Clean Energy is not new to Canada, but we are gearing up for an even larger presence. We currently own or operate 26 natural gas fueling stations across the country, most of which are private facilities. In order to provide greater access to low-carbon compressed natural gas (CNG), our sights are set on developing a robust network of public stations for heavy-duty trucks and other commercial fleets.
In 2023, we announced a $70M joint development agreement with Tourmaline to do just that. Over the next five years we plan to construct and commission up to 20 new CNG stations along key highway corridors in Western Canada.
One of North America’s largest logistics companies, Mullen Group, has indicated its support for the initiative and expects to use the network of stations to fuel its growing fleet of CNG-powered trucks.
The first station jointly owned under the agreement, located north of Edmonton, is operational and well-positioned for heavy-haul transport routes with close proximity to key customers and stakeholders. The next stations which Tourmaline and Clean Energy expect to commission in the first half of 2024 are anticipated to be located within the municipalities of Calgary and Grande Prairie in Alberta and Kamloops, B.C.
