Atura Power is proud to be playing a leadership role in establishing the supply of low-carbon hydrogen in Ontario. See how we're helping enable Ontario's net-zero future.
Hydrogen is a low-carbon energy source which has the potential to reduce or offset emissions in a variety of applications. As the world moves toward net-zero, hydrogen will be a critical tool in the fight against climate change.
Enabling Ontario's net-zero future
We're enabling a future that's cleaner by safely producing hydrogen that will help us reach the goal of net-zero emissions. Learn more in this video.
Our Hydrogen strategy at a glance
We will produce low-cost hydrogen by leveraging existing assets like real estate and electricity infrastructure to drive efficiency and value.
We will produce low-carbon hydrogen leveraging electricity from Ontario's clean grid - one of the cleanest in the world.
Vertically integrated, we will be a producer and consumer of hydrogen, blending it into our combined cycle gas turbines. This will not only ensure an anchor consumer of hydrogen but will also ensure a secure supply for the Ontario market.
- The transportation sector is the single largest contributor to Ontario's carbon emissions. Atura will be a catalyst for Ontario's hydrogen economy by developing focused hydrogen hubs and by leveraging industrial customers to support long-term mobility adoption (i.e., long-haul hydrogen powered trucking) along major transportation corridors to reduce carbon emissions.
Our Hydrogen projects
Niagara Hydrogen Centre (NHC)
Atura Power has selected the Niagara region as its first Ontario site for large-scale hydrogen production. The proposed green hydrogen production facility will be home to a 20 MW electrolyzer, pending Federal funding decisions expected Spring 2022.
- Local hydrogen supply will solidify Niagara as a prominent low-carbon hydrogen hub for heavy-duty trucking, municipal mobility, and heavy industrial consumers in Ontario
- Hydrogen in the near term will also be blended into Atura Power’s gas turbine facilities
- Hydrogen will be produced using run-of-river hydroelectricity with the capability to provide grid regulation services
- Estimated to be online early 2024
Halton Hills Energy Centre, Greater Toronto Area
Atura Power can blend hydrogen into its combined cycle gas turbine and can be an anchor consumer as mobility application demand grows.
Hydrogen production potential is being considered at this convenient GTA location along Highway 401 with a large density of end-users, such as heavy duty trucking and vehicle fleets.
Atura is undertaking multiple feasibility studies to investigate the technical and commercial aspects of establishing hydrogen hubs in Nanticoke, Sarnia, Windsor, and other locations across Ontario. Topics under review include transition of heavy emitting industries to lower carbon fuels, blending with natural gas for combustion purposes, and storing hydrogen in underground salt caverns in southern Ontario
