“Nation-leading” order: Massachusetts tells gas utilities to electrify

Utility regulators rejected renewable natural gas and hydrogen as climate solutions, and ordered gas utilities to align their investments with climate laws. That may force gas utilities towards electrification.

Singapore hydrogen

Singapore hydrogen plans accused of greenwashing

Hydrogen development plans are making headway in Singapore and the new fuel has been called “low carbon” but Singapore’s hydrogen strategy is still opaque and it’s unclear to what extent it might contribute to decarbonization.

Caribbean energy grids need overhaul to wean off oil: study

Rising sea levels and intensifying hurricanes underline the urgency of transforming Caribbean energy systems, which are oil-based, costly and vulnerable.

hydrogen pipeline

Gulf-Europe hydrogen pipeline viable: study

A hydrogen pipeline from Gulf countries to Europe might represent one of the most cost competitive options on the table amid targets to import 10 million tonnes of the fuel to Europe by 2030 as part of energy transition targets, experts said.

France-UK energy deal to boost green energy trade

Cooperation on hydrogen stemming from the new France-UK energy deal would benefit transport infrastructure and promote trade, say experts.

LNG suppliers

The risks of “hydrogen-ready” LNG infrastructure claims

Some policymakers are promising that gas and LNG infrastructure will be used for hydrogen in the future. But “hydrogen-ready” claims are misleading, and risk undermining climate targets.

Uruguay carves dual path of hydrocarbons and hydrogen

Uruguay is the latest South American country to unveil a green hydrogen roadmap, but unlike some other aspiring producers and exporters of the emerging resource, the government has not yet relinquished plans to drill for oil and gas.

Gold hydrogen takes to the stage in Australia, but questions remain

Gold hydrogen is garnering attention in Australia as a potential competitor to blue and even green hydrogen, but critics say that gold hydrogen comes with considerable methane emissions and may not be volumetrically significant.

Ukraine war accelerates EU hydrogen push

The war in Ukraine seems set to accelerate clean hydrogen development in the EU, in line with the bloc’s increased targets for hydrogen uptake, but the nascent industry still has considerable challenges to overcome.

Climate think-tank casts doubt on hydrogen blending

Plans for large-scale green hydrogen blending using existing natural gas infrastructure is at best a “highly inefficient solution for power generation and heating,” according to the Energy Innovation paper.

Saudi Arabia’s net zero goals in the spotlight

Saudi Aramco says it hopes to achieve net zero SCOPE-1 and SCOPE-2 greenhouse gas emissions across its fully owned operations by 2050, but warns that achieving this in less than three decades will not be easy.

Green hydrogen in SE Asia faces big hurdles

Southeast Asia, home to the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations block, is playing catch-up in green hydrogen development. Other than Singapore, no members have included it in their respective energy policies, according to a recent report.
