Oman will build world’s largest green hydrogen plant

Oman currently relies heavily on fossil fuels. But construction of the world’s largest green hydrogen plant, which will use renewable energy to split water in an electrolyser, will turn this around. The plant should be at full capacity by 2038, offering a carbon emission-free replacement for fossil fuels.

Renewables are the cornerstone of global energy transition

Addressing climate change requires decarbonisation of both energy supply and demand. New analysis from IRENA finds that renewable energy, energy efficiency and electrification are at the centre of the global energy transition. Not just for emission reduction, but because of cost advantages and increasing demand.

Floating solar farms generate electricity more efficiently

The cooling effect of water beneath solar panels enables them to generate electricity up to 12.5% more efficiently than rooftop or ground-mounted installations. Meanwhile, the panels’ sheltering effect from sunlight and wind protects the water from climate change impact.

Hydrogen has a vital role in the global energy transition

Green hydrogen is produced by the electrolysis of water using renewable electricity. The global hydrogen capacity increased to 26GW in 2021. The world needs almost 1000 GW by 2050 to meet the demand forecasts. And that’s just for the green hydrogen which will be 75% of global production by 2050.
