Energy technology company Enapter and its partners have officially launched a project that will see the creation of Southeast Asia’s first green hydrogen learning centre.
Alongside partners German-owned GIZ and Chiang Mai University’s Energy Research and Development Institute of Nakornping (ERDI), Enapter will establish the hub in Chiang Mai, Thailand with the aim of training industry professionals and enabling the growth of hydrogen infrastructure in the region.
To be carried out through the International Hydrogen Ramp-up Program (H2Uppp) – a GIZ initiative – the project builds on the progress made by the Phi Suea House in Chiang Mai, a residence that become the world’s first self-sustaining development powered by a clean energy system based on hydrogen energy storage.
Commenting on the project, Sebastian-Justus Schmidst, said, “Every new technology first goes through a learning phase. The doubts that arise at the beginning can be reliably dispelled with education and knowledge transfer.”
“This project will act like a green hydrogen lighthouse for the region and make Thailand, and especially Chiang Mai, known as a knowledge centre in hydrogen, even beyond the country’s borders.”
