Climate change awareness is re-shaping social behaviors and industry business models. In this context, the energy industry, more than others, is facing unprecedented pressure to prove its business model capable of leading the way toward a successful energy transition.
At present, in Asia Pacific, natural gas & LNG play a fundamental and growing role as bridging fuel toward a low carbon economy. Most energy scenarios forecast a gas market in expansion for at least 15-20 years, replacing coal in power generation.
However, relying only on gas switch is not enough. Innovation and integration is key to guiding every player in the sector to actively contribute to the energy transition and transformation.
To push the energy transition forward, and to target decarbonization and CO2 reduction, it is important to build technology portfolios able to improve the entire CO2 value chain: governments and private stakeholders are strengthening the case for low-carbon hydrogen, which however would require coordinated policy, lower hydrogen production costs, and massive growth of renewables.
This webinar will address the state of hydrogen and LNG mix considering the clean energy transition process initiated in Asia-Pacific.
Key discussion areas:
1. Regional market outlook, impact on ASEAN energy sector, new business models
2. Leveraging on the role of hydrogen & LNG in decarbonising ASEAN’s power sector: technical innovations
3. Indonesia in focus: initiatives, growth strategy related to small-medium scale LNG infrastructures
4. Australia in focus: the set-up of a hydrogen power supply ecosystem
5. Hydrogen versus LNG: stakes and expectations
