To meet their Net Zero scenario the International Energy Agency has forecast the 2050 global demand for green hydrogen to be in the order of 850,000 MW of electrolysers, or around 150 million tonnes of green hydrogen production. For scale, at Tent Mountain, we are currently proposing a 100 MW electrolyser facility.
In Alberta, there have been several “blue hydrogen” projects announced. To produce “blue hydrogen” the reforming process uses natural gas and water as feedstocks, additionally, carbon sequestration is required. Carbon sequestration captures and stores, in subsurface formations, a large portion of the carbon dioxide emitted during the “blue hydrogen” production process. These “blue hydrogen” projects are all located close to natural gas feedstock and potential carbon sequestration locations and will target different end user industries than the Tent Mountain green hydrogen facility.
