Recommendations: A pillared approach
These recommendations have been developed to reflect the input and views expressed in wide consultation with stakeholders and partners. The recommendations will inform the development of concrete actions by all players needed to lay the foundation for and support the growth of diversification and expansion of the hydrogen ecosystem in Canada. Recommendations have been proposed across 8 key pillars.
Use existing and new partnerships strategically to collaborate and map the future of hydrogen in Canada.
De-risking of investments
Establish funding programs, long-term policies, and business models to encourage industry and governments to invest in growing the hydrogen economy.
Take action to support further R&D, develop research priorities, and foster collaboration between stakeholders to ensure Canada maintains its competitive edge and global leadership in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.
Codes and standards
Modernize existing codes and standards to keep pace with this rapidly changing industry and remove barriers to deployment, domestically and internationally.
Enabling policies and regulations
Ensure hydrogen is integrated into clean energy road maps and strategies at all levels of government to incentivize its application.
Lead at the national level to ensure individuals and communities are aware of hydrogen’s safety, uses, and benefits during a time of rapidly expanding technologies.
Implement a multi-level, collaborative government effort to facilitate the development of regional hydrogen blueprints to identify specific opportunities and plans for hydrogen production and end use.
Work with our international partners to ensure the global push for clean fuels includes hydrogen so Canadian industries thrive at home and abroad.
