Solar Hydrogen Production in Algeria: Perspectives and Applications

  • S. Labed
Part of the NATO Science for Peace and Security Series C: Environmental Security book series (NAPSC)

This article considers Algeria as a case study for the evaluation of the hydrogen production potential when using both decentralized and centralized solar PV installations. An in-depth analysis is proposed herein and concerns some figures of merit of solar PV technology and hydrogen production with today and future technologies. Cost of energy production is also viewed in detail at the light of a life cycle cost analysis that targets a typical solar PV – hydrogen unit production. Security aspects of hydrogen production, transport and use are also discussed, especially those regarding the option of H2 export to Europe via the Algerian pipelines of gas across Spain and Italy.
