Energy Connectivity In The Pacific: The Potential Role Of Low And Zero Carbon Fuels, Including Hydrogen, In Regional Energy Trade

This course discusses the potential role of "green fuels" in enabling the decarbonisation of island energy systems.


The transportation and power sectors are among the largest sources of carbon emissions and other harmful pollutants. Fulfilling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #7 (“SDG 7”), and reaching targets of sustainability and renewables development, will require decarbonizing the power and transportation sectors  while also reducing energy consumption. In this course, we explore the role of “green fuels” (such as hydrogen, ammonia and others) in the decarbonization process, explore roadmap and strategic plans centered on regional collaboration, and highlight tools and mechanisms that could be relied upon in the planning process.
