In 2021, Canada’s first Hydrogen HUB was launched in the Edmonton Region, the result of an alliance of government, Indigenous, academic and economic development experts who want to see the region become a global leader in alternative fuels. There are more than 25 projects underway which will set Canada apart in the transition to a net-zero economy.

- Edmonton’s energy sector has the brightest mind and best talent with specialized skills to build the future hydrogen economy.
- Edmonton and Alberta have much of the right infrastructure to grow a thriving hydrogen infrastructure.
- First Nations are being included in the early stages of Edmonton’s hydrogen economy.
