The h2 Early Adopters (h2EA) program supported projects involving a consortium of two or more private and/or public sector partners to demonstrate, on an integrated basis in real-world settings, the use of a wide range of hydrogen and hydrogen-compatible technologies in specific locations across Canada.
These projects enabled firms to test and showcase their technologies in working pilot-scale versions of a hydrogen economy, and helped increase investor and consumer awareness of Canadian capabilities and of the many benefits and uses of hydrogen-powered applications. The targeted concepts included:
A hydrogen highway demonstration introduced Canadians to a highway that has integrated all the necessary aspects, including required infrastructure such as production, storage and distribution, to drive a hydrogen-powered vehicle between point A and point B. This demonstration also included putting in place the appropriate codes and standards.
A hydrogen village demonstration introduced Canadians to a designated area that adopts hydrogen technology applications as a power source. This could include a cluster of homes, computers, buses and more, using fuel cells and hydrogen as their source of power.
