Europe eyes North African H2 imports

Germany is at the forefront of EU plans to strengthens ties with solar-abundant Morocco

The EU’s Hydrogen Strategy, launched in July 2020 along with the Clean Hydrogen Alliance, aims to expand the bloc’s green H2 production capacity by installing 6GW of electrolysers by 2024 and 40GW by 2030. Electrolysers use electricity generated from renewable sources to split water into green hydrogen and oxygen. The EU’s renewable energy resources are insufficient to meet predicted demand, so the bloc is eyeing North Africa, especially Morocco, as a source of green hydrogen. Morocco has a potential installed capacity of 20,000GW of photovoltaic and 6,500MW of wind power, according to government estimates. “Europe believes hydrogen is a key part of our future,” Norbert Barthle, parliament
