MOSTI delves into hydrogen technology for transportation sector

Malaysia’s Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (MOSTI) is focusing on the potential applications of hydrogen technology, particularly in the mobility sector. The aim is to increase the adoption of hydrogen technology in the country by collaborating with relevant ministries and agencies, thereby creating a group of end-users in Malaysia.

Recently, MOSTI organized a demonstration session at the lobby of the Investment, Trade, and Industry Ministry, where Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli, Natural Resources and Environmental Sustainability Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, and Investment, Trade, and Industry Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz were present. The session showcased the potential of hydrogen technology in the mobility sector in alignment with Malaysia’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 as outlined in the Hydrogen Economy and Technology Roadmap (HETR).

MOSTI also plans to collaborate with the private sector to establish a mobile hydrogen refueling station. This initiative will not only highlight the capabilities and expertise of local talent but also position Malaysia as a leader in the hydrogen economy. By investing in hydrogen technology and promoting its adoption in various sectors such as transportation, energy generation, and industrial processes, MOSTI aims to drive Malaysia’s transition towards a cleaner and more sustainable future.
