University of Alberta Research Group Contributes to Alberta’s Hydrogen Roadmap

Dr. Kumar and his team (Ayodeji Okunlola, Matthew Davis, Temitayo Giwa, Giovanni Di Lullo, Eskinder Gemechu, Karina Anaya, Abayomi Olufemi Oni, Minza Haider, and Tanveer Hassan Mehedi) provided the research to support Alberta's Hydrogen Roadmap.
