SRI LANKA NATIONAL HYDROGEN ROADMAP
As a recognition of the growing requirements to combat climate change, Sri Lanka has revised its NDCs to meet the global expectations and objectives. To achieve these aggressive targets, rapid renewable energy must be deployed as well as advanced technology to manage the associated intermittencies, ensure grid stability and energy independence.
Sri Lanka views green hydrogen as the critical enabler of renewable integration and sustainable energy storage. In addition to domestic decarbonisation, Sri Lanka has the potential to contribute to global decarbonisation effort by producing green hydrogen from excess renewable energy. The country has an abundance of excess renewable energy, including solar, wind, and hydroelectric power, and it could use this capacity to produce green hydrogen for domestic use and export.
