Canada and Germany are about to sign an agreement to cooperate on the development of hydrogen energy as an alternative to fossil fuels. For Germany the desire is to move away from coal and plans to spend $13 billion. Meanwhile, Canada has a hydrogen plan to create 350,000 new jobs by 2050 and generate a $50 billion export market.

Seems like a win-win if successful, but this type of venture and success coming out of it would no doubt be a many year endeavor-- are you optimistic the cooperation will be fruitful for long enough to see that success come into being, Len?

There are a number of steps still needed to make the cooperative agreement on hydrogen between Canada and Germany work. A key one as a concession to Canada, is Germany's acceptance of blue hydrogen. This would be an interim stage to a move to a mutual cooperative agreement on green hydrogen and its development.
