Meet climate goals faster.
Here's how Hydra can help you foster regional growth and jobs with cleaner transportation.
Close the carbon emissions gap faster
We focus on shifting existing diesel truck engines to co-combust with hydrogen, reducing emissions up to 40% at less cost than diesel to the fleet operator. Displacing diesel consumption in trucks with the clean hydrogen could reduce Canada’s emissions by up to 6.5 Mt in 2030, equivalent to reducing current national freight transport emissions by up to 12%. It's an important option in a sector, heavy duty vehicles, that otherwise has no immediate way to contribute to the remaining reductions required to reach climate targets.
Stimulate regional growth and jobs
Hydra turns an untapped surplus of hydrogen into a valuable clean fuel, providing economic pathways to government’s low carbon and renewable fuel standards. By providing hydrogen fuel cheaper than diesel, Hydra helps fleets increase their margins, making them more competitive and supportive of climate action. Hydra’s Prince George based Hydrogen as a Service Project will result in the creation of over 22 jobs and over $100 million invested in this northern region of B.C. Government can help by being 'technology neutral' in policy making and grant eligibility, recognising this new option to use hydrogen in combustion engines.
Maximize return on taxpayer’s investment
Hydra’s co-combustion of diesel and hydrogen fuels in an internal combustion engine fills a gap in the heavy trucking’s transition to a low carbon economy that is not covered by electric nor Fuel Cell Vehicle technologies. Building the world’s largest hydrogen refuelling station puts B.C. on the map for making hydrogen a reality 15 to 20 years before the world expects. Exporting this born and tested in B.C. solution globally has huge potential to reduce emissions at scale.
