Overview

At HTEC, we’re unlocking 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 opened Canada's first retail hydrogen refueling station in June as part of a six-station network we're building in southern British Columbia. We need your support to accelerate and manage our growth. We invite you to join us in the exciting quest we call Fueling the Drive to Hydrogen!

WHY HTEC?

We started the HTEC journey more than 13 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. We opened Canada's first retail hydrogen station in Vancouver in June, in partnership with Shell. This station is the first in a six-station network HTEC is building in Greater Vancouver and Victoria and will enable the deployment of the first 1,000 zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in BC. HTEC is partnering with Shell on three of the six stations.

HTEC's H2 Fueling Station Network
Phase 1: 2018 - 2020


We’ve got an industry track record and great relationships. Selling hydrogen for transportation and retail fueling stations is relatively new. Having worked in the space since 2005, HTEC is a front-runner in the transition to hydrogen-fueled transportation infrastructure. We opened Canada’s first retail hydrogen station in June 2018 and have the advantage of existing relationships with governments, oil companies, industrial gas companies, equipment suppliers and automakers, and more.

HTEC's Partners and Customers

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.

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
  2.  Technology Solutions

WHAT DO WE DO?

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.

We have begun building a central electrolysis production facility to make hydrogen for HTEC's six-station network. This network and production infrastructure, along with our PowerCube hydrogen distribution operations, will enable the deployment of more than 1,000 FCEVs in British Columbia and will solidify HTEC’s position as the leading provider of hydrogen fuel in the country.

In California, our first retail station will be in the heart of Silicon Valley in the town of Woodside. The station will open soon and will generate renewable hydrogen via electrolysis.

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 have a suite of key technologies to help us do this:

1. Clean Hydrogen Production & Processing

  • safety training and programs
  • risk analysis
  • market development support

We are continually expanding our suite of technologies and our internal expertise so we can provide world-leading, cost-effective, and reliable hydrogen fuel-supply solutions.


WHERE ARE WE FOCUSED AND WHY?

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 on the road, regulations are in place, and consumer demand for fossil-fuel alternatives is growing.

Fuel cell cars are here, and more are coming. Every major automaker has an FCEV available or in development. Today, Californians have purchased or leased almost 5,000 FCEVs; in 2022 – in just five years’ time – the State and automakers estimate there will be more than 40,000 FCEVs on California roads. 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 35 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 CEV 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, ENGIE, Royal Dutch Shell, Alstom, Honda, The Linde Group, Anglo American, Hyundai Motor, Total, BMW GROUP, Kawasaki, Toyota, and Daimler.


WHY FUEL CELL ELECTRIC VEHICLES?


HOW DOES HTEC MAKE MONEY TODAY?

Platform 1 – Hydrogen Infrastructure

  • HTEC is paid by governments, car companies, and energy companies to build and operate hydrogen fuel supply infrastructure to enable the introduction of FCEVs.
  • HTEC sells 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

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

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

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 fuel cell electric vehicles 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!

FAQs

  1. Are BEVs better than fuel cell vehicles? There is no one-size-fits-all answer to help society in its transition to a low-carbon energy future. Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) 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 FCEVs are the answer.
  2. Are hydrogen FCEVs safe? Yes. Car companies have done their homework. They have developed the codes and standards and driven FCEVs literally millions of miles to ensure safety. Five thousand Californians own or lease a FCEV. It's 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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.
  5. Where does the station network's hydrogen come from?
    Today, HTEC purchases hydrogen from BC Hydro's Powertech Labs and from Ballard Power Systems. HTEC is building a centralised hydrogen production facility. This facility will be fully operational in 2019 and will make hydrogen from electrolysis and low carbon intensity hydroelectricity. It will have the capacity to provide hydrogen for up to 1,000 light-duty FCEVs. HTEC is also working on the next phase of hydrogen supply, utilizing vented by-product hydrogen in North Vancouver. This facility is expected to be able to provide hydrogen for more than 5,000 cars and a fleet of more than 100 heavy-duty trucks or buses.
  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.

Q&A with Colin Armstrong, CEO of HTEC

Thirteen years ago, Colin Armstrong joined HTEC’s team as a director and is now the CEO of the Vancouver based company. We sat down with him to discuss HTEC’s FrontFundr campaign, the hydrogen industry in Canada and what the future holds for HTEC. 


 HTEC was founded 13 years ago. What's the story behind the company’s inception?

There was a lot of excitement about hydrogen in the early 2000s and significant funding available for demonstration projects. We created HTEC to satisfy the demand for clean hydrogen fuel as part of British Columbia’s Hydrogen Highway suite of demonstration projects. Some people might recall these projects being showcased during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.

HTEC’s first project was to build and operate a by-product-hydrogen purification and compression plant in North Vancouver. This project and HTEC’s involvement in the demonstration fueling stations paved the way for the work we are doing today in BC and elsewhere.


What are the key milestones you have accomplished since the creation of HTEC? 

It’s been a long road, with ups and downs along the way, but that’s to be expected when you’re part of an industry working to change the transportation paradigm.

I think the biggest milestone for our business has been developing the expertise and securing the funding required to turn a dream into a reality: building a retail hydrogen refueling network in BC.

