Singapore calls for interest in hydrogen and ammonia

The Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) are inviting interested parties to submit proposals under an Expression of Interest (EOI) to build, own and operate low or zero-carbon power generation and bunkering solutions in Jurong Island, Singapore.

The EOI will enable the island nation, which is targeting Net Zero by 2050, to explore the use of hydrogen and ammonia for power generation, alongside other low-carbon alternatives such as electricity imports and domestic renewable energy sources. Proposals need to be submitted by April 30 next year.

Low or zero-carbon ammonia may also have multiple end-use pathways for power generation and bunkering. Beyond the power and maritime sectors, low or zero-carbon hydrogen and ammonia are also promising decarbonisation pathways for energy, chemicals and aviation sectors.

The move follows the recent launch of Singapore’s National Hydrogen Strategy. A key thrust of the strategy is for Singapore to experiment with the use of advanced hydrogen technologies that are on the cusp of commercial readiness.

The roadmap forecasts that 50% of Singapore’s electricity demand in 2050 will be met by hydrogen fuel (via closed cycle gas turbines).
