Ontario companies power forward on hydrogen


Ontario Power Generation’s (OPG) wholly-owned subsidiary Atura Power islaying the groundwork for low-carbon hydrogen production and the creation of regional hubs in Ontario by partnering with Ontario-headquartered global engineering, project management, and professional services firm Hatch on a feasibility study for several hydrogen demonstration projects.

Development of a hydrogen economy using Ontario’s clean electricity to help meet climate change goals hinges in part on creating hydrogen hubs to co-locate hydrogen producers, infrastructure and users. This study looks at the feasibility of demonstration projects to progress hydrogen hubs at a variety of locations in Ontario anchored around electricity assets.

Low-carbon hydrogen has the potential to reduce or offset emissions in a variety of applications, including:

  • to power fuel cells in vehicles, which could help replace diesel engines in the heavy-duty and long-haul trucking industry
  • as an energy substitute for high-emitting industrial applications such as steel- and cement-making
  • by blending hydrogen with natural gas to reduce carbon impact.

Atura Power has ownership for the development of this new hydrogen-related business to progress this clean fuel solution from concept to practical, every-day use.

As an enabler of clean energy, Atura Power is positioned to help build the hydrogen economy to assist in OPG and its subsidiary companies’ goal of being a net-zero carbon company by 2040 and acting as a catalyst for efficient, economy-wide decarbonization by 2050, as promised in OPG’s Climate Change Plan.
