Singapore power plants should be fully hydrogen ready reports Energy Market Authority

Singapore’s power plants should have the ability to be retrofitted to become 100% hydrogen-ready in future, according to the Energy Market Authority (EMA).

Releasing new emission Standards for Power Generation Units, the EMA also stated both Tier 1 and Tier 2 units to be at least 30% hydrogen-ready by volume.

“This will ensure that Singapore’s new power generation units can further reduce their emissions when hydrogen becomes more commercially viable,” it states.

Tier 1 encompasses the entry of lower-carbon intensive generation units, such as more efficient Combined Cycle Gas Turbines (CCGTs) that provide baseload electricity capacity. They need to keep within a 0.355 tCO2e/MWh emission intensity limit, around 10% more carbon-efficient than the existing generation units in Singapore.
