Establishing Chiang Mai as a Green Hydrogen Energy Knowledge Center” is a joint project of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Energy Research and Development Institute of Nakornping (ERDI) of the Chiang Mai University, and the industrial partner Enapter. Its purpose is to set up the first knowledge centre for green hydrogen in Thailand. For green hydrogen systems to achieve a breakthrough in Southeast Asia and contribute to the success of the global energy transition, a massive expansion of education and training capacities is required to impart the latest knowledge and techniques. This project will develop training courses and materials, provide hydrogen systems for hands-on training sessions and conduct the courses during the project period and beyond. The Chiang Mai hydrogen knowledge hub will consist of a professional training center with state-of-the-art technology and a demonstration site unique in Thailand in terms of technology set-up and certification. The green hydrogen prototype area of the Phi Suea House, named by the European Union as the only flagship hydrogen valley project in SE Asia, will be a part of the partnership. It is the common goal of all partners to make Chiang Mai a knowledge centre for green hydrogen energy.
