Accelerating Growth in Hydrogen Energy Through Electricity Rate Options  (source: Environmental Registry)

As part of Ontario's Low-Carbon Hydrogen Strategy, the Ministry of Energy is considering several options that would provide reduced electricity rates for hydrogen producers to promote sustained growth in Ontario's low-carbon hydrogen economy. Three options are currently under consideration: 1) amending the rules for the Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) applicable to hydrogen producers, 2) enabling onsite hydrogen production using electricity that would otherwise be curtailed, and 3) providing an interruptible electricity rate for hydrogen producers. Note: These options are not intended to be mutually exclusive and could be pursued in any combination.
