Thailand is in transition towards its goals to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2065 following the country’s commitment at last year’s COP26.
Green hydrogen is an energy carrier of renewable energies that can help to decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors such as in industry, transport and power generation and thereby support countries in their net-zero emission goals.
Recently, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German-Thai Chamber of Commerce (GTCC) kicked off the conference on green hydrogen in the framework of the H2Uppp programme. The programme aims to ramp up the market for green hydrogen (GH2) and Power-to-X (PtX) applications in Thailand.
More than 180 people joined the conference including relevant partners and stakeholders, who gained first-hand knowledge from discussions and presentations given by industry pioneers, technology providers, policymakers, and other key stakeholders.
The H2Uppp project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affaires and Climate Action (BMWK). GIZ will implement H2Uppp hand in hand with GTCC to support the policy and market development for GH2 and PtX through studies and training as well as through the identification and initiation of public-private partnership (PPP) projects. Moreover, the programme promotes and disseminates knowledge through seminars and workshops, and facilitates networking between local and international GH2 specialists, in particular vis-à-vis the German private sector. This includes market analyses, organisation of business roundtables and conferences.
