Tiverton, ON – The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association is pleased to welcome Bruce Power as a new Executive Member

Bruce Power aims to be the first nuclear plant in North America to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2027. Each day, Bruce Power produces 30 percent of Ontario’s electricity and is responsible for the avoidance of about 19 million tonnes of GHGs a year.

Bruce Power Net Zero owns and operates a 9-megawatt renewable energy project located adjacent to Bruce Power. Its purpose is to advance projects that deliver a clean energy mix for the province of Ontario and Canada.

Starting from this position of strength, Bruce Power Net Zero Inc. will leverage investment to achieve Net Zero GHG emissions from the Bruce Power site by 2027 through different pathways, including hydrogen.

Andrew Thiele, Sr. Strategist for Business Strategy at Bruce Power, spoke about nuclear power’s potential in clean hydrogen production and joining the association: “Bruce Power, and the potential for future hydrogen production from nuclear power, was recognized in Ontario’s Low-Carbon Hydrogen Strategy. Non-emitting nuclear generation provides a significant competitive advantage for the Province of Ontario in developing a low-carbon hydrogen economy. By leveraging its innovative work around Project 2030, Bruce Power looks forward to working with the CHFCA to make a hydrogen future enabled by nuclear a reality.”

“The CHFCA is pleased to announce Bruce Power as our newest member,” says Ivette Vera-Perez, President and CEO of the CHFCA. “With a strong commitment to the Ontario Hydrogen Strategy, Bruce Power is uniquely positioned to harness their site’s potential for hydrogen production. We eagerly anticipate working closely with Bruce Power to support the growth of the hydrogen economy in Ontario.

“We welcome Bruce Power as a member of the CHFCA and also as a member of the Hydrogen Ontario provincial affiliate,” says Robert Stasko, Executive Director of Hydrogen Ontario. “As one of the major suppliers of nuclear-generated power in Ontario and in Canada, Bruce Power is ideally positioned to advance the case for hydrogen produced from ‘clean’ zero-emission power. We look forward to their participation in the ongoing effort to de-carbonize the electricity grid, transportation, industry and eventually space heating in our province.”
