June 26-27 Hydrogen For Sustainable Northern Communities Forum – North Bay

BECOME A HBC MEMBER! It’s easy. It’s affordable. It’s important for the work we need to do.

Hydrogen For Sustainable Northern Communities Forum, June 26-27

Co-hosted by Hydrogen Business Council (HBC) and Invest North Bay Development Corporation, this event is where you can learn about the emerging solutions that hydrogen offers for transportation, energy storage, and industrial applications – all in the context of Northern needs and opportunities.

A comprehensive slate of speakers will share their knowledge as they represent northern communities, active pilot projects, fuel cell and hydrogen generation technologies, and multi-level government involvements.

Space is limited at our Canadore College venue so don’t delay! View the program and register today for a full day of learning and sharing….and lunch of course. Once registered, you will receive updates to the program, and other information, as they become available.

Why Now?

In 2016, the Province of Ontario recently announced its $8.3 billion government Climate go trainAction Plan to reduce CO2 emissions under a cap and trade system. Hydrogen solutions are being developed and implemented, close to home, that offer compelling capabilities to help enable this de-carbonization agenda.  Very importantly, these solutions are ready to advance the Action Plan’s call for hydrogen vehicles to be part of the electric vehicle mix in Ontario, aimed at reducing the use of fossil fuels in various transportation applications on our roads and rails.


Presentations from our previous event on November 1, 2016, are available for downloading below:



Be an Active Part of Ontario’s Hydrogen Community

HBC is positioning to be instrumental in:

  • Assisting potential adopters understand if they have a business case for hydrogen adoption – in turn helping them present the case to corporate decision-makers,
  • Targeted or general advocacy for hydrogen as a climate change solution and for policy and program instruments that enable users to adopt hydrogen technologies in ways that make sense, and
  • Education of end-users and their stakeholders, including public awareness-raising.

We have already had productive forays into these areas (see Brad’s Nov. 1 presentation above) but there is much to do through our evolving strategic plan. As every plan requires resources, HBC has established an affordable basic membership fee structure that is commensurate with the services that we are equipped to offer at this time, with plans for more in the future.become a member

Who We Are

Hydrogen Business Council of Canada is a like-minded community dedicated to bringing knowledge and opportunities to the minds and hands of those who can apply and realize the benefits of hydrogen technology in their work and their lives.

Climate change reduction is at the heart of our initiative. We believe that a practical and scalable pathway for sustainability needs to include informed planning and investment in a strategic H2 infrastructure serving growing end-user demands. One area we work to advance is the role of zero emission hydrogen technologies to ensure their clean attributes contribute to maximum potential within the big picture of energy solutions.

We are committed to maintaining a clear voice of the Canadian hydrogen industry for diverse stakeholder groups. As such, we seek to align with other hydrogen-focused organizations to ensure that all efforts are complementary and additive.
