Malaysia's state energy company Petroliam Nasional (Petronas) and Japanese oil giant Eneos are exploring opportunities to develop a clean hydrogen supply chain between the two countries.
The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding to form a technical and commercial study of a supply chain that includes the production and transportation of hydrogen.
Energy company Uniper and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have entered into an agreement for developing the production of green hydrogen at the Uniper location on Maasvlakte.
These plans are in line with the planned new hydrogen infrastructure that and the growing demand for sustainable hydrogen from the Rotterdam petrochemical industry.
Jo Bamford, heir to the JCB construction equipment empire, has launched a hydrogen investment fund aiming to raise £1bn to plough into green production of the fuel.

Chile is considering 10 green hydrogen projects in a tender for a total of $50mn in financing aimed at accelerating the country's transition away from fossil fuels.
The tender will award a maximum of $30mn to any one project, so the outcome expected to be announced in December will result in at least two winners. Eligible projects must have at least 10MW of electrolyzer capacity and start operating no later than December 2025.
Australian energy infrastructure company APA Group has received USD 222,000 (EUR 187,000) from the Western Australia government to help test the ability of 43 km of the Parmelia gas pipeline to transport up to 100% hydrogen.
The funding has been awarded under the second round of the government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund after promising results from the initial phase of testing, which confirmed the technical viability of the pipeline to carry hydrogen.
Five Greek hydrogen projects (White Dragon, Blue Med, Green HIPo, H2CAT TANKS, H2CEM – TITAN) have moved closer to European Union funding after the country’s energy ministry approved their participation in the first wave of important projects of common European interest (IPCEI).
In the next stage of assessment, the projects need to “prove to the European Commission they are technically and financially mature, in accordance with the IPCEI criteria”.
