Tunisia is strategically positioning itself as a major player in the production of green hydrogen.
The North African country is focusing on establishing a hydrogen infrastructure based on renewable energies. The great production potential through solar and wind energy as well as the geographical proximity with connection to the European gas grid form ideal conditions for this.
“Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH” (*The German Association for International Collaboration*) supports the promotion of H2 value chains with the programme Green Hydrogen for Sustainable Growth and a Decarbonised Economy in Tunisia.
Moreover, for contextual knowledge transfer – especially for Tunisian women in the energy sector – the project Establishment of a Bavarian-Tunisian Technology and Innovation Hub for Green Hydrogen was launched in May 2022, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development and the Bavarian State Chancellery.
In May 2023, Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH welcomed a 25-member women`s delegation of representatives of Tunisian authorities and public institutions to Puchheim for an informal company visit coordinated by the NGO “Women Engage for a Common Future”.
At the Bavarian premium supplier of emission-free hydrogen fuel cells with a 25-year market presence, visitors were given an insight into high-tech production and application for stationary and mobility segments. At the same time, the networking meeting laid the foundations for possible future strategic partnerships.
