US contractor KBR has been contracted to perform a study in Trinidad and Tobago to analyse opportunities in establishing a green hydrogen economy in the country.

The study will look into supply and demand dynamics, transportation, and end use applications, assess the repurposing of existing facilities for hydrogen production, and identify areas of development in existing infrastructure and policy.

"This study builds on KBR's proud history of supporting Trinidad and Tobago's advancing focus on clean energy solutions – establishing itself as a leader in the regional hydrogen economy," said Jay Ibrahim, president of Sustainable Technology Solutions at KBR.

"The recent COP26 Summit brought into focus the threat of climate change on island nations. The opportunity to help the country meet its carbon reduction and sustainability targets firmly aligns with KBR’s commitment of driving innovative solutions to support sustainability."

KBR will work with the National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago Limited and other stakeholders as part of an ongoing technical cooperation financed by the Inter-American Development Bank.

The assessment will include recommendations for a technical implementation plan and a roadmap to net zero through technological innovation.
