Hydrogen: The Fuel of the Future presented by 2018 Engineering Project of the Year Award Winner Hydrogenics
Date: Monday, September 9, 2019, 6:30pm to 9:00pm
Location: Courtyard Toronto Markham, 65 Minthorn Blvd, Thornhill, Ontario
Hydrogenics is a company with over 70 years of experience in hydrogen products and is the only company worldwide with industrial scale deployments in both fuel cell and electrolysis technology.
Humanity’s energy journey has been ever evolving from burning wood, then coal, then oil, then natural gas (CH4) on its way to the ultimate fuel: hydrogen (H2). Hydrogen links our renewable solar, wind and water electrical generation assets to not only our natural gas energy grid but also to our transportation sector. It has the potential to revolutionize how we think about and use energy.
At this event you will learn about the technology, the products, the projects, the challenges, the advantages and the opportunities for renewable hydrogen.
We are pleased to have our 2018 Mid-Size Category Winner Hydrogenics kicking off our 2019 Engineering Project of the Year Award. Our speaker, Anna Murray, P.Eng., will share her experience from applying to eventually winning the 2018 award.
PEO York Chapter Engineering Project of the Year Award is an annual Engineering Project competition set to recognize the contribution, to both the engineering profession and the local community, by an organization that has undertaken and completed outstanding Engineering Project within the past year.
