In accordance with the country’s new hydrogen policy, Turkey is on the list of Germany’s green hydrogen supplier countries. Turkey, Norway, Iceland, Australia, and Chile have all been identified as prospective providers of hydrogen derived from renewable energy sources.
Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Transport stated in mid-May that it will invest $9.4 billion in the construction of 62 large-scale hydrogen projects. According to this policy, Germany expects hydrogen consumption to rise from 90 to 110 terawatt-hours by 2030. To meet this need, electrolyzers with a total capacity of up to 5 GW are to be developed in Germany by 2030, including the offshore and onshore wind energy output required to power electrolysis.
Turkey is considered to respond swiftly to generating renewable hydrogen due to its renewables track record and hotspots for solar and wind both onshore and offshore. Although Turkey does not presently have a national hydrogen policy, many people believe that green hydrogen exports will be possible over the next ten years.
The International Energy Agency predicts that by 2050, the output of hydrogen will have increased to 528 million tonnes for use as a fuel in the shipping, air transport, and heavy industry sectors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, renewable hydrogen will supply around 7 per cent of ultimate energy usage, primarily in industrial process heat.
