On Vancouver Island, the Hydrogen Technology and Energy Corporation (HTEC) has opened the first public hydrogen fuel station. As part of Esso's partnership with 7-Eleven, the new building was built at a gas station in the Saanich district.

The new station is the result of the province's CleanBC Go Electric programme and Canada's Natural Resource initiative for alternative fuel distribution.

The former contributed $500,000, while the latter gave a million dollars. HTEC's President, Colin Armstrong, revealed that the business already has four hydrogen stations in operation, with more set to open in the coming months.

Furthermore, Norman Hower, Vice-President of 7-Eleven Canada, stated that the firm aims to reduce carbon emissions at its stores by 100% from 2013 levels by 2050.

Bruce Ralston, Energy Minister of Saanich, said:

"We are working to expand our hydrogen-fuelling network to encourage more British Columbians to make the switch to a cleaner vehicle. The adoption of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles and fuelling infrastructure will complement the build-out of our electric-vehicle charging infrastructure and play a critical role in helping us achieve our legislated zero-emission vehicle targets and in our transition to a clean-energy future."
