2023 Joint-Thematic Regional Capacity Building Program on Green Hydrogen for System Transformation: Asia and Pacific in Energy and Sustainable Mobility Sectors
According to the latest IPCC AR6 the most effective way of keeping global temperatures from rising no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030 is to cut fossil fuels as fast as possible and invest in renewable energy. The IPCC AR6 identifies hydrogen as one of the alternative fuels to reduce fossil fuel use substantially and of all multiple energy supply options available to reduce emissions over the next decade, hydrogen produced from electrolysis (‘Green’) holds great potential to transform systems of heavy industry, residential and commercial buildings, and transport. However, the effectiveness of hydrogen will depend on how quickly and how far technology improves (p. 91).
This year, as a service to foster the endogenous capacity of climate technology in developing countries, CTCN will deliver capacity building program on green hydrogen across three regions with a specific focus on certain areas of system transformation.
Two transformation areas of the energy system and sustainable mobility sectors are selected by following analyses of National Determined Contributions (NDCs) of 62 countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
The main objective of this capacity building program on green hydrogen is to increase National Designated Entites (NDEs)’s knowledge on all types of hydrogen technologies available for future RD&D collaboration.
From 23rd – 26th May 2023, Busan, South Korea, this program offers various opportunities to the participating NDEs including:
- Understanding past, current, and the future of Hydrogen Technology in Energy and Sustainable Mobility sectors;
- Peer-to-peer learning of existing national hydrogen policy plans;
- Matchmaking with local technology providers to incorporate economy and social shift strategies for sustainability.
