Overview

HTEC’s mission is to help unlock hydrogen’s potential to reduce pollution and climate change by building hydrogen fuel supply solutions for fuel cell electric vehicles.

Over the next five years, we will see thousands of hydrogen-powered cars, trucks and buses roll onto North American roads to meet zero-emission vehicle and climate change mandates. Every vehicle will need hydrogen and a place to refuel, creating a new, rapidly growing market for hydrogen fuel and supply infrastructure.

HTEC is well positioned to seize this new opportunity and create a rapidly growing and profitable business. We need your support to accelerate and manage our growth so we want to give you the opportunity to join us in our exciting quest we call - Fueling the Drive to Hydrogen!

We started the HTEC journey more than 10 years ago and have gained invaluable experience in hydrogen production, distribution and fueling stations that give us several competitive advantages in our space.

We’re building retail hydrogen fueling stations today. This includes the first retail station in Canada (in Vancouver, BC), and one in Silicon Valley, California. Both stations are timed to support our network growth plans and the growing number of FCEVs rolling out on North American roads.

 HTEC'S H2 Fueling Station Network
Phase 1: 2017 - 2020

We’ve got an industry track record and great relationships. Selling hydrogen for transportation and retail fueling stations is relatively new and, having worked in the space since 2005, HTEC is a front-runner in the transition to hydrogen-fueled transportation infrastructure. We are opening Canada’s first retail hydrogen station in the fall and have the advantage of existing relationships with governments, oil companies, industrial gas companies, equipment suppliers and automakers – including Shell, Hyundai, Toyota and Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation (AFCC, a joint venture of Daimler AG and Ford Motor Company).

We’re focused where we can make a difference – and money – today. We’re building our business in the first-mover markets of BC and California, where we can take advantage of early-market funding opportunities while continuing to develop the expertise, relationships, track record, intellectual property and technologies needed for global expansion. We have secured contracts worth more than $20 million to develop hydrogen fuel supply infrastructure in California and BC.


We have a scalable business model, defined revenue streams and a clear path to volume commercialization. Our business is about creating solutions for the supply of hydrogen to new retail fuel markets and existing wholesale markets. We have two growth platforms that will allow us to scale rapidly to service the rapidly expanding domestic and global markets: 1. Hydrogen Infrastructure, and 2. Technology Solutions.

HTEC is a leading developer and provider of hydrogen supply solutions. What does that mean? It means we work closely with our customers to ensure they get hydrogen how, when, and where they want it.

Under our Hydrogen Infrastructure Platform, we build, own, and operate hydrogen production facilities, distribution systems and fueling stations. In California, our first retail station will be located in the heart of Silicon Valley in the town of Woodside. We plan to open to the public this summer and will generate renewable hydrogen via electrolysis. In BC, we have started building the first of the six planned stations, along with a central electrolysis production facility. This infrastructure, along with our PowerCube hydrogen distribution operations, will enable the deployment of more than 1,000 FCEVs in British Columbia and solidify HTEC’s position as the leading provider of hydrogen fuel in the country. We are also working on infrastructure that will connect California and BC as well as service other regions in Canada.


Our Hydrogen Technology Solutions Platform draws on our deep industry experience, know-how, and technologies to provide customized hydrogen production, processing, distribution and vehicle fueling solutions for our infrastructure platform and other clients. We provide design and development services, equipment for hydrogen purification compression, and processing, safety training and programs, risk analysis, and market development support. Currently, we are helping a client design and build backup fueling solutions for a network they are building in the New York area. We are continually expanding our suite of technologies and our internal expertise so we can provide better solutions to our clients and ensure our own Infrastructure platforms that are world-leading, cost-effective and reliable.


HTEC is focused on North American markets where the demand for hydrogen transportation and fuel supply infrastructure is real and growing rapidly.

We know, we know. Some of you may have heard the hydrogen and fuel cell story before. What’s different today? Cost-competitive cars are ready, regulations are in place, and consumer demand for alternatives to fossil fuels is growing.

