First of its kind in SE Asia, the S$25 million centre aims to bring green hydrogen from the laboratory to society.

Burning of fossil fuels is one of the most common methods of generating energy. However, it has a detrimental impact on the environment. The use of hydrogen has been identified as an alternative energy generating source due to its proven efficiency as an energy carrier and low-carbon footprint in utilisation. However, high costs remain a major barrier to adopting green hydrogen on a large scale as a climate solution.

To address this challenge, the National University of Singapore (NUS) has established a new research institute, the Centre for Hydrogen Innovations (CHI), with the aim of creating breakthrough technologies to make hydrogen commercially viable as a green energy source. These capabilities will, in turn, help position Singapore as a game-changer in enabling a hydrogen economy – one that relies on hydrogen as one of the major commercial fuels to power Singapore’s energy needs. The new Centre has commenced operations on 1 July 2022.

CHI, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, has received a S$15 million endowed gift from Temasek, and along with additional funding from NUS, the new centre has a total investment of S$25 million.
