First Hydrogen has congratulated Canadian Prime Minister Mr Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Mr Olaf Scholz on the monumental hydrogen alliance formed between Canada and Germany. The Company has expanded its Green Hydrogen production plans to North America, initial focus will be on Canada with its enormous resources of renewable energy (hydropower, solar and wind) that can be used to produce green hydrogen yielding no carbon emissions. Canada has identified the domestic deployment of hydrogen as a key to meeting its climate change commitments. On 6 July 2022, the Canadian government released its Clean Fuel Standard, which will aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate the use of clean technologies and fuels. It was followed up with an announcement of funding for Medium-and-Heavy-Duty Zero-Emission Vehicles, the iMHZEV program will provide CAD 547.5 million of funding over four years. This new policy commitment will aid in creating new demand for commercial vehicles using green hydrogen.First Hydrogen Energy is now commencing the development of four key green hydrogen production facilities in the UK following positive progress to date. The North American expansion is part of First Hydrogen's strategy to develop green hydrogen production in regions with strong policy support for green hydrogen and/or abundant renewable energy sources. The green hydrogen produced will be distributed nearby the production sites thereby minimizing distribution costs and also providing climate change, pollution reduction and energy resiliency benefits within the green hydrogen site's region.
