KUCHING, May 4: The Asia Pacific Green Hydrogen Conference and Exhibition 2024 (APGH 2024) is critical in driving innovation and attracting investment in green hydrogen to Malaysia.

Deputy Prime Minister Dato Sri Fadillah Yusof, who is also Minister of Energy Transition & Water Transformation Malaysia, said Malaysia is actively seeking international collaboration to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy, as hydrogen holds immense potential as the future of clean energy.


He said this in a statement following a courtesy visit by APGH 2024 organiser Borneo Business Connect Sdn Bhd led by Minister for Energy and Environmental Sustainability Sarawak Datuk Dr Hazland Abang Hipni at his office in Putrajaya today.

The discussion during the courtesy visit centred on the upcoming APGH 2024 conference, where Borneo Business Connect Sdn Bhd emphasised their unwavering commitment to accelerating Malaysia’s green hydrogen and energy transition goals.

Borneo Business Connect Sdn Bhd also outlined plans to facilitate knowledge sharing, forge strategic partnerships, and showcase the latest advancements in technology, innovation, and sustainable solutions for green hydrogen production and utilisation.

Meanwhile, Dr Hazland said through the Post-Covid Development Strategy (PCDS), Sarawak is actively pursuing initiatives like hydrogen development, renewable energy sources, carbon capture and storage, and sustainable aviation fuel.

“These efforts directly contribute to reducing our carbon footprint and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. At APGH 2024, our invited international experts will share their global insights to add to our collective knowledge and skills base, focusing on the hydrogen market,” he added.
