Singapore’s piped town gas producer City Energy and Malaysian clean energy solutions provider Gentari have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly conduct feasibility studies of a hydrogen supply chain from Malaysia to Singapore, City Energy said on April 18.

“As City Energy is the sole piped town gas provider for more than 880,000 homes and businesses, City Energy is well placed to establish a hydrogen supply for the future production of our town gas. We are excited to collaborate with Gentari to develop a hydrogen supply chain which will contribute to our nation’s hydrogen strategy,” said Perry Ong, CEO of City Energy.

Hydrogen is the largest component in town gas produced at City Energy’s Senoko Gasworks plant, making the company one of the largest last-mile carriers of hydrogen in Singapore. The collaboration with Gentari follows City Energy’s ongoing feasibility studies with leading industry partners and institutes of higher learning to explore alternative sources of hydrogen, the company said.

“While Gentari aims to become the go-to industry partner for clean hydrogen, we want to be able to provide integrated clean energy solutions for customers in Asia Pacific, among others. The collaboration with City Energy is taking a step towards the right path in providing that solution. We believe this partnership will be the first of many in Singapore. We are committed to support Singapore in achieving net zero emissions by 2050,” said Michele Azalbert, Gentari’s chief hydrogen officer.

Gentari, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas, aims to produce up to 1.2mn metric tons/year of clean hydrogen to address the future increase of clean energy demand.

City Energy and Gentari also signed a second MoU to work together to allow customers to access both parties’ electric vehicle charging network so that EV drivers can have a seamless cross-border charging experience across Singapore and Malaysia.
