  • What the expectations are
  • Next steps to positioning Canada as a top-three global supplier of hydrogen to international markets.

Stakeholders from key export markets shared their perspectives on:

  • Hydrogen demand profile (domestic production, imports)

  • Hydrogen form (e.g. NH3/ LH2 / Other)
  • Production Expectations (e.g. GHG intensity measurement)
  • Timelines
  • Cost Expectations
  • Commitment Period