Fuel cell cars are here, and more are coming. Every major automaker has an FCEV available or in development. Today, more than 1,000 vehicles from Toyota, Hyundai, Honda and Mercedes Benz are on the roads in California; in 2022 – that’s in just five years’ time – the State and automakers estimate there will be more than 40,000 FCEVs. Japan also estimates 40,000 within five years, and in Germany, they estimate that over 150,000 vehicles will be on the road by 2023. In BC, where HTEC is based, we are working with our partners to have 1,000 within the next five years.  
FCEVs need fueling stations. California has more than 25 retail hydrogen stations operating today, with a goal of having 100 by 2023. The California Energy Commission is investing $200M to support the first 100 retail fueling stations in the state. In BC, there are plans for 10 within the next three or four years. Japan and Germany will need 160 and 400 stations respectively within five years to support their vehicle rollouts.
We’re seeing strong public incentive programs. As with hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius, governments are incentivizing the purchase or lease of zero-emission electric vehicles, including FCEVs. In BC, under the Clean Energy Vehicle (CEV) Program, the Province offers incentives of up to $6,000 for a hydrogen FCEV. California residents get up to $7,000 for the purchase or lease of a new, zero-emission vehicle under CA FCV Purchase Incentives.



There’s increased demand for convenient zero-emission mobility. In BC and California, transportation accounts for the largest source of emissions (at 37%) and efforts are underway to reduce the carbon content in fuels using tax levies and incentives. At the same time, consumers often hear one clean-vehicle technology promoted over another, which can be confusing. The reality is there is no one-size-fits-all answer to help society in its transition to a low-carbon energy future. Fuel cell electric vehicles will be part of a portfolio of zero-emission mobility choices for consumers that include battery electric vehicles, other low carbon fuels and public transit. For consumers looking for long-distance range and rapid refueling at central service stations, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles are a great solution.


A new global Hydrogen Council plans to invest $10.7 billion in hydrogen and fuel cells. At Davos, in January 2017, 13 global industry leaders formed a Hydrogen Council to promote hydrogen to help meet climate goals. Together, these companies are planning to make a combined $10.7 billion investment in hydrogen-related products over the next five years. The companies are Air Liquide (co-chair), ENGIE, Royal Dutch Shell, Alstom, Honda, The Linde Group, Anglo American, Hyundai Motor, Total, BMW GROUP, Kawasaki, Toyota (co-chair) and Daimler.

Platform 1 – Hydrogen Infrastructure

  • We are paid by governments, car companies, and energy companies to build and operate hydrogen fuel supply infrastructure to enable the introduction of FCEVs.
  • We sell hydrogen to drivers through our fueling stations, and to industrial clients at our production facilities or by delivering to them directly, using our PowerCube compressed gas delivery system.

Platform 2 - Hydrogen Technology Solutions

  • We sell technical services including design, engineering, equipment assembly and maintenance, and technology solutions based on our experience and proprietary designs.

Every time we talk about what we do and why we’re doing it, we hear from people who are passionate and enthusiastic about zero-emission transportation. People who want to go “emissions free” but desire the convenience of their existing ride.  People who believe in what we are doing at HTEC because they know that hydrogen electric cars need to be a key part of our future.

This got us thinking – how do we give a broader audience, you, the opportunity to help us and share in the excitement and rewards of directly supporting the transition to a clean green transportation system. We believe FrontFundr’s crowdfunding platform offers this opportunity. So please sign up to follow us over the next month to show your support, be first in line to invest, and, receive updates on our exciting activities.

We hope you will join us on our quest Fueling the Drive to Hydrogen!

Yours truly,

Colin Armstrong, CEO and Co-Founder


FAQ's

  1. Are BEVs better than fuel cell vehicles? 
  2. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to help society in its transition to a low-carbon energy future. Fuel cell electric vehicles will be part of a portfolio of transportation choices for consumers that include battery electric vehicles, other low carbon fuels and public transit. For consumers looking for long-distance range and rapid refueling at central service stations, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles are the answer.

  3. Are Hydrogen Vehicles Safe? Yes. Car companies have done their homework. They have developed the codes and standards and driven FCVs literally millions of miles to ensure safety. It is also worth noting that hydrogen is one of the most used products in the world as it is a key ingredient for upgrading gasoline and diesel, and it has one of the best safety records.  
  4. Will I be able to fuel my FCEV at home? Although a few groups are working on this, we see it as an unlikely scenario. We believe most of the market is attuned to filling at a service station. Battery electric vehicles will work for those wishing to charge at home.

  5. Doesn’t making hydrogen create pollution and use a lot of energy?  From well to wheels, hydrogen in an FCEV is more energy efficient and cleaner than a combustion vehicle, including a hybrid. If renewable energy is used to make the hydrogen, carbon emissions can be reduced up to 90%. FCEVs are zero-emission at the tailpipe and reduce carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter and the organic compounds that contribute to smog.

