The Transition Accelerator is a pan-Canadian organization that works with others to identify and advance pathways to a prosperous, competitive, net-zero emissions Canada in 2050. We are seeking a motivated individual to help the Accelerator play a pivotal role in leading Canada into the future.

About the Role
In the journey to a net-zero energy system, the integration of clean electricity and clean fuels is pivotal for a competitive economy. The increasing reliance on clean electricity in many sectors such as passenger transportation and building heat is contributing to a surge in demand. However, electrification is not the sole solution. Clean fuels, including biofuels and hydrogen, will be key energy carriers in sectors that are not easily electrified, including heavy industry, heavy transportation, and potentially heating solutions in colder climates.

The Accelerator’s Net-Zero Fuels team is dedicated to driving the development of new supply and value chains (production, distribution, use, storage and potential export) to accelerate the use of net-zero fuels like hydrogen.
