Turkey is in talks with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to collaborate on two groundbreaking projects: green hydrogen production and the establishment of an offshore wind farm. These initiatives represent significant strides in the renewable energy efforts of both countries and aim to strengthen economic cooperation.
This energy collaboration is part of a broader agreement initiated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, encompassing energy cooperation valued at approximately $29.7 billion.
A central component of this partnership is Turkey’s ambitious energy transformation project, which seeks to generate 3.5 gigawatts of solar energy and 1.5 gigawatts of wind energy annually.
However, it’s the prospects of green hydrogen production and offshore wind energy that are generating considerable interest.
Green Hydrogen Production Powered by Wind Energy Energy Minister Alparslan Bayraktar has disclosed ongoing discussions about green hydrogen production, with a primary focus on using wind energy as the energy source. Emirati companies engaged in these discussions are eager to explore the potential of Turkey’s energy transformation project.
Hydrogen, as a clean energy carrier, has the capacity to revolutionize various sectors, from transportation to industry. Producing it from renewable sources like wind power aligns with global efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
