Clean fuels

Hydrogen fuel is a versatile source of clean energy that can help decarbonize difficult-to-abate applications, including high temperature applications like cement and steel production and areas where the use of electricity is not yet feasible such as long-distance transportation. Producing hydrogen through a clean energy source, such as nuclear energy from the ARC-100, can sustain the environmental benefits of hydrogen fuel as a clean energy source and increase global sustainability


The ARC-100 is an ideal technology for hydrogen production. Hydrogen is produced by splitting water through a process called electrolysis, which requires electricity and water. The ARC-100 drives this process through the creation of high temperature steam and heat.

The ARC-100 has a higher energy efficiency than coal, oil, and renewable energy sources, and has the highest capacity factor of any energy source, producing maximum power approximately 95% of the time.

Towards Net zero

Hydrogen plays a crucial role in the American and Canadian environmental road maps for Net Zero by 2050, accounting for 14% to more than a third of the projected energy use. The U.S. is the world’s second-largest producer and consumer of hydrogen, accounting for 13% of the global demand, and Canada is one of the world’s top 10 hydrogen producers. With more than 100 billion tons of carbon dioxide produced annually from the electricity sector, hydrogen and its production through nuclear energy—both zero-emission energy sources—hold critical importance in the future of a clean and sustainable world.

As the emerging hydrogen economy will reduce greenhouse gas emissions across Canada and America, hydrogen strategies and initiatives lay out an ambitious framework and set the groundwork for reinforcing hydrogen’s role in achieving net zero goals and positioning Canada and America as clean energy global leaders.


The U.S. Department of Energy is launching major clean hydrogen initiatives through its $8 billion Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs. And the Canadian government is actively advancing a cohesive Hydrogen Strategy through its $1.5 billion Clean Fuels Fund and initiatives.
