New Zealand is the host economy for APEC in 2021. To enrich the policy discussion on one of the key themes for APEC21 — inclusive and sustainable growth, New Zealand plans to undertake an APEC project on green hydrogen.
MBIE intends to apply for APEC funding for this green hydrogen project. As part of the APEC funding application process, New Zealand will need to scope the project and prepare a concept note and then a project proposal for APEC funding application.
This procurement relates to the consultancy service required to undertake a study into some aspects of hydrogen use in the APEC region, which would inform the scoping of the APEC green hydrogen project.
MBIE in this RFQ is purchasing consultancy services to undertake a desktop study on approaches to hydrogen in APEC region, to assess whether countries are committed to green, as opposed to blue or brown hydrogen or indifferent.
The value of the contract for this piece of work is a maximum of $50,000. This work is intended to contribute towards other projects that will be developed as part of New Zealand’s commitment as host for APEC 2021.
Different approaches should be categorised and then the value of adopting a green standard or certification should be considered.
