Hydrogen project will create jobs, fuel B.C.’s clean economy, reduce emissions

May 27, 2024

Hundreds of new jobs in the clean economy will be coming to B.C. as the Province supports a first-of-its-kind project to accelerate the build-out of hydrogen production and a provincewide refuelling network.

HTEC has announced its H2 Gateway project aimed at reducing emissions in the transportation sector. HTEC plans to build and operate an interprovincial network of as many as 20 hydrogen refuelling stations (with 18 in B.C.) to support the deployment of fuel-cell vehicles and advance greener transportation solutions. The refuelling stations will be supported by three new electrolyzers in Burnaby, Nanaimo and Prince George, and a new facility that liquefies 15 tonnes per day of byproduct hydrogen in North Vancouver.

The H2 Gateway projects are estimated to create more than 280 full-time jobs to build, operate and support the hydrogen infrastructure. H2 Gateway will also support the development of regional hydrogen hubs across the province where production and use are co-located to lower costs and maximize benefits for local economies.
