Report launch event: 9 Insights on hydrogen potentials in Southeast Asia

Renewable hydrogen can play an important role in cutting emissions from industry in Southeast Asia. A new report by Agora Energiewende and Agora Industry shows that to drive sustainable economic growth, it is crucial that governments prioritise renewables deployment, reserve hydrogen for no-regret applications and develop robust decarbonisation strategies.

What this event is about

With most countries in Southeast Asia having adopted net-zero emissions targets, domestic and regional policy discussions have started to explore pathways that can realise these commitments. Hydrogen has generated enormous attention over the past few years: over 50 countries have published hydrogen strategies, and many others, including those in Southeast Asia, intend to do so soon.

Yet, how hydrogen fits into national decarbonisation strategies is still being determined. The controversial use of ammonia co-firing in coal power plants is being discussed in the power sector. Meanwhile, new investments in green steel production could trigger additional and dynamic demand for hydrogen. On the supply side, the region is expected to soon become a net importer of fossil gas, and renewable energy development is still at an early stage and needs to be accelerated.

Agora Industry and Agora Energiewende launch the joint publication report “9 Insights on Hydrogen – Southeast Asia Edition,” which aims to inform discussions on priorities and no-regret uses of hydrogen specific to Southeast Asia’s regional contexts. The event aims to address not only demand and supply but also explore opportunities and challenges for energy infrastructure and Southeast Asia's position in the global hydrogen trade.

The programme of the event will shortly be published in the download area below.

The event takes place in English.

We usually publish all slides shown during the event afterwards.

We are going to record the event to make it available for anyone unable to join on the event’s day.

Come and join us! We look forward to your participation and an energising discussion.
