ADIPEC discusses the role of hydrogen in the renewable energy mix

Abu Dhabi (Al-Ittihad) The ADIPEC 2021 conference, which takes place next month in Abu Dhabi, brings together hundreds of ministers, decision-makers and business leaders from around the world to exchange views on: How hydrogen can deliver a comprehensive, clean and yet integrated approach to the various energy sectors in the Middle East and North Africa region. The Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference “ADIPEC 2021” will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the State, may God protect him, from 15 to 18 November 2021 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC), and hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company ( ADNOC) with the support of the Ministry of Energy and Industry, Abu Dhabi Chamber and the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi. According to the latest Goldman Sachs report, green hydrogen could meet up to 25% of the world’s energy requirements in less than 30 years and with a market value of more than $10 trillion. This year’s ADIPEC conference devoted seven sessions to hydrogen during its strategic conference to emphasize the importance of hydrogen in the diversified energy sector, and to address the challenges and opportunities for producing green and blue hydrogen on an industrial scale. Sessions highlight important industry topics such as: building a sustainable hydrogen economy, developing a policy framework to promote hydrogen deployment, reallocating value chains, managing supply and demand dynamics and upgrading.

“ADIPEC 2021 provides an ideal platform for the global energy industry to gain key insights, share knowledge with decision-makers, technologists, scientists and companies at the forefront of the hydrogen industry, and define business models,” said Christopher Hudson, Head of Global Energy at dmg events, organizer of ADIPEC. and the new strategies required to unlock, create and increase the value of hydrogen’s potential as a clean energy source in the future.”

ADIPEC also provides an ideal platform to review the UAE’s strategic initiative to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 and its road map for a sustainable energy future, in conjunction with governments around the world implementing plans for decarbonization, while ensuring the provision of affordable energy for all, in addition to the production of integrated green hydrogen, which is part of It is integral to its future ambitions, as the UAE positions itself as a low-cost producer and exporter of blue and green hydrogen, as well as green ammonia.
In the same context, work is already underway on giant projects such as the green ammonia project with a capacity of 2 gigawatts by the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) and Abu Dhabi Ports, where the project will produce green hydrogen and process it into liquid ammonia used in ships as fuel for storage and for export.
Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Industrial Zone (KIZAD) has also announced plans to set up a $1 billion green ammonia plant, which will produce 200,000 tons of green ammonia from 40,000 tons of green hydrogen.

production cost

Hudson said: “According to the latest Forbes magazine report, industry experts have agreed that a price of around $2 per kilogram of hydrogen can be affordable for everyone. ACWA Power in Saudi Arabia will cut the current cost in half, bringing the price of one kilogram of green hydrogen to less than two dollars by 2026, thus increasing production volume 50 times.”
“In addition to significant investment, some of the key issues that will be discussed at ADIPEC 2021 are the price of producing green hydrogen from renewable energy, as well as how quickly new technology can be developed,” Hudson added.
ADIPEC is the world’s most influential live and personal meeting place for energy companies and professionals, the ADIPEC Strategic Conference brings together more than 8000 industry professionals from around the world, including nearly 1,000 ministers, CEOs, decision makers, influencers and influencers to play a key role In developing the thought leadership, direction and strategies that will shape the industry’s response to the realities of the energy transition.
