Industry Information

Canada Gov: Profile Of Canadian Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Industry
Industry Canada, the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) have collaborated to provide an extensive profile of the Canadian hydrogen and fuel cell sector. The 2012 Sector Profile follows a similar format to the previous eight editions and provides industry insight on Canada’s hydrogen and fuel cell sector for policy makers, investors and other stakeholders. The research adds value to business strategies, investment decisions, and the overall expertise across our country. (PDF)

Canadian Centre for Housing Technology will be hosting the first residential fuel cell in Canada as part of a collaboration with Fuel Cell Technologies of Ontario.
Industry Sectors

CHFCA: Canadian Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Association
CHFCA was formed in January of 2009 as a result of a merger between Canadian Hydrogen Association (CHA) and Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Canada (H2FCC). The merger unites members of the two former associations to create a vibrant, influential association that represents the majority of stakeholders in the Canadian hydrogen and fuel cell sector. Members cover most types of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, components, systems supply and integration, fuelling systems, fuel storage, and engineering and financial services.

CHFCA: Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association
Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) is a national, non-profit association that supports Canadian corporations, governments and educational institutions that are developing, demonstrating and deploying hydrogen and fuel cell products and services in Canada.

FCHEA: US Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association
On October 28, 2010 the US Fuel Cell Council and the National Hydrogen Association announced a merger between the two organizations. The merger of the industry's leading advocacy organizations will deliver an integrated strategy to the industry and a singular message to stake holders: fuel cells and hydrogen are integral components of our clean energy portfolio.

US DOE: Fuel Cell Technologies Office
US Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technologies Office is a comprehensive portfolio of activities that address the full range of barriers facing the development and deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells with the ultimate goals of decreasing dependence on oil, reducing carbon emissions, and enabling clean, reliable power generation.

Issues & Performance

CARE: Overview On How Most Hydrogen Does Not Eliminate Emissions
Canadian Association for Renewable Energy provides articles and reports suggesting most hydrogen does not eliminate the emission of GHG pollutants that are connected with climate change. They argue that, only when an eligible renewable energy technology is used for electrolysis or non-hydrocarbon derivation process, can the resulting hydrogen be considered as renewable or the fuel cell considered as clean.

Reason Foundation: Hydrogen Cars Don't Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Reason Foundation article explains how switching from gasoline-powered cars to hydrogen cars would not reduce greenhouse gas emissions nor would it eliminate American dependence on the Middle East energy supplies.
