The Malaysian government has set a goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050, in line with the Hydrogen Economy and Technology Roadmap (HETR) outlined by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI). MOSTI is currently investigating the potential use of hydrogen technology, especially in the mobility sector.

To achieve this goal, MOSTI is engaging with relevant ministries and agencies to create a pool of end users. The ministry recently held a demonstration session at the Ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry lobby to showcase the potential of hydrogen technology in the mobility sector. The session was attended by Ministers Rafizi Ramli, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, and Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz.

MOSTI plans to collaborate with the private sector to establish a mobile hydrogen filling station, demonstrating the capabilities of local talent in driving the hydrogen economy. This initiative aligns with HETR’s aim to promote sustainable transportation through hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).

The successful implementation of these initiatives will contribute towards Malaysia’s efforts to become a global leader in clean energy technology while also creating new job opportunities for local businesses and researchers.
