• SPE Live Distinguished Lecturer Series: The Role of CCS and Hydrogen in the Energy Transition

    Contrary to popular belief, the ongoing energy transition from a high- to low-carbon economy requires more than harnessing renewable energies. Currently, only 11% of global energy consumption comes from renewable energy while 85% come from fossil fuels. The current pace of installing renewable power plants is inadequate for nations to achieve net-zero by the second half of the century. Achieving net-zero will require each country to decarbonize all three major energy consumptions sectors: power, transport, and industry.

    There are essentially five ways to achieve this. They are renewable energy, carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen, nuclear energy and reducing energy demand. How each country will utilize these ways to go through the energy transition will depend on its specific energy mix and the need to balance energy security, affordability, and sustainability.

    During this SPE Live, the SPE distinguished lecturer, Hon Chung Lau, shows how CCS and hydrogen are key to achieving net-zero in all three energy consumption sectors.
