Green hydrogen is seen as the fuel of the future. GTE is working on the first green hydrogen plant in Egypt, along the Red Sea coast. The hydrogen plant will run on 100% solar energy with smart and innovative energy storage technology for a 24-hour production cycle. The plant will have a capacity of 350-ton per year. Hydrogen is a clean fuel that, when consumed in a fuel cell, produces only water. The application of hydrogen will help us combat the worldwide challenge of climate change.
Enough sunlight reaches the earth in one hour to power the world for an entire year. Egypt enjoys an abundance of solar radiation. Average daily sunshine totals about 9 to 11 hours per day, with solar direct radiation intensity of about 2 000–3 200 kilowatt hours per square meter (kWh/m²) per year that can be utilised for power generation.
