Singapore’s national hydrogen strategy — announced just last month — would focus on cost-cutting in the transmission and distribution channels, a senior official told Energy Intelligence last week on the sidelines of COP27 in Egypt. Singapore lacks the renewable energy resources for green hydrogen production, so “the key focus is really to do small-scale pilots and R&D on transmission and distribution channels to see if we can bring down the cost,” explained Heng Jian Wei, director of policy and strategy at the Singapore Prime Minister’s Office. Singapore is watching to see how hydrogen technology progresses in terms of that cost competitiveness piece, Heng noted, adding: “At the same time, I wouldn't rule out other technologies ... for example, we continue to keep an eye on nuclear developments in small modular reactors as well as on nuclear fusion.”
