Hydrogen Innovation Fund Proposal Intake Window Now Open

April 6, 2023

In a key milestone in the evolution of the hydrogen economy in Ontario, the IESO has opened the proposal intake window for the Hydrogen Innovation Fund (HIF).

Clean hydrogen has the potential to play a key role in the decarbonization of the Ontario’s electricity system and the broader economy. These projects will enable the IESO, proponents and the electricity sector at large to understand how hydrogen can support the energy transition.

With a total budget of $15 million over three years, the goal of the HIF is to investigate, evaluate and demonstrate how low-carbon hydrogen technologies can be integrated into Ontario’s electricity grid for the purposes of balancing and strengthening the province’s electricity system.

The deadline to submit proposals is May 5, 2023. Documents required for the submission can be found here. If you have any questions, please send an email to
