Financing and mobilising hydrogen at large scale


Hydrogen hubs that are developed in the next five years and prove to be commercially viable could potentially be listed which would fund the next wave of capital expenditure (CAPEX).

Speaking to H2 View’s delegates, following gasworld’s Asia-Pacific Industrial Gases Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Amrit Singh Deo, Senior Managing Director, FTI Consulting, said, “These hubs are going to be CAPEX intensive and need to be built in phases. So build the first phase, with offtake support, before you scale up. The trick will be to get these offtake agreements signed.”

A public-private partnership to accelerate the hydrogen economy would build $5bn in enterprise value, he said. “Such a model is the way to go, so that risks and payoffs are shared equally,” he said.

Drawing on designs for the Green Kochi Hydrogen Hub (GKH2), he said large-scale hubs will be commercially viable with offtake prices between $4-6.25 from 2024-2030.
