Hy24 and Masdar signed an agreement to foster large-scale green hydrogen projects

Masdar Hy24 Partners

At the close of COP28, Masdar and Hy24 have announced a strategic agreement to jointly develop and invest in major international green hydrogen production projects.

The latest climate conference, which outlined a transition away from fossil fuels, was an opportunity for Masdar to stock up on contracts. the company is one of the world leaders in renewable energy production, with a portfolio of projects amounting to 20 GW. An agreement has therefore been signed between Masdar with Hy24, manager of the world’s largest investment fund dedicated to low-carbon hydrogen (the Clean H2 Infra Fund). They will both co-invest to accelerate the deployment of major green hydrogen projects. These joint opportunities could go as high as €2 billion of investment for Masdar over the next five years (about $2.2 billion).

Masdar and Hy24 will study opportunities across the entire Power-to-X value chain (which involves the production of green hydrogen by electrolysis using renewable energy), as well as the production of its derivatives such as green ammonia, e-methanol, sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) and liquid hydrogen.

For Pierre-Etienne Franc, the CEO of Hy24, “this agreement demonstrates the strong potential for France and the United Arab Emirates to jointly develop large-scale decarbonisation projects.” The world regions concerned will be Europe, North and South America, Asia, Oceania, the Middle East and North Africa.
