The Singapore Government has said that both hydrogen and carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies will play an important role in the country’s low carbon future.
Such conclusion is based on the results of two feasibility studies, on low-carbon hydrogen and CCUS, that highlighted great potential for the technologies.
The Study of Hydrogen Imports and Downstream Applications for Singapore showed that hydrogen has the potential to diversity Singapore’s fuel mix towards low-carbon options for electricity generation, heavy transportation and some industrial processes.
However, the study also showed that, given Singapore’s limited renewable energy resources, it is challenging for the country to produce green hydrogen at scale using domestic green electricity.
As such, Singapore would need to explore various supply pathways for price-competitive low-carbon hydrogen. Such findings were gathered by the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS), Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), and Energy Market Authority (EMA)
