The Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources “Turkey Hydrogen Technologies Strategy and Roadmap” plan states that green hydrogen generation will be increased in two stages through 2035 and until 2050. Green hydrogen, an environmentally friendly, clean, and renewable energy source, will be the focus.
Fatih Dönmez, minister of energy and natural resources, stated, “We view hydrogen as the energy carrier of the future,” in describing the significance accorded to hydrogen. Green hydrogen is the term used to describe energy produced by electrolyzing water with renewable energy sources. It draws notice because of its environmental activism. Green hydrogen is significant not just for its ability to produce no emissions, but also for its application in areas that require high energy density, simplicity of transit, and affordable storage.
By 2035, the cost of production per kg will be $2.4
By 2053, Turkey hopes to have net-zero emissions. The ratio of hydrogen to natural gas in this direction will reach 12 percent between 2030 and 2053. The cost of producing one kilogram of green hydrogen is anticipated to drop to $ 2.4 by 2035 and to $ 1.2 by 2050. In 2030, 2 gigawatts of power, 5 gigawatts in 2035, and 70 gigawatts in 2053 are projected for the electrolyzer board.
According to Gulmira Rzayeva, an Oxford Institute of Energy Research research assistant who evaluated Turkey’s ambitions for green hydrogen for PV Magazine, “In discussions about Turkey, anything is conceivable. I have faith that this hydrogen objective will be accomplished. Hydrogen pricing forecasts are supported by price trends in renewable energy, water capacity, local demand, and the adaptability of investment assistance programs.”
In the medium term, electrolysis technology will be imported into Turkey, but within the next ten years, innovative investments will be made to manufacture domestic electrolysis, according to Rzayeva. Rzayeva declared
“Turkey currently needs to import electrolyzers if it wants to switch to green hydrogen. In the upcoming years, Turkey will attempt to replicate the solar energy industry’s success. It was importing all of its solar panels ten years ago. Nowadays, local production accounts for up to 90% of solar panel production.”
He claimed that policy uncertainty is the main barrier to Turkey’s hydrogen targets. “The state of the market in a few years is incredibly hazy. It does not have any market-specific rules or designs. Investing in infrastructure for the production and export of hydrogen has a number of risks. Turkey won’t have a clear image for some time, “added said. At Turkey’s Bandrma Energy Base of Enerjisa Production, green hydrogen production has begun.
