On August 23, in Stephenville, NL Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz signed The Canada-Germany Hydrogen Alliance. The agreement formalizes collaborative efforts by Canada and Germany to advance renewable hydrogen technologies and supports cooperation between the two countries in expanding the global hydrogen economy. This agreement will kickstart renewable hydrogen development and is an exciting first step toward establishing a renewable hydrogen economy here in Atlantic Canada.

The Atlantic Hydrogen Alliance was pleased to support this important event as a co-organizer of the German-Canadian Atlantic Renewable Hydrogen Expo and fully supports the signing of the agreement between Canada and Germany. The Atlantic Hydrogen Alliance has close to 60 members from across the Atlantic region and beyond who believe renewable hydrogen will be an essential part of the energy transition needed to achieve net-zero emissions in the Atlantic provinces by 2050 and will lead to economic and climate benefits here in Atlantic Canada, and globally. Renewable hydrogen will be important in helping to decarbonize sectors in Atlantic Canada that will be difficult to abate, such as heavy transportation, the marine sector, and industrial processes.
