TESCanada H2 Inc., a Canadian developer of projects aimed at accelerating the energy transition, is proposing Projet Mauricie, a green hydrogen production site that upon commissioning in 2028 will produce 70,000 tonnes of green hydrogen exclusively dedicated to Québec end users.
Totalling $4 billion in investments for the region, the Projet Mauricie consists of the construction of an electrolyzer and renewable energy production assets.
With the aim of reducing annual CO2 emissions by 800,000 tonnes, it is amongst the largest decarbonization projects announced in Québec to date.
Approximately one-third of the green hydrogen produced will be dedicated to decarbonizing long-haul transportation, which accounts for nearly 10% of Québec’s annual emissions. The remaining volumes will be used to produce e-NG (electric renewable natural gas), a sustainable drop-in solution for hard-to-abate industries. TES Canada’s project alone will contribute to achieving 3% of Québec’s GHG reduction targets by 2030.
The majority of the project’s energy needs will be met by its own 1 GW wind and solar farm.
Considering Québec’s energy context, the project’s behind-the-meter assets will minimize the energy drawn from Hydro-Québec’s grid, while also offering optimization opportunities, including loadshedding during peak winter periods.
TES Canada is launching a local stakeholder information and consultation process.
Headquartered in Montréal, TES Canada develops innovative green hydrogen projects in various regions of the country. Its main shareholder, Tree Energy Solutions, is a global renewable energy company building large scale projects in Australia, Europe, the Middle East, United States and Asia.
