The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) is hoping to receive valuable input from influential figures in the hydrogen industry regarding the future of the energy source and its infrastructure in the province.

On Monday, the organization announced it would be hosting a workshop early next year which will discuss the status and expected development of hydrogen energy services in BC, to what extent those services will be competitive and appropriate regulations going forward.

The commission says the focus on expanding BC’s hydrogen industry is part of the Hydrogen Strategy and CleanBC Plan devised by the government to cut emissions and transition to cleaner energy systems.

“For British Columbia to meet its CleanBC goals, we must shift how we produce and consume energy. Renewable and low-carbon hydrogen will play a critical role in our sustainable energy future,” said Bruce Ralston, Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation.

According to the province’s Hydrogen Strategy, the energy source can potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions in BC by the equivalent of 7.2 megatonnes of carbon dioxide annually by 2050.

The upcoming workshop will be held on January 20 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., on the 12th floor of Allwest Reporting at Howe Street, downtown Vancouver. The event will be live-streamed here for those interested.

The workshop is also seeking presentations from industry players on production and storage, which includes hydrogen carriers like methanol and ammonia; distribution; and sale to end-use customers, which includes power generation, transportation and heating.
