History of renewable energy in Québec – Part 3 : Renewal

In Québec, almost 100% of the energy produced comes from renewable energy1. This has been made possible by the particular geography of the province, but also thanks to strong political choices dating back to the 1960s. The thousands of rivers, the huge boreal forests and the great wind capacity found in Québec have largely contributed to the ecological…

Fuel cell technology : A simple solution for a complex equation

Fuel cell technology : A simple solution for a complex equation

How to extend the access to mobility and energy to a greater part of our population while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions? This equation seems hard to solve without an alternative solution that is green hydrogen, (i.e., hydrogen produced with a hundred-percent decarbonized process). This article deals with a central element for the use of green hydrogen : the fuel cell. What is it ? First, what is a fuel…

Green hydrogen for trucking industry : a breath of fresh air!

Decarbonizing the trucking industry and the intensive transport industry  In 2020, the study on the techno-economic potential of the development of Québec’s hydrogen sector and its potential for the energy transition (TEQ), reports that the major part of Québec’s CO2 emissions come from the transport sector. With 43% of the emissions, the transport industry is responsible for 34 MT released per year. Half…

Hydrogen is gaining momentum

Hydrogen is gaining momentum

Last week, we had great news to announce. This week, planet hydrogen did the work for us. News from the four corners of the globe.  Indeed, Hyundai just broke the range record for a hydrogen-powered car. Indeed, their Hyundai Nexo, travelled a distance of 778 kilometres without refuelling. It’s incredible! In addition, there was still about 49 kilometres of range in the tank. This showcases…
