Kazakhstan and France to forge partnership in hydrogen energy development

Nur-Sultan, May 6 - Neftegaz.RU. The Kazakh Embassy in France and Kazakh Invest national company organized a webinar to explore the prospects for cooperation between Kazakhstan and France in hydrogen energy development, reports the Astana Times.

The webinar that gathered Kazakh and French government representatives and experts was designed to share the experience of French companies working in the hydrogen sector and invite them to participate in developing the sector in Kazakhstan.
Ambassador of Kazakhstan to France Jean Galiev said:
  • This area is of growing importance for Kazakhstan given its commitment to decarbonize the economy and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060
Clean hydrogen is currently enjoying unprecedented political and business momentum, with the number of policies and projects around the world expanding rapidly.
Task Force Managing Director at Kazakh Invest Azamat Kozhanov noted:
  • Today, Kazakhstan is studying the possibility of implementing large projects in the production of green hydrogen
  • Probably, we are now living through the last decade of high oil prices and we are determined to fit into the new global supply chains of the fuel energy industry
  • The strategy for hydrogen energy development is expected to be announced in the next 2 or 3 months
In 2021, Kazakhstan and France signed the road map for the economic and investment cooperation until 2030, where the development of technological and environmental projects is among the priorities.

Kazakhstan wants to explore possibilities for hydrogen production and use, a topic that was raised by President Tokayev last year.
He said back then that the world has entered a new phase where global energy begins to shift from fossil fuels to renewables, hydrogen and nuclear energies.

According to Tokayev, Kazakhstan has the scientific capacity and the qualified experts to create an industrial cluster of hydrogen energy production.
