HUB Update: Progress and Next Steps to Build a Vibrant Hydrogen Economy in the Edmonton Region
Thursday, February 24, 2022
Speakers: Dr. David Layzell, University of Calgary / The Transition Accelerator Mark Lea-Wilson, Edmonton Region Hydrogen HUB
After launching in April 2021, and with a number of major hydrogen projects announced since, the Edmonton Region Hydrogen HUB has made significant progress towards setting the stage for a strong hydrogen economy in the region. This webinar covers the HUB’s status, progress to date, and plans to further progress efforts to build out the hydrogen value chain. A Q&A session follows.
The Port of Los Angeles, in conjunction with Kenworth Truck Company, Toyota, Shell, and others , recently demonstrated a collaborative zero-emission goods movement project focused on the use of hydrogen fuel cells in heavy-duty trucks for port service. The project exhibited supply chain transport from “Shore to Store” utilizing zero-emission advanced technology. The Shore to Store project is funded with a $41,122,260 grant from the California Air Resources Board and an additional $41,426,612 in matching contributions from project partners. The presentation will discuss the project results and showcase the potential of hydrogen as a zero-emissions fuel platform for heavy-duty goods movement.
This presentation will begin with a high level assessment of the net-zero solutions for Canada’s transportation sector, with a focus on the role that hydrogen could play. A case study will be presented for the transition to net-zero of Alberta’s heavy duty road freight sector.
It’s been almost a year since the Transition Accelerator released Pat Hufnagel-Smith’s report, Assessing the Workforce Required to Advance Canada’s Hydrogen Economy. This webinar take a closer look at the work done since then to ensure that the workforce to enable the region’s future hydrogen economy will be available as it’s needed.
This webinar focuses on using hydrogen-based power trains for heavy-duty Class 8 long-haul freight routes pulling van trailers, including a range of fuel cell battery electric types and internal combustion engines (ICE) based on the diesel cycle.
