100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

The Government of Canada has initiated a series of university-industry partnerships which includes a project to further develop fuel cell technology for buses. Through the Automotive Partnership Canada (APC), in conjunction with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), $85 million is available for a range of projects aimed at enhancing the Canadian automotive industry.

APC and NSERC are providing $4.05 million to project partners Simon Fraser University and Ballard Power Systems to develop the next generation of fuel cell buses. The project aims to increase overall stack durability and lifetime without negatively impacting the cost or performance of the buses.
