SSJ Spring Speaker Series: Hydrogen – an Atlantic Canadian Perspective

April 20, 2022 12:00 am


The role of low-carbon hydrogen in the decarbonization of energy systems is becoming clear but understanding hydrogen’s commercial applications and emerging economic development opportunities are only now coming into focus. This talk explores the role that hydrogen might play in Atlantic Canada’s energy system transition. In addition, the talk will provide an overview of the Atlantic Hydrogen Alliance and its priorities for the upcoming year.
