TORONTO — The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and Carlsun Energy announced Ontario’s first public hydrogen refuelling station, with capability for both cars and transport trucks.

Ontario’s first public hydrogen refueling station for both light- and heavy-duty vehicles will be built, owned, and operated by Carlsun Energy, expert integrators in large-scale renewable energy projects. This project is enabled by a $1 million federal investment from Natural Resources Canada.

“With a significant share of Canada’s emissions coming from the transportation sector in Ontario, it’s imperative that we start deploying hydrogen infrastructure in transportation corridors,” said Jason Van Geel, President of Carlsun Energy. “We’re thrilled to be working with Toronto Pearson and Natural Resources Canada to deliver this foundational project at such a key location.”

The station will be capable of refuelling light-duty vehicles and transport vehicles and is integral to Toronto Pearson’s leadership in building clean energy solutions.


“Toronto Pearson, as an economic and aviation hub, is the ideal location for Ontario’sfirst public hydrogen filling station for light and heavy-duty vehicles,” said Deborah Flint, President and CEO of the GTAA. “We are proud to be a leader in this industry and are grateful to work with our partners, Carlsun Energy, and Natural Resources Canada to bring this clean energy solution to the airport economic corridor.”
