TC Energy Corp. recently signed a joint agreement that sees the Canadian pipeline operator collaborating on the codevelopment of large-scale hydrogen production hubs in the U.S. and Canada.

A key objective of the collaboration with U.S.-based electric truck maker Nikola Corp. is to establish hubs producing 150 tonnes or more of hydrogen per day near highly traveled truck corridors to serve Nikola’s planned need for hydrogen to fuel its Class 8 heavy-duty zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicles within the next five years. 

“By leveraging our natural gas and power operations footprint, we see this new partnership as an important first step in facilitating access to affordable low-carbon production of hydrogen for the transportation and industrial sector,” Corey Hessen, TC Energy’s senior vice president and president of power and storage, commented in a joint release on Oct. 7.
