Hydrogen Production Opportunities in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland
Thursday, January 19, 2023
Presenter: Mark Plamondon, Executive Director, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association
Moderator: Kelsey Brooks, Policy Analyst, Natural Resources Canada
Join Mark Plamondon of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association to learn more about Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, one of the world’s most attractive locations for chemical, petrochemical, oil, and gas investment, located near Edmonton. As Canada’s largest hydrocarbon processing region, the Industrial Heartland underpins industrial investment with carbon capture and storage infrastructure, the world’s largest CO2 pipeline, advanced infrastructure, and ground-breaking innovation. With $45+ billion in existing capital investment and more than 40 companies, the AIH provides fuels, fertilizers, power, petrochemicals and more to provincial and global consumers.
Learn about hydrogen production within the Industrial Heartland and find out how this 582 square-kilometer region is creating opportunities for decarbonization pathways.
Using the latest independent research and analysis, Dr. David Layzell provides a solid foundation for thinking strategically about hydrogen and its uses—the kind of foundation that's essential to any productive conversation about hydrogen's role in our clean-energy future.
The cost and reliability of energy transport and storage infrastructure is a crucial issue in the energy industry, with implications for energy access, affordability, the environment and public safety. Australia’s GPA Engineering analysed the cost of energy transport and storage across a range of different gas and electricity infrastructure options and found that, across a wide range of scenarios, newly constructed pipelines are more cost-effective than newly constructed electricity transmission infrastructure at transporting energy by a wide margin.
