Green hydrogen is increasingly being discussed as a decarbonization pathway to Paris commitments. As an energy carrier, hydrogen can support the production of non-fossil fuel derived intermediaries such as methanol, ammonia, and chemical precursors. As a fuel green hydrogen and its derivates can be used to address hard to abate sectors including cement production, iron and steel production and shipping. Significant progress has been made in engaging ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs) on clean hydrogen including cross international financing institutions engagement and wider international collaboration.
The green hydrogen market is set to become an oligopsony. Few major industrialized countries are setting up systems to import green molecules (such as hydrogen but more often as ammonia). At the same time, countries with high renewable energy potential and low industrial levels are positioning themselves to become exporters of hydrogen and derivatives. ASEAN countries are a good example of such dynamics, with a few large demand centers and many potential exporters in potential competition.
To discuss various green hydrogen activities, examples of projects both infrastructural and distributed and discussion on decarbonization pathways using green hydrogen and its derivatives.
To provide background on green hydrogen strategies in ASEAN countries, aiming at grasping the drivers and framing used to motivate political action in the hydrogen sector.
