Germany is committed to working with Morocco to build a reliable green energy network.
It is making investments in green hydrogen manufacturing as well as solar, wind, and marine energy projects. It aims to enhance energy connectivity between Morocco and Germany by taking advantage of their close proximity.
An energy collaboration called PAREMA between Germany and Morocco intends to aid the country in making the transition to a sustainable economy. This is accomplished through working together on research, development, education, and know-how. The agreement also paves the way for the integration of German energy companies and the development of a network of collaborations between academic institutions and German businesses to advance know-how and technology transfer.
In order to achieve industrial and transportation decarbonization and lessen reliance on Russian gas, Germany is establishing a national hydrogen plan. The nation is investing in the domestic production of this gas, but it also aims to ensure supply by making investments elsewhere.
Because to its geographic location, sun, wind, and infrastructure, Morocco is one of the preferred locations for this technique. According to studies, Morocco would be a crucial supplier of environmentally friendly hydrogen to Europe in general and Germany in particular due to the price of hydrogen produced in the Kingdom being among the most competitive in the world. King Mohammed VI has made the decision to take action to include Morocco in the group of nations with significant potential for the production of green hydrogen. Thus, he has given instructions to create an operation and a reward dubbed “Offer Morocco” that span the full value chain of the green hydrogen industry. This comprises the institutional and regulatory framework as well as the infrastructural plan required to guarantee the growth of this industry in the nation of North Africa.
Pipelines are the best way to transfer hydrogen, which is a dilemma for nations that produce it. Although it may require modification, Morocco is considering using the Maghreb-Europe pipeline to export its hydrogen to the European market. Once it is completed in 2030, the H2Med pipeline will be able to transport up to 2 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen annually.
