Singapore has always been a leader and influencer when it comes to climate action in Asia, not to mention a hub for energy trading. Now that influential role seems primed to play out in the hydrogen space. Unveiling Singapore’s national hydrogen strategy, the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong says the island nation — already an established LNG trading hub for the Asia-Pacific region — will “take steps to prepare for hydrogen deployment domestically and work with international partners to build a hydrogen supply chain in Asia.” In terms of the motivations, the small island nation views the emerging new energy segment both as a means of decarbonization and an economic opportunity for the related finance, trade and logistical sectors along the whole value chain, Wong told delegates Tuesday at the opening of the annual Singapore International Energy Week.
