What does the hydrogen market push look like for an entrepreneur? What about bridge technologies as we move to net zero? Is net zero even possible? Joining us today is Leland Oberst, President and CEO of Innovative Fuel Systems to give his thoughts on what the move to a hydrogen economy could look like for entrepreneurs. 

Innovative Fuel Systems (IFS) is an Alberta company that has developed a proprietary technology for heavy duty trucks that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and leads to significant fuel savings.
