Go Electric Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure
British Columbia is a leading developer and test bed for fuel cell products for both the transportation and stationary power markets. The Province of B.C. will continue to help develop a leading hydrogen economy by:
- Investments in education, research & key demonstration projects
- Implementation of fueling stations
Fuel cell vehicle manufacturers have targeted British Columbia as a key market for the rollout of fuel cell vehicles. B.C. is a world-leader in fuel cell technology for transportation, with major automakers and the fuel cell industry investing heavily in research and development in the province.
There are currently two public hydrogen fueling stations operating in the province with four more to be open by the end of 2020.
The Hydrogen Fuelling Infrastructure Program is building on existing hydrogen stations to expand the hydrogen fuelling network in British Columbia, further reducing one of the key barriers to market adoption of hydrogen vehicles: fuelling infrastructure.
By leveraging industry, including automaker investment in fueling infrastructure, funding is being provided towards the construction or upgrade of hydrogen fuelling stations.
The Hydrogen Fuelling Infrastructure Program is managed by the Canadian Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Association.
