MOEA delegation to Canada focuses on hydrogen energy cooperation

A delegation from the Ministry of Economic Affairs’ Energy Administration visited Canada in April, highlighting government efforts to expand hydrogen energy collaboration with the North American partner, the MOEA said April 29.
Led by EA Director General Yu Cheng-wei, group members called on federal and provincial energy authorities and hydrogen businesses, according to the ministry. The EA also expressed desire to formulate regular energy dialogues with Canada to further explore opportunities for cooperation.
A highlight of the trip is a roundtable meeting with officials from Natural Resources Canada April 19, the MOEA said. The two countries shared hydrogen policies, and both agreed that the gas will play a key role in achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, it added.
According to the EA, the roundtable has paved the way for future bilateral partnership in developing hydrogen technologies and drafting relevant measures. Canada has rich natural resources, and with the Hydrogen Strategy released in 2020, there is the potential for it to become an important exporter of ammonia and hydrogen in the future, the administration said.
In addition, representatives from Kaohsiung City-based Metal Industries Research and Development Centre inked a cooperative memorandum of understanding with their counterparts from Edmonton-headquartered C-FER Technologies. The pact focused on oil and gas pipeline safety assessment and was witnessed by Yu and Ed Jager, director of trade and investment of the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei. (YCH-E)
