Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I'd also like to thank the witnesses for being with us today.
I'd like to welcome all the new people to the committee. We're used to working in a collegial way on this committee.
My questions are for Prof. Pollet.
I'd like to begin by congratulating you, Prof. Pollet. I learned that you were honoured by the International Association for Hydrogen Energy last July for your work and research on innovative materials related to sustainable development.
You've even been invited to join the Council of Engineers for the Energy Transition created by the United Nations, or UN, which brings together the world's top scientists in energy efficiency. That really calls for congratulations. Thank you for your work as a professor and a pioneer in the field.
Canada has released the Hydrogen Strategy for Canada. Among other things, it's said to be ambitious, that Canada will achieve net-zero emissions and that it will put Canada at the forefront. However, 90% of the hydrogen currently produced comes from hydrocarbons. That's not how we're going to meet our targets.
Thanks to you, we realize that hydrocarbon becomes a tool of choice when it is the product of a renewable and carbon-neutral source.
How could the government help take tremendous steps forward in green hydrogen?
