Distributed energy and fuel supply - because it's just not efficient to build electricity networks all across the Asia-Pacific
Now that hydrogen (and battery) storage is available, renewable energy is modular and scalable.
While traditional coal and gas-fired power systems need to be very big to be economic, and need big systems of poles and wires to deliver electricity (very expensive to build and maintain), renewable energy provides a lot more scalability and flexibility.
Across the Asia-Pacific, as economies grow and communities develop, 'energy poverty' is a major issue; how can communities currently without power, or relying on diesel engines for electricity, get access to reliable, modern, carbon-free power and fuel?
Now, using renewable hydrogen-ammonia supply chains, it's not necessary to spend hundreds of billions on wires and poles to distribute electric power for homes, industry, transport and freight.
Renewable ammonia can be delivered to and stored at 'Distributed Energy Hubs'. These Hubs will provide clean energy security for months, even years if needed. They will deliver electricity to a local network (power for houses, businesses and factories), electricity for battery-electric vehicles, and hydrogen for hydrogen-electric vehicles.
