CALGARY – The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and Decentralised Energy Canada (DEC) are pleased to announce a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

The agreement will stimulate cooperation between the CHFCA and DEC in promoting the growth, commercialization, and adoption of hydrogen and fuel cells and decentralised energy technologies.

The MOU highlights key areas of collaboration such as exchange of market intelligence, research and development, and development of joint business opportunities.



Ivette Vera-Perez, President and CEO, CHFCA:

“We are delighted to see this level of federal-regional partnership. Canada has the potential to be an economic leader in the global shift towards a low-carbon future, and the hydrogen sector is a perfect enabler to achieve this goal. We will work collaboratively with all levels of government, and across industries, to help achieve our decarbonization goals, while building a thriving economy.”

“Hydrogen has important applications in decentralised energy systems as an energy carrier and energy storage solution. It will play a critical role in achieving our transition to net zero energy. This partnership between DEC and CHFCA provides our members with access to an expanded network of energy innovators and will combine our knowledge in an effort to support industry and government as we navigate the many changes affecting the way we generate and consume energy.”
