First Hydrogen is looking to spearhead the North American market, having unveiled green hydrogen production plans in Canada and the US.

Initially focusing on Canada, the firm said it plans to leverage the nation’s renewable energy resources and new policy announcements that will create new demand for green hydrogen.

An example of this is the Canadian Government’s recent commitment to recent provide $547.5m of funding to incentivise the use of heavy-duty zero emission vehicles.

gasworld understands that First Hydrogen is working on plans to provide customers with a ‘hydrogen as-a-service’ model, consisting of clean green hydrogen fuel, technologically advanced refuelling stations and zero-emission vehicles.

Rob Campbell, Director and CEO of First Hydrogen Energy, said, “Canada is an ideal place to develop green hydrogen facilities given its abundant renewable energy resources and rapidly improving policy landscape for green hydrogen.”

“Green hydrogen is now globally recognized as an important element needed to help us decarbonise within the massive energy transition we are now entering. First Hydrogen Energy has the people, partners and plans to become a major green hydrogen provider in key regions and has a compelling strategy to offer both green hydrogen and commercial vehicles to use the hydrogen.”

“Project development in the US will quickly follow given the new support for green hydrogen provided at state and federal levels. Now is the time to start building out this important infrastructure”
