As Singapore plans to halve its peak greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, turning to hydrogen fuels is one option to achieve such a feat. While the nation has turned to solar power to reduce its carbon footprint, plans are underway in researching for effective use of hydrogen as an energy source.
The International Energy Agency’s Future of Hydrogen report finds that clean hydrogen is currently enjoying unprecedented political and business momentum, with the number of policies and projects around the world expanding rapidly, particularly in transport, buildings and power generation. In Singapore, the government has set aside S$49 million to fund low-carbon energy research and test-bedding efforts in hydrogen and carbon capture utilisation and storage. At the Singapore International Energy Week 2020, Singapore’s Minister for Trade & Industry Chan Chun Sing remarked that “hydrogen has tremendous potential as yet another clean form of energy, if not, cleaner form of energy.”
This session is intended to help us better understand the various applications using hydrogen as an alternative fuel source, with insights from industry pioneers as they discuss the importance of hydrogen in meeting Singapore’s and the world’s energy needs in the near future.
