We're powering the shift to clean transportation - at speed and scale.
Hydra is the Vancouver-based leader in Hydrogen-as-a-Service. We bring the unique expertise, economic model and partnerships to the intersection of hydrogen fuel technology and capture.
Hydrogen: The what & why
Transforming surplus hydrogen into an accessible and affordable clean fuel.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the Universe. It’s found in nature but also vented (and wasted) by chemical plants. This means there is almost an infinite surplus to be captured and put to good use.
Approved by NASA. If Hydrogen is used as rocket fuel to send astronauts to space, then it’s safe to power cleaner transportation here on earth. Not to mention powerful.
Hydrogen has the highest energy density of all fuels, 150 times higher than gasoline.
Why commercial truck fleets?
Large truck fleets are the among the biggest contributors to Green House Gas emissions. No realistic or reliable clean-fuel solutions are available for them - to date. Which is why they hold the largest potential and why we work with them.
From 1990-2014 , CO2e doubled from 28 to 56 megatonnes.

By 2030, GHG emissions from freight will surpass annual emissions from passenger transport.
