Tunisia is able to export 5.5 million tonnes to 6 million tonnes of green hydrogen to Europe by 2050, said Director General of the Electricity and Energy Transition at the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy Belhassen Chiboub.
This quantity would represent Tunisia’s share in Europe’s planned imports from the region (Tunisia, Algeria and Libya) – a total of 11 million tonnes of green hydrogen), the official said as he referred to figures released by the European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative – a group of European energy infrastructure operators with a vision for a dedicated hydrogen transport infrastructure across Europe.
Tunisia has the necessary assets to produce green hydrogen at competitive costs in the short and medium run and become Europe’s supplier. Tunisia has “excellent” and “complementary” renewable energies, including solar and wind power. It is also located near Europe where demand is high, Chiboub highighted.
