Canada, Germany sign green-energy deal in bid to power fledgling hydrogen sectors

DM

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 Tuesday by the two countries’ energy ministers, it outlines a plan to co-operate on energy policy and research as both strive to reach the goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan said Quebec and his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador are particularly well positioned to start generating so-called “green hydrogen,” which burns cleanly and can be produced using wind and solar power. O’Regan stressed the need to retrain workers in regions with economies long reliant on struggling fossil-fuel industries, saying the transition could be “messy.”
