Singapore Exploring the use of Hydrogen for Power Generation
The Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) have announced that they 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.
It is said that the EOI will enable Jurong Island, Singapore, 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.
Low or zero carbon hydrogen has the potential to support Singapore’s decarbonisation efforts and help the country to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 by creating decarbonisation pathways for energy, chemicals and aviation sectors.
Mr Teo Eng Dih, Chief Executive of MPA, said: “Close collaboration between the public and private sector is critical to accelerating decarbonisation in the maritime industry.
“MPA hopes to partner with those who are committed to building up the global supply chain for low or zero-carbon fuels, including ammonia, with Singapore as a key bunkering hub.”
