Why Green Hydrogeen?

Hydrogen is rarely present in its pure state and enters into the composition of water and hydrocarbons, its production and its designation differ according to its origin. The production from hydrocarbons causes an emission of greenhouse gases. this is why its called the gray hydrogen. However, Green hydrogen is produced through the process of electrolysis, which involves splitting water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity from renewable energy sources like solar and wind power. The resulting hydrogen can be stored and transported to be used as a clean energy source for a variety of applications. Storage and transportation of green hydrogen present unique challenges due to the low energy density of hydrogen gas. This requires specialized infrastructure and equipment to compress, liquefy, or store hydrogen in other forms like ammonia or methanol. However, these challenges are being addressed through the development of new technologies and infrastructure for the production, storage, and transportation of green hydrogen.

 

Green hydrogen has a wide range of applications, including power generation, transportation, and industrial processes. In power generation, green hydrogen can be used in fuel cells or gas turbines to produce electricity with zero emissions. In transportation, green hydrogen can be used as a fuel for fuel cell electric vehicles, which emit only water vapor. In industry, green hydrogen can be used to power industrial processes like steel or cement production, which are currently highly dependent on fossil fuels. Overall, it has the potential to play a critical role in the transition to a low-carbon economy, providing a reliable source of clean energy to complement other renewable sources like solar and wind power.

 

Green hydrogen has gained significant international attention as a potential key player in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Countries around the world are exploring the production, storage, and application of green hydrogen as a clean energy source.

 

International collaborations and initiatives have been launched to support the development of green hydrogen infrastructure and technology, including the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Energy Working Group. These efforts demonstrate the growing recognition of the potential of green hydrogen to address global energy and climate challenges.

 

Kingdom of Morocco has the potential to become a leader in the production and export of green hydrogen, given its abundant renewable energy resources, strategic geographic location, and commitment to decarbonization. To achieve this potential, Morocco will need to continue to invest in green hydrogen research, development, and deployment, and collaborate with international partners to develop a new technologies and infrastructure for the production, storage, and transportation of green hydrogen.
