Sarawak is poised to begin large-scale commercial production of green hydrogen by 2027 towards promoting renewable energy and reducing the carbon footprint.
Noting that Sarawak will earn revenue from hydrogen production, the Sarawak Premier, YAB Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari bin Tun Datuk Abang Haji Openg was once quoted saying that Sarawak is working closely with Japan to produce green hydrogen for domestic use as well as export to Japan and Singapore.
As Sarawak is embarking on creating a new revenue based on green hydrogen, this is an opportunity for the youths in the present as well as the future to pursue various career pathways across the value chain, depending on their skills, competencies, interests, and goals.
For instance, among the career paths in this sector includes renewable energy technician, electrolysis engineer, hydrogen storage specialist, hydrogen distribution manager, fuel cell developer, hydrogen project manager, hydrogen policy analyst, or green hydrogen entrepreneur.
Besides being in demand, these careers can be rewarding and fulfilling opportunities for personal and professional growth and impact.
However, recruiting and training new talent is not without its challenges.
