Singapore is committed to doing its part to combat climate change, through decarbonising domestic emissions, as well as playing a catalytic role to decarbonising the international maritime and aviation sectors. We view low-carbon hydrogen and its various carrier forms as a broad-based and scalable decarbonisation pathway for Singapore and the world. Given the uncertainties in global supply chains and key technologies as well as our limited size, we will take a calibrated and progressive approach in developing our domestic infrastructure and deployment.

We will focus on seeding pathfinder projects and building up the capabilities of our regulatory agencies, industry and workforce, and undertaking long-term infrastructure and workforce planning, so that we are prepared to scale up deployment in tandem with global and technological developments.

We will also invest in research and innovation to solve key technological bottlenecks that are most relevant to Singapore, and facilitate the commercialisation of these research outcomes. Strong international partnership is a crucial enabler, without which we will not be able to successfully make this journey. Internationally operable Guarantee of Origin certification methodologies and emissions intensity standards is critical in facilitating international trade and hydrogen’s global acceptability as a decarbonisation tool. Countries’ commitment to allow the free trading of low-carbon hydrogen and its carrier forms is also important to build confidence in the market and end-users.

The journey ahead is an important and exciting one. Singapore welcomes ideas and suggestions from our industry and international partners on how we can better navigate towards a low-carbon hydrogen future. Together, we can build a more sustainable world for generations to come
