English Español HTEC, 7-Eleven Canada open hydrogen fueling station in North Vancouver

7-Eleven Canada and HTEC are partnering on three hydrogen fueling stations to support the rollout of zero-emission hydrogen electric vehicles in British Columbia.

Last update:

HTEC Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation (HTEC), in partnership with 7-Eleven Canada, Inc., has opened hydrogen fueling station in North Vancouver. The station is part of an Esso-branded service station in the  Westview Shopping Centre. It is the third station to open in HTEC’s hydrogen fueling station network.

HTEC and 7-Eleven Canada have begun construction on a second station together, which will open on Vancouver Island later this year. The companies are also expanding the network into the Okanagan with a station set to open in Kelowna next year. All three 7-Eleven Canada stations will operate at sites where Esso-branded fuel is sold.

“Reducing our impact on the environment is a major focus for 7‑Eleven Canada and an important priority for many of our customers. The innovative hydrogen refueling solutions we are building with HTEC continue to reduce our carbon footprint while meeting the evolving transportation needs of our customers,” Norman Hower, Vice President & General Manager, 7-Eleven Canada, Inc.

Natural Resources Canada is providing funding for each of the three stations through its Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, which aims to establish hydrogen stations in major metropolitan areas.

A significant level of support for the Westview station comes through the Government of British Columbia’s Part 3 Agreement under the BC Low Carbon Fuel Standard, which includes investment for actions that increase the use of low carbon fuels. The Province is also contributing funding for the stations through its Go Electric BC Program, part of the CleanBC plan to reduce pollution and meet BC’s climate targets.
