Canada pledges CAD 11 million for small reactor and hydrogen research

Industry news
Funding

  • The Canadian Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Jonathan Wilkinson, has announced a CAD 11 million (USD 8.1 million) funding package for various energy technology initiatives across Canada. The projects fall into two categories: CAD 2.5 million (USD 1.8 million) for small modular reactor research and CAD 8.5 million (USD 6.3 million) for clean hydrogen innovation.

  • The funding includes grants for projects by Aurora Hydrogen, Quantiam Technologies, Innova Hydrogen, ATCO Gas and Pipelines, Innovative Fuel Systems, and New Wave Hydrogen.

  • The funding will support various projects, from advancing the use of microwave energy for pyrolysis technology to the production of carbon-negative methanol and e-fuels to zero-carbon hydrogen production via catalytic methane pyrolysis. The funding will also support feasibility studies for pure hydrogen pipeline networks and the development of dual-fuel hydrogen and diesel retrofit systems for heavy-duty vehicles.

  • This funding announcement comes as Canada strengthens its commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and strengthening its position as a leader in critical energy technologies. With this funding, the government hopes to stimulate growth in the energy innovation sector and strengthen the country's ability to produce low-carbon hydrogen and other critical clean energy technologies. Funding recipients, such as Aurora Hydrogen and Quantiam Technologies, are engaged in critical research and development to advance clean energy solutions.
