Like electricity, hydrogen (H2) is an energy carrier but it's in the form of a gas that doesn't emit any greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions when it's used. For hydrogen to be considered a zero-emitting clean fuel, it has to be produced using clean energy. Generating clean electricity is an important step on the path to reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, lowering our carbon footprint, and meeting our net zero goals.

The wide variety of clean energy sources that can be used to produce clean hydrogen include wind, solar, biomass, hydro, geothermal, and nuclear. These clean energy sources are (some of the many) building blocks for clean hydrogen! Let's look at a few of those sources that are available in Atlantic Canada.
