Nuclear needed for Canada’s hydrogen goals – NII

Renewables alone will struggle to meet demand set by Canadian hydrogen strategy, says research institute

Canada’s hydrogen strategy will require new nuclear generation to supply growing electricity demand, according to a report by the nation’s Nuclear Innovation Institute. The government’s hydrogen strategy projects that hydrogen could account for between 13pc and 31pc of the nation’s total energy demand by 2050. But if hydrogen were to meet 18pc of Canada’s energy demand by 2050, then 436TWh of new electricity generation would be needed, the report says—an almost two-thirds increase from Canada’s 2018 electricity production of 648TWh. 31pc – Amount of Canada’s 2050 energy consumption that could be met with hydrogen Deploying renewables alone to meet this demand would require 26
