Fuel Cells Works, The Next Step in Hydrogen Commercialization Starts May 25th

The latest hydrogen & fuel cell vehicles on display / Industry-leading companies in the expo / Sector coupling for a clean energy transition

Fuel Cells Works, The Next Step in Hydrogen Commercialization Starts May 25thOn May 25-26, the 4th Annual International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Event will take place at the Edmonton Convention Centre. We are excited to announce three important industry stakeholders who will speak in the morning plenary sessions on May 25th. These include Enoch Cree Nation Chief Billy Morin, Vice-Chair of the Edmonton Region Hydrogen Hub, who will discuss Indigenous participation in the clean-energy sector.

The Honourable Rajan Sawhney, Minister of Transportation for the Province of Alberta, will take part in the panel on the Alberta Status Quo and Future Plans on Hydrogen and shared with us that “Hydrogen represents the next great opportunity for Alberta’s economic recovery. The province is positioning itself as international leader in clean hydrogen by diversifying the energy sector, helping reduce emissions and creating jobs.”

And in her new roll as President and CEO of the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, Ivette Vera-Perez is a long-time advocate of hydrogen as an energy carrier. “I am thrilled to lead the CHFCA in its mission to champion the Canadian hydrogen and fuel cell industries. These are critical times for the hydrogen sector, and we must work collaboratively to expand Canada’s leadership position in this space.”

Special exhibits on site: three hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles

Three of the latest Fuel Cell and Hydrogen vehicles will be on site at f-cell Canada 2022. These innovative production vehicles include the Hyzon Class 8, the Toyota Mirai and a Hydra Energy retrofitted Freightliner.

For its first time in Canada, the Hyzon Class 8 commercial truck will be a popular spot in the trade fair. This “Zero Emissions, Zero Compromise” fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) offers similar payloads, performance, and refueling time to diesel, but water vapor is the only by-product. Recently deployed in drayage operations at the Port of Long Beach, this Class 8 has already reduced emissions in commercial transport, one of the hardest-to-abate sectors.

The 2022 Toyota Mirai is a very welcome addition at f-cell Canada 2022. After Toyota Canada’s presentation of the 1st Mirai at f-cell Canada 2019, this 2nd generation of Toyota’s revolutionary hydrogen FCEV brings more to life than ever before. It also offers a range of up to 647 km on a single tank of hydrogen.

The latest addition to the expo line-up is a Hydra Energy retrofitted, dual-combustion Freightliner. Hydra’s hydrogen-conversion is perfect for commercial fleets looking to reduce emissions and costs today with limited risk and no up-front investment. This truck has been graciously offered by Lodgewood Enterprises and currently operates between Prince George and Edmonton.

Trade fair themes continue through the conference

In addition to well-known plenary and keynote sessions, f-cell Canada brings conference participants deeper into current themes. In collaborative “Solution Rooms”, session participants will develop concrete steps to move from strategy and road maps to commercialized business solutions.

For the latest hydrogen cars and trucks, this means that the session titled Enabling Scalable Hydrogen Refueling for FCEVs is of great importance. Speakers for this session come from Ballard, BayoTech, the City of Edmonton, HTEC, and New Flyer & MCI. There will also be a Solution Room Results roundup in which Chairs from the Solution Room sessions will present their findings in a plenary-style interview session. Shannon Halliday, VP, Sales and Marketing at HTEC adds that “We are quite excited to attend f-Cell Canada as it promises to be a highly engaging platform to network and build connections in the hydrogen and fuel cell industry. This industry in Alberta is well-placed for rapid growth and HTEC with its proven success in providing innovative hydrogen solutions as well as building Canada’s first hydrogen refueling station network is uniquely positioned to address the province’s decarbonization goals. Hydrogen’s time is now and we need to rapidly scale and deploy hydrogen technology and infrastructure.”

Dare to Ask sessions will also touch on Heavy Duty vehicles with speakers from the Alberta Motor Transport Association, Hydra Energy, Hyzon Motors, Innovative Hydrogen Solutions Inc., LOOP Energy, and Unilia (Canada) Fuel Cells. These active companies will set the stage with 5-minute business strategy or goal presentations and then participants will lead the conversation with their tough questions.

Tickets are still available for both the conference and trade fair, either online or onsite: www.hyfcell.com/tickets
