Building Minimum Viable Corridors for Hydrogen-Powered Trucking

Thursday, April 18, 2024

11am – 12pm MT

About the webinar:

Canada has been struggling with accelerating the use of hydrogen in heavy trucking. Some useful pilots have been launched, but there is no clear, structured framework on how to move past pilots and get to an economically self-sustaining hydrogen value-chain for long-haul heavy-duty transportation.

The Minimum Viable Corridor (MVC) framework was developed to show the transition pathway steps needed to deliver self-sustaining trucking corridors across Canada. The MVC model moves past a total cost of ownership approach, synthesizing the latest independent techno-economic analyses and validation from engagements with over 50 stakeholders along the full value chain to present a blueprint for advancing corridors to economic viability.

The MVC provides a structured framework to align stakeholder interests, presenting the minimum conditions necessary for success and calibration of value chain elements like the required size of fuelling stations, options for number and types of trucks, distances travelled, cost and financing options, and more. Join us on April 18 for an introduction to this important framework.

Hydrogen and the Decarbonization of Steel Production in Canada

To convert iron ore into the iron required for steelmaking, the Canadian steel industry primarily relies on coal, coke, and natural gas in large blast furnaces. Currently responsible for approximately 2% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, the steel industry is committed to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, but reaching those goals will require innovative new approaches to steel production.
