Calgary Chamber welcomes government support to advance hydrogen

Calgary, August 1, 2023 – The Calgary Chamber of Commerce applauds the provincial and federal government’s announcement to invest in new hydrogen technologies, advancing Alberta’s leadership in clean tech and the diversification of our energy sector.
