TES Presents Crucial Initiative for Québec's Decarbonization through Green Hydrogen

TESCanada H2 Inc. , a Canadian developer of projects aimed at accelerating the energy transition, has announced the Projet Mauricie. Totalling $4 billion in investments for the region, the Projet Mauricie consists of the construction of an electrolyzer and renewable energy production assets. Upon its commissioning in 2028, the project will produce 70,000 tons of green hydrogen exclusively dedicated to Québec end-users.

With the aim of reducing annual CO2 emissions by 800,000 tons, it is one of the largest decarbonization projects announced in Québec to date.

“We are proud to be developing this major project in the Mauricie region, the cradle of renewable energy in Québec. The region, at the heart of the Vallée de la transition énergétique, offers many advantages to deliver hydrogen to Québec users. The economic spin-offs will be significant for Shawinigan and the Mauricie region and will position Québec as a leader in decarbonization,” said Eric Gauthier, General Manager, TESCanada H2 Inc.

Green hydrogen provides a carbon-neutral solution to hard-to-electrify sectors. Approximately 1/3rd 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.
”Clean energy represents a generational economic opportunity. This project in the Mauricie region will create hundreds of sustainable jobs while providing affordable, reliable and clean energy to the Québec power grid, as well as to the industry and transportation sectors. Projects like this one help to fight climate change and create a prosperous future," said Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources

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.

Located in the Vallée de la transition énergétique, the Projet Mauricie will significantly contribute to the economic development for this region and all of Québec, creating high-quality job prospects and lasting economic benefits.
“The Mauricie region is bursting with potential, so it seems only fitting that a company like TES Canada would set up its new project here. The workers of our region will help build the Québec of tomorrow, right here in our backyard. I would like to thank and congratulate all the partners involved in this wonderful project,” said Jean Boulet, Minister of Labour and Minister responsible for the Mauricie, Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Nord-du-Québec regions
More than 1,000 jobs will be created during the construction period, and the Projet Mauricie will ultimately create more than 200 permanent, specialized jobs in a fast-growing industry.
