Hydrogen powered vehicles are becoming more popular, especially buses in cities, where diesel particulates are choking the population. There is an abundance of clean wind and solar energy that can produce green hydrogen, something that at the moment is not happening.
The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) is a collaborative effort of industry, academia, government agencies, financial organizations and other stakeholders focused on advancing the use of advanced hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and products to help tackle our world’s most critical energy challenges.
Their infographic presentation of the state of the art is superb, extracts of which we feature here. Most countries have a hydrogen and/or fuel cell support group such as this, for example the Scottish SHFCA in the UK. Even though the Canadian Association is promoting Canada, in reality the hydrogen movement is gaining all over the world as a result of every country doing their bit.
aims and objectives of the CHFCA are to champion the Canadian hydrogen and fuel cell sector and accelerate the adoption of our members’ products and services, in Canada and abroad, by:
- Promoting the economic, environmental and societal benefits of hydrogen and fuel cell energy solutions with policy makers to create an enabling environment for their increased adoption;
- Supporting the development of regulations, codes and standards to ensure the safe and widespread application of hydrogen and fuel cell products; and,
Increasing the literacy of hydrogen and fuel cells through relevant communications channels so businesses, investors, media, the general public and other stakeholders understand their relevance and opportunities within the energy sector.
Canada Initiates Development of PEM Fuel Cell Technology by awarding
(the Department of National Defense) Ballard Power Systems a contract to produce a low-cost PEM fuel
cell. The integration of new flow-field designs and membranes enabled world-leading performance to a single PEM fuel cell, leading developers
to believe that PEM fuel cells could one day power a car.
Clean Energy Vehicle Program - CEVforBC
The CEV Hydrogen Fueling and Fleet Program is building on existing hydrogen stations to expand the hydrogen fueling network in British Columbia and support the adoption of FCEVs for commercial and municipal fleets.
The CEV Hydrogen Fueling and Fleet Program is managed by the Canadian Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association
This program is intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of clean energy
vehicles in British Columbia for both their environment and economic benefits. The CEVforBC™ Program vision is to stimulate the market such
that by 2020, 5% of new light duty vehicle purchases in British Columbia are clean energy vehicles.
CHFCA's management team leads the organization consistent with the Board’s direction, including the day-to-day running of the Association. Management brings opportunities, analyses and recommendations forward, and helps keep the Board informed as to sector-related advancements and opportunities influencing the future of hydrogen and fuel cells.