  6. How will HTEC manage the capital-intensive nature of infrastructure development? We’re building our business in the first-mover markets of BC and California, where we can take advantage of early-market incentives and funding opportunities. These will support us as we continue to develop our expertise, relationships, track record, intellectual property and technologies while we are also being paid to build and operate fueling stations. As the market matures, and green bonds become available, we’ll look for increased leveraging opportunities.

  7. When can I invest in HTEC? We anticipate an official offering will be launched in September.

  8. Is my information shared when I sign up to follow HTEC in "Coming Soon"? You will get updates from HTEC via FrontFundr after you ”follow” HTEC in the “Coming Soon” phase. No information will be shared publicly.

HTEC and Shell Open Canada’s First Retail Hydrogen Refuelling Station in Vancouver and Announce Plans for Two More

HTEC and Shell Open Canada’s First Retail Hydrogen Refuelling Station in Vancouver and Announce Plans for Two More. The station will fuel the growing number of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles hitting roads in British Columbia, the same way Canada’s first gas station serviced Vancouverites more than a century ago

VANCOUVER, June 15, 2018 – HTEC (Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation) today opened Canada’s first retail hydrogen refueling station in partnership with Shell. The station—at 8686 Granville Street in Vancouver—is the first in a six-station network HTEC is building in Greater Vancouver and Victoria. This network will enable the deployment of the first 1,000 zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in British Columbia(BC), and HTEC will partner with Shell on three of the six stations.

Partnerships make the transition to a clean-energy future possible. In addition to its strong working relationship with Shell, HTEC is proud to be working with others in industry and government to develop hydrogen refueling infrastructure in BC.

LGM Financial Services (LGM), a finance and insurance company supplying Canada’s automotive sector, was an early sponsor of the network, moving the first station from concept to construction. Funding for this station also comes from Western Economic Diversification Canada’s WINN program and the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEMPR) Clean Vehicle Program and Low Carbon Fuel Regulations.

HTEC will release more information about other stations in the network as it becomes available.

QUOTES

“How fitting Canada’s first retail hydrogen station opens in Vancouver when the country’s first gas station also opened here, 111 years ago. Back then, even with only a few cars on the road, demand for gasoline was increasing and it made sense to build a fuelling station to support a growing network of automobiles. The same is true today: infrastructure must be in place to support FCEV rollouts, and HTEC is proud to be working with our partners to build the first wave of hydrogen refueling stations in Canada, starting here in BC.” 

Colin Armstrong, President and CEO, HTEC

“Our government is committed to making clean transportation more affordable and accessible. We are already well-positioned to be a major player in the worldwide low-carbon economy, and we’ve been pleased to provide support to HTEC and Shell for opening Canada’s first retail hydrogen refueling station. This is another milestone that will help us reach our climate goals.” 

The Honourable Michelle Mungall, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources

“ Working with HTEC to bring hydrogen refueling to Vancouver is one of many exciting ways we are advancing cleaner energy solutions and evolving to meet the changing expectations of customers. Canada is well suited to capitalize on the energy transition thanks to the ingenuity of Canadians and our willingness to work together. We’re grateful for the collaboration between industry and government that was instrumental in making this station a reality.”

  2. Regulators do not review offering memoranda for completeness;
  3. Private issuers are not subject to the same ongoing disclosure obligations as reporting issuers;
  4. Private issuers may inadvertently, or advertently, refrain from providing an investor or a registered dealer, all the information required to make an informed investment decision.
  5. Many exempt products are not as liquid as publicly-traded securities and you may be restricted in your ability to sell or transfer these securities; and
  6. Exempt products are often subject to a greater degree of “key person” risk than more widely held securities.
  7. There can be no assurances that an investment will maintain its net acquisition value or produce any projected income or capital return. Investment values change frequently and past performances may not be repeated.
  8. Using borrowed money to finance the purchase of securities involves greater risk than a purchase using cash resources. If you borrow money to purchase securities, your responsibility to repay the loan and pay interest as required by its terms remains the same even if the value of the securities purchased declines. See “use of borrowed funds”.
The risks highlighted above are not conclusive. Risk disclosures specific for each offering are reviewed by SMV and are presented within an issuer’s profile page on the platform and within the offering memorandum or other offering documents for the issuance.
