Green Hydrogen Vision

The Kingdom of Morocco aims to create an economic and industrial sector around green molecules, particularly hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol, to consolidate its energy transition by contributing to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting decarbonisation in partner countries.

Morocco has exceptional potential in renewable energy sources, which combined with its expertise will provide momentum to the green hydrogen development in the country. The aim is to use green hydrogen production to promote its economy and strengthen energy security.

The government envisages that green hydrogen production will add value to renewable electricity production, in particular its transformation into products with higher energy density. The demand potential in large economies and markets like Europe represents an opportunity to export green energy. Establishing a national industry based on green hydrogen is also aimed at replacing ammonia imports with local production.

“We can develop win-win alliances and position ourselves as an African green hydrogen hub.” Samir Rachidi, Director general, IRESEN
