Transitioning to ammonia & hydrogen power in Chugoku, Japan

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has published a regional strategy to decarbonise the power generation ecosystem in the Chugoku region, Japan. The strategy predicts the region will require more than 3 million tons of fuel ammonia by 2030, and highlights several ongoing industrial initiatives to demonstrate the use of ammonia fuel & establish local import infrastructure.

Target top regional fuel ports, spend $2 trillion to enable ammonia marine fuel by 2050

New Oxford research finds that over 60% of global shipping fuel demands could be met by renewable ammonia in 2050, which can be achieved by targeting renewable ammonia fuel supplies at the “top 10 regional ports”. The team also predicts that conventional maritime fuel production could be replaced by a more “regionalised industry”, producing up to 750 million tons of renewable ammonia per year in tropical and sub-tropical countries.

India: new state-level hydrogen & ammonia policy, national hydrogen standard

The state government of Andhra Pradesh launched its new hydrogen and ammonia policy in June, including a production target of up to 2 million tonnes per year of renewable ammonia, plus a raft of incentives to attract project developers to the Indian state. The news comes as India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy sets the standard for “green” hydrogen produced in the country.

Green ammonia: Key for the German energy transition

To reach climate neutrality by 2045, Germany needs large amounts of green hydrogen and its derivatives. Green ammonia is set to become the first derivative received in large numbers in the short- to medium term and is set to play a crucial role in the decarbonisation as both transport medium and in direct use. The newly updated German hydrogen strategy highlights this and sets concrete targets and proposes actions. What will be the role of ammonia from Australia and how do we advance collaboration and trade?
