Sustainability Research at the National University of Singapore

Today, humanity faces the consequences of two centuries of exponential economic growth powered by fossil fuels – climate change, environmental degradation, and the combined effects of ever-increasing energy demand and diminishing fossil fuel reserves. There is a clear and urgent demand for scientific breakthroughs to mitigate these issues by replacing fossil fuels, particularly coal and oil, with sustainable green fuels. In this regard, carbon capture, utilization and storage, and hydrogen economy have emerged as critical topics to develop practical solutions. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the NUS sustainability research with special focus on the research activities of NUS Green Energy Program and the Hydrogen Centre for Innovations.
