Asia Hydrogen

Asia is rich in diverse races, cultures, and languages. Many of the world's major religions came out of Asia including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

Asia has a major influence on world culture and the world's economy. Countries such as Russia, China, Japan and India produce products and services that are used by every nation in the world. Asia is also abundant in natural resources. Oil in the Middle East is a major supplier of much of the world's energy.
Population: 4,164,252,000 

Asia, the world’s largest and most diverse continent. It occupies the eastern four-fifths of the giant Eurasian landmass. Asia is more a geographic term than a homogeneous continent, and the use of the term to describe such a vast area always carries the potential of obscuring the enormous diversity among the regions it encompasses. Asia has both the highest and the lowest points on the surface of Earth, has the longest coastline of any continent, is subject overall to the world’s widest climatic extremes, and, consequently, produces the most varied forms of vegetation and animal life on Earth. In addition, the peoples of Asia have established the broadest variety of human adaptation found on any of the continents.

Hydrogen Future Asia

Could hydrogen be a mechanism for speeding up the energy transition in Southeast Asia (SEA)? Now that carbon reduction is sufficiently valued, the benefits of using hydrogen could outweigh the inherent costs and energy loss incurred during its production. I believe there are five reasons why SEA governments and industry should pay greater attention to the role of hydrogen in the wider energy strategy if they have not already, and why the best time to invest is now.

1. The falling cost of green electricity for hydrogen production
Hydrogen is produced from excess renewable electricity to form ‘green hydrogen’ or turned into ‘blue hydrogen’ natural gas reformation, coupled with carbon capture and storage (CCS). The decreasing cost of green electricity, particularly from solar, could favourably impact the cost of ‘green hydrogen’ over ‘blue hydrogen’, which is currently cheaper. According to the International Energy Agency, the cost of solar photovoltaics has dropped from $250 USD/MWh to about $80 USD/MWh in the region since 2013. Meanwhile, natural gas has returned to around $26-$32 USD/MWh over the same period, according to United Kingdom government energy price statistics.

While 95% of all hydrogen is produced from reformation, ‘green hydrogen’ produced from electrolysis, which is still relatively small in scale, seems to be changing fast. If lower-cost renewable electricity (often low-cost because it has a variable output) is combined with electrolysis to produce ‘green hydrogen’, the price could fall below reformation, depending on transport cost. However, currently this has not yet been achieved anywhere in the world.

Fun Facts about Asia:

- Asia contains around 30% of the world's land area and 60% of the world's population.

- The highest point on earth, Mt. Everest, is in Asia. The lowest point on land, the Dead Sea, is also in Asia.

- Asia is the only continent that shares borders with two other continents; Africa and Europe. It sometimes joins with a third continent, North America, in the winter by ice forming in the Bering Sea.

- Asia is home to two of the three largest economies in the world: China (2nd largest) and Japan (3rd largest). Russia and India are also top 10 world economies.

- Asia is home to many interesting animals including the giant panda, Asian elephant, tiger, Bactrian camel, komodo dragon, and the king cobra.
