Toronto Pearson International Airport will be home to Ontario’s first public hydrogen refuelling station.

The station, which is capable of serving both light-duty vehicles and transport trucks, will be constructed by Carlsun Energy in partnership with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), the companies announced in a press release on 06JUL.

Carlsun will own and operate the station, which the two groups said is enabled by a $1 million investment from Natural Resources Canada.

Deborah Flint, President and CEO of the GTAA, stated, "Toronto Pearson, as an economic and aviation hub, is the ideal location for Ontario's first public hydrogen filling station for light and heavy-duty vehicles.  We are proud to be a leader in this industry and are grateful to work with our partners, Carlsun Energy, and Natural Resources Canada to bring this clean energy solution to the airport economic corridor."

There are currently five retail hydrogen stations across the country, four of which are in British Columbia and the fifth in Quebec, reports CityNews.

"With a significant share of Canada's emissions coming from the transportation sector in Ontario, it's imperative that we start deploying hydrogen infrastructure in transportation corridors. We're thrilled to be working with Toronto Pearson and Natural Resources Canada to deliver this foundational project at such a key location," added Jason Van Geel, President of Carlsun Energy.

Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said in the press release that the new station will help ensure supply chains continue to grow amid the fight against climate change.
