Morocco is continuing its momentum in the development of the energy sector, particularly that of green hydrogen, commonly known as Power-to-X, which constitutes an ecological source of energy par excellence.
With its ambitious energy transition policy and massive investments in the field of renewable energies, Morocco is on the right track to become independent from foreign energy imports and considerably reduce consumer electricity prices.
According to the German cooperation agency GIZ, the kingdom will soon have the first high-volume green hydrogen production plant in Africa. The organization reports that after wind and solar energy, a study on the potential of “Power-to-X” in Morocco was carried out and a roadmap for the development of a green hydrogen economy has been developed.
This molecule, essential to the energy transition, is more than ever a promising and future-oriented solution for Morocco. It can be transformed into electricity or fuel, representing a viable alternative to fossil fuels which still remain largely the major source of energy for many societies.
In the future, the kingdom could even become an energy exporter and, with the help of green hydrogen, give a boost to the European and German energy transition, underlines the same source, noting that its geographical proximity with Europe is an asset in this regard.
