Although we are following developments in the use of hydrogen fuel for transportation, our priority and choice remains transportation electrification.
One of the challenges of using hydrogen as fuel is developing a network of service stations. The beauty of electricity is that the network is already in place, so it is easy to install charging stations to provide a public charging network that meets the needs of electric vehicle drivers. The Electric Circuit offers 600 charging stations in 142 municipalities in 16 Québec regions.
Québec electricity provides a number of advantages to driving electric, in particular in terms of energy costs. It costs a bit less than $2 to travel 100 km on electricity, whereas fueling up on hydrogen is estimated at $14/kg and a hydrogen vehicle consumes an estimated 1 kg every 100 km.