In June, we opened Canada’s first retail hydrogen refueling station, in partnership with Shell. The station, on Granville Street in Vancouver, is the first station in a six-station network we’re building in the Lower Mainland and Victoria to support the first 1,000 FCEVs that roll onto BC roads.


So you have been a CEO in the energy sector for four years now. In your eyes, what has changed the most in the industry at that time? 

We’ve seen a strong evolution and growth in the global market for hydrogen in recent years with three specific things happening that have taken decades to come to fruition.

First, the major car companies have developed affordable fuel cell electric vehicles. Today, in California as an example, automakers have sold or leased 5,000 FCEVs. There are 35 stations open across the state, with another 29 funded and in development. California’s goal is 200 stations by 2025, and 1,000 stations by 2030 to support a projection of one million vehicles. That’s real progress.

Here in Canada, in 2015, Hyundai became the first Canadian automotive company to offer FCEVs to real-world customers, introducing a small fleet of Tucson FCEVs onto BC roads. I drive one and, like many others, am hoping to see Hyundai’s next-generation FCEV, the Nexo, in the province soon. Toyota has also announced it will deliver 50 Mirai FCEVs to drivers in Quebec later this year and we hope we’ll see a fleet here in BC too.

Second, we’re seeing strong support for Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) mandates and Low Carbon Intensity Fuel Regulations in key markets for hydrogen FCEVs. While California has had a ZEV mandate since 1990, Quebec introduced a ZEV standard in 2017, and recent government position papers in BC show strong support for enacting a similar mandate. We’re positioning HTEC to service rapidly evolving markets like BC and Quebec in part because of these policy drivers.

Finally, the industry now has a regulatory framework around safety that makes it possible to bring hydrogen to consumers. That doesn’t mean it’s easy! But this framework supports industry development and growth.


What are your key motivators leading your company? 

When people ask me why we’re doing what we’re doing at HTEC, I think it comes down to the fact that we are driven by the global need to act quickly to reduce the emissions impacting our climate.

Hydrogen for transportation offers so many exciting possibilities to reduce our environmental impact. FCEVs can significantly reduce GHG emissions, and other particulate emissions, but don’t require consumers to make any compromises when it comes to range and refueling. It doesn’t take hours to ‘charge’ an FCEV: you can refuel in less than five minutes and travel at least 400 kilometers on a full tank.


What's ahead for HTEC? 

The global demand for low-emission transportation is keeping us busy! We are focused on keeping up with the demand to build infrastructure in Canada, and we’re excited to see the Canadian public embracing hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and using clean fuel. If they’re filling up at an HTEC station, even better!


Why have you decided to open your raise up to all Canadian investors? The ‘crowd’ as it were. 

We talk to a lot of people about hydrogen and feel there’s a real groundswell of support and excitement. Crowdfunding on the FrontFundr platform offers HTEC an efficient and cost-effective way to connect with a large pool of retail investors interested in what we’re doing. It also helps us forge longer-term connections to a community of people looking to both support BC’s strong and vibrant hydrogen and fuel cell sector, and profit from the growing global shift toward low-emission transportation.

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.”

Michael Crothers, Shell Canada President, and Country Chair

VANCOUVER, March 15, 2018 – HTEC (Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation) is proud to confirm it is partnering with Shell to open Canada’s first retail hydrogen station in Vancouver later this year.

This station will be the first in a six-station network HTEC is building in Greater Vancouver and Victoria to enable the deployment of the first 1,000 zero emission hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in British Columbia. HTEC will build out BC’s retail hydrogen fueling network over the next 18 months, along with a clean hydrogen fuel generation facility, to support initial FCEV rollouts. Zero-emission, hydrogen-fueled FCEVs are entering markets globally and will help Canada meets its clean air and carbon emission reduction targets.

Partnerships are critical in the transition to a clean-energy future and HTEC is proud to be working with organizations like Shell and others to turn hydrogen vision into reality. LGM Financial Services (LGM), a finance and insurance company supplying Canada’s automotive sector, played a critical role as an early sponsor of the network, moving the first station from concept to construction. The network is also made possible by support from Western Economic Diversification Canada’s WINN program, the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEMPR) Clean Vehicle Program and Low Carbon Fuel Regulations, and NaturalResources Canada’s Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative.

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

General Risks
By accessing this site you agree to be bound by FrontFundr’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. FrontFundr distributes exempt market securities to qualified individuals as defined by National Instrument 45-106, Prospectus and Registration Exemptions and crowdfunding exemptions including Multilateral Instrument 45-108 Crowdfunding and Multilateral CSA Notice 45-316 Start-up Crowdfunding Registration and Prospectus Exemptions.
As an exempt market dealer, Silver Maple can trade and underwrite exempt market securities. Exempt market securities are risky investments and you could lose all the money you invest in such securities.
In general, investment products sold in the exempt market are considered high risk because:
  1. They are not covered by deposit or investor protection insurance;
  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. Offering documents and the risks associated with the securities of an issuer contained therein should be reviewed thoroughly by an investor or an investor’s professional advisors before making an investment.
This web site is for general information only and is not intended to provide personalized advice, including investment, financial, legal, accounting or tax advice. FrontFundr will assess your suitability to invest in the products offered on its platform.
