A pioneering project in Chiang Mai has hosted a summit to lay the foundation stone of the first “green hydrogen” refuelling station in Southeast Asia.
Phi Suea house is an off-grid, solar-hydrogen micro grid residential project, the first of its kind in the world. The technology uses excess solar energy to produce hydrogen from electrolysers, which split water into its components, hydrogen and oxygen.
The highlight of the summit was the symbolic laying of the foundation stone for the first green hydrogen refueling station in Southeast Asia, which is to be jointly developed in collaboration with local universities.
Phi Suea House project owner, Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, announced the initiative and invited all institutes and universities to “join together, gain knowledge and participate in the planning and deployment of this future technology, which is fast developing in Europe, US and Japan”.
More than 200 professionals from industry, academia and government converged for the event to discuss the latest developments in the field of hydrogen energy technology around the world. The summit was organized by the Phi Suea House and supported by hydrogen energy technology company Enapter.
The event also discussed in depth Thailand 4.0 and the path to sustainability and a new energy future – the green hydrogen refueling initiative ties into this theme and aims to develop the knowledge and framework necessary for Thailand to become a leader in hydrogen energy technology.
