move and Edmonton Global intend to cooperate more closely for future projects.
Canada is one of the major players in the energy business. Today, oil, gas and coal are the main sources. But Canada committed to a greener future and therefore is now shaping their transition to become one of the major renewable energy and hydrogen suppliers of the world.
“As part of a political-economic delegation trip organized by Saxony’s State Minister Martin Duling and his team in autumn 2022, I gained intensive insights into the strategic initiatives of the provinces of Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia,” says Tom George, Managing Director of move consulting. George continues: “These findings confirmed my previous learning from project business in the mining sector.”
These insights formed the basis for move to look for a strong partner in Canada, which has now been found in Edmonton Global. The two companies agreed to intend to work more closely in the near future – the focus should be on a close strategic and technological exchange, as well as the desire to work together on multi-national projects in the field of green energy, hydrogen and alternative fuels.
“We are happy to cooperate with move on technology topics, which are essential not only for our region’s economic growth. We promise ourselves an intensive exchange between Canada and move’s network in Europe and around the world and look forward to the next steps together”, says Brent Lakeman, Director Hydrogen Initiative at Edmonton Global.
