MOSTI delves into hydrogen technology for transportation sector

The Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (MOSTI) is placing a strong focus on exploring the potential applications of hydrogen technology, specifically in the mobility sector. Their ultimate goal is to increase the adoption of hydrogen technology in Malaysia by working closely with relevant ministries and agencies, thereby creating a group of end-users in the country.

Recently, MOSTI organized a demonstration session at the lobby of the Investment, Trade, and Industry Ministry, which was attended by 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. The session aimed to showcase the potential of hydrogen technology in the mobility sector in line with Malaysia’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 as outlined in the Hydrogen Economy and Technology Roadmap (HETR).

In addition to raising awareness about hydrogen technology, 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 working together towards this common goal, MOSTI hopes to create a sustainable future for Malaysia while reducing its carbon footprint.
