Tunisia is the central point in the Mediterranean and offers huge potential for green electricity, hydrogen and ammonia for its own domestic needs and for export between Africa and Europe. The country’s very high solar resource enables reliable, low-cost solar production, and the presence of a pipeline that extends from Tunisia to Italy is ideal for leveraging FuelCell Energy’s electrolysis platform to generate hydrogen and transport it into Europe.
"Achieving the ambitious goals of the North African and European clean energy ecosystem hinges on innovative developers like TuNur who are building green energy and hydrogen production solutions,” said Jason Few, President and CEO of FuelCell Energy.
“Working together with TuNur, we are eager to help support the energy transition while advancing regional climate goals using our differentiated electrolysis platform to produce low-to-zero-carbon hydrogen. Our solutions will further North Africa and the EU’s goal toward greater energy independence and security.”
“Tunisia has important targets for renewable energy and is perfectly positioned to be a key energy hub in the Mediterranean region by utilizing renewable energy to supply its own energy needs and in parallel for exportation to Europe, creating a new sustainable export industry,” said Daniel Rich, CEO of TuNur.
“We look forward to working with FuelCell Energy to integrate their low-to-zero-carbon and hydrogen production technology into projects to provide low-cost, clean energy to consumers in Europe and North Africa.”
