Trinidad and Tobago is considering relying heavily on hydrogen in the future. Hydrogen featured in Prime Minister Keith Rowley’s speech on energy as the country explores feasibility and regulatory aspects of a hydrogen economy.
Hydrogen has been identified as a forerunner in many transition strategies across the world and Rowley is looking for Caribbean islands to seek a potentially lucrative opportunity to invest in alternative fuel.
In preparation for this, Trinidad and Tobago’s Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries (MEEI) has established a Multidisciplinary Committee dedicated to developing an economy heavily reliant on hydrogen.
The hydrogen will be generated on an industrial scale from carbon-neutral and renewable sources of electricity using an electrolysis process.
