Algeria is developing an energy roadmap to expand renewable power generation and emerge as a leading green hydrogen exporter, according to the Oil Minister.

Mohammed Arkab told an economic seminar in Italy on Friday that the North African Arab country is pushing ahead with projects to boost renewable energy power generation to 15,000 megawatts (MW), or nearly 30 percent of the total energy mix, by 2035.

Arkab, quoted by Elkhabar and other Algerian newspapers on Sunday, said the Oil Ministry is putting the “finishing touches” on a long-term energy strategy that takes advantage of Algeria’s massive natural resources.

Arkab stated that Algeria is committed to becoming a leading green hydrogen exporter, leveraging its vast natural resources, including substantial natural gas and water reserves, abundant sunlight, a skilled workforce, and an advanced gas distribution network.
