Canada and Germany have signed an agreement to team up on green energy innovation and trade —
with an eye to hydrogen as the market for the low-carbon fuel heats up.
Signed today by the two countries’ energy ministers,
the memorandum of understanding outlines a plan to
co-operate on energy policy and research as both countries strive to reach the goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan says
Quebec and his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador are particularly well poised to start generating so-called “green hydrogen,”
which burns cleanly and can be produced using wind and solar power.
