Fossil Fuel

Green Ammonia Fuel – The Fuel of the Future?

Green ammonia uses renewable energy to power electrolysis and produces ammonia without carbon emissions. The technology is promising, yet it is still in its early stages. Ongoing investment by the public and private sectors can make it commercially viable.

The G20 Energy Transitions Working Group: A Wasted Opportunity For Progress

The G20 ETWG became the latest conference that failed to produce meaningful fossil fuel phaseout progress.

Shell Pushes LNG Agenda and Backtracks on Sustainability

Oil and gas major Shell has decided to place profits over sustainability, backpedalling from previous commitments to rein in its carbon emissions. Governments must find ways to regulate these fossil fuel-producing giants.

Are Ammonia Fuel Cells the Missing Link For Decarbonisation?

Ammonia fuel cell research is growing as the world searches for viable fossil fuel alternatives. Fuel cells are showing a potential to fill this gap, yet commercial viability remains to be determined.

Ammonia Coal Co-firing: Solution Or Distraction?

Ammonia coal co-firing uses ammonia as a substitute in coal-fired power plants. While it provides a significant benefit of reducing the emissions of coal energy generation, it also creates several concerns for long-term decarbonisation strategies.

How Solving Energy Poverty Will Boost Health and Climate Goals

We speak with Sugandha Srivastav of Oxford University about energy poverty, access and developmental economics.

Ammonia Fuel: Advantages and Disadvantages

Ammonia fuel has several characteristics that make it an excellent low-carbon fuel. However, several disadvantages must be addressed before its wide-scale application.

COP28: Qatari and US LNG Uptick To Throw Climate Goals Into Chaos

COP28 Dubai could be jeopardised by massive new LNG investment by Qatar and the US as the world attempts to move away from fossil fuels.

Ammonia Fuel: Powering Global Decarbonisation Efforts

Ammonia, generally used as a major component of fertiliser, is now being seen as a low-carbon fuel source. Yet, before this becomes viable green ammonia production technology must improve.

Oil Market Forecast 2023: Oil To Peak and Renewables To Accelerate

While the oil market for combustion purposes is likely to peak by 2028, according to the IEA, the Asia-Pacific region will continue to push global oil demand. But, with oil demand declining, will developing Asia continue to lock itself into a carbon-intensive future?

The Future Of Hydrogen: Powering The World

Leading international organisations consider green hydrogen a critical part of the world's future energy mix. Public and private sector support will reduce green hydrogen costs and drive technological advancements, boosting demand.

Hydrogen Cost: Can We Afford It?

Due to an immature market and technology, green hydrogen is not yet cost-competitive with fossil fuel-derived hydrogen. Government policy will be crucial in reducing these costs by facilitating private sector involvement and developing market demand.

Hydrogen Energy: False Hope or Solution?

Energy Tracker Asia speaks with chemical engineer, Paul Martin, at the hydrogen science coalition about the feasibility of hydrogen energy.

Solar Energy Investment is Expected to Overtake Oil Production For the First Time

While investments in fossil fuels are slowing down, the IEA's World Energy Investment Report 2023 says they remain way above the levels needed to reach net-zero by 2050.
