The Minister announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Singapore to advance cooperation on low-emissions technologies and solutions. 

This MoU will strengthen Australia and Singapore’s extensive bilateral partnership and maximise the Australian Government’s technology-focused approach to reducing emissions. This includes cooperating on the key technology priorities recently expressed in the government’s first Low Emissions Technology Statement

It demonstrates the leading roles our countries are playing in the global challenges to reduce emissions and support an effective climate change response. 

Under the MoU, Australia and Singapore will share technical knowledge and experience, and collaborate on the development of new technologies that reduce emissions. Priority cooperation areas include:

  • hydrogen
  • carbon capture use and storage (CCUS)
  • renewable energy trade
  • measurement 
  • reporting verification (MRV) of emissions. 

Officials from both countries will progress work under the MoU through annual meetings.
