Colombia to launch road map to develop hydrogen as fuel -minister

Colombia will launch plans in September to develop the production and use of hydrogen as a long-term clean energy source, the Minister of Mines and Energy said on Tuesday, while voicing hope this year's oil and gas auction will be successful.

The South American country will publish a road map to establish over the next 30 years the production, use and export of hydrogen as a clean energy source for use in transport and industry, among other sectors, Diego Mesa told Reuters in an interview.

He said the plan will receive high investment - without providing specific details - and Colombia would offer incentives, including tax deductions, to encourage the participation of the private sector.
