Potential blue and green hydrogen developments in the Arab region

May 2022

Diversifying the energy mix is a key aspect of the energy transition. Beyond accelerating the uptake of renewable energy and electrifying relevant sectors, alternative energy carriers including hydrogen and hydrogen derivatives should be explored to ensure the transition is just and sustainable. The present publication focuses on existing and planned hydrogen developments in the Arab region and explores the major challenges and opportunities of hydrogen production and use to support the region’s energy transition within the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The report also considers recent decisions by several States to introduce net-zero GHG emission targets by 2050 and discusses the implications for sustainable hydrogen production.
