For the third time, we are bringing the entire hydrogen value chain together to explore innovations and solutions that are accelerating Canada's transition to a net-zero future and demonstrating our region's leadership in the global hydrogen economy. We will need many pathways to decarbonize Canada's energy consumption-hydrogen will play a key role in meeting Alberta and Canada's net-zero goals by 2050. Alberta already produces two-thirds of Canada's hydrogen, with most of it coming from the Edmonton region. We have the infrastructure, talent, and resources needed to decarbonize industry with the world's most abundant, and under-utilized resource. Canada's path to net-zero runs through the Edmonton region," said Malcolm Bruce, CEO, Edmonton Global.
