favourable policy landscape at all levels of government. 
  • Hydrogen Cluster: There is already an established hydrogen cluster in the region with promising growth potential, including large industry leaders like Ballard Power Systems, multiple start-ups with innovative technologies, hydrogen-focused academic research, investor knowledge, government support, and technological development.

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
