first_imgFitch sees significant growth potential for green hydrogen in Asia-Pacific region FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Asian Power:Amid increasing viability of the technology, government support and investor interests in several markets, substantial growth opportunities abound for the green hydrogen sector in Asia Pacific over coming years, according to Fitch Solutions.The report observed increasing traction in electrolyser technologies as a carbon-free alternative, which involves the use of electricity to produce hydrogen from water, primarily from non-hydro renewable generation sources.Fitch estimates Asia’s electrolyser capacity to reach over 10GW over the coming decade, but this could still accelerate. “The resulting ‘green hydrogen’ is a highly adaptable energy carrier and can be used in a wide and increasing number of industry applications,” the report stated.A key driver to its development is closely linked to the abundance of cheap low-carbon electricity. “We believe that the proliferation of renewable energy in the region, and its rapidly-falling costs, will push production costs of hydrogen down and drive adoption of the technology,” Fitch added.According to a broad consensus, the cost of electrolysers could half and reach market parity with grey, fossil fuel based, hydrogen by 2030, making it a highly competitive energy alternative.The growth of green hydrogen in the region is expected to be driven by Japan and Australia, but there is also increasing support from China, India, South Korea, Singapore and New Zealand. Most of these markets have included hydrogen into their policy agenda.More: Growth opportunities arise for green hydrogen in Asia Pacificlast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Club’s server collapses over ticket demand for first Bundesliga game in 11 years Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Granit Xhaka has agreed terms with Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin, according to the Arsenal midfielder’s agent. Sky Germany reported last week that Hertha head coach Jurgen Klinsmann was eager to sign Xhaka in January, and Sky Sports News understands talks between the two clubs are continuing. It is understood Arsenal are looking to recoup as much of the £35m they paid Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016, but Xhaka’s agent José Noguera is hopeful a move can be concluded. Noguera said: “Look, I say it frankly and honestly: we agree with Hertha BSC and would like to go to Berlin. We told Arsenal’s club boss Raul Sanllehi and sports director Edu – as well as the new trainer Mikel Arteta. ” He added: “Arsenal was informed about all the steps, the player and Hertha are clear. It is only about the transfer fee of the clubs.” Xhaka started new head coach Arteta’s first game in charge, a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth on Boxing Day. Arteta, who was previously assistant manager at Manchester City, even recommended his former club sign Xhaka before he moved to Arsenal. However, the Swiss international looks set for a move away from the Emirates after a controversial few months which included being stripped as club captain for gesturing towards and swearing at fans while being booed off against Crystal Palace. Hertha currently sit 12th in the Bundesliga, just four points off the relegation play-off place. Arteta said the attitude of his Arsenal players was “spot on” after they fought back to salvage a draw at Bournemouth on his managerial debut. He said: “I’m very pleased with some of the things I’ve seen in terms of attitude, character, the passion we showed, and the fight and the spirit the team showed. “[It was] spot on, probably better than I expected over 90 minutes. “A lot of things that happened in the game we prepared, I think they understood them and they tried to take them on board and we liked the final product at the end. “I was worried what would have happened if we conceded a goal, and we did, and I was very pleased with the character they showed, how they came in at half-time, their faces, their reactions, how much they wanted it. “Because normally when they are in this process and you concede a goal, belief goes down and a lot of things that have happened in the past can come back. “And it didn’t happen, it happened completely the opposite side and that’s a real positive to take on board.”Tags: ArsenalBundesligaGranit XhakaHertha BerlinJurgen Klinsmannlast_img read more
