A P.E.I. company is making a multi-million dollar investment in green hydrogen as the province works toward becoming net zero by 2040.
Green hydrogen is hydrogen that’s produced from renewable energy, such as wind or solar power.
The engineering firm Aspin Kemp & Associates says it’s a way to create electricity to heat homes and eventually power trucks, ships and planes with the only emission being water.
“I love P.E.I. because it’s such a small jurisdiction, it’s independent and it’s got the ability to make decisions and be a leader in this type of change,” company CEO Jason Aspin told Island Morning host Mitch Cormier.
“It’s something that we feel is a critical part of the path forward to get to zero emissions.”
