Afrika Verein's Delegation Trip "Hydrogen" to Morocco, 26-30 September

Morocco is considered a pioneer of the green energy transition on the African continent. In 2020, the Moroccan Ministry of Energy presented a national hydrogen strategy that envisages the creation of an industrial value chain around the topic of hydrogen, ammonia and methanol by 2050. In the same year, Morocco and Germany signed a declaration of intent to build an alliance for the development of a power-to-X sector in Morocco. The Kingdom can play an essential role for European energy supply in the future.

The Afrika-Verein with AHK Morocco and L'Institut de Recherche en Énergie Solaire et Énergies Nouvelles (IRESEN) therefore invites you to the
