Yash Sheth has his expertise in renewable and sustainable energy engineering through providing sustainable ideas to address the issue of climate change and resource management. He has been working as a renewable energy and energy efficiency engineer straight after completing his Masters in Renewable and Sustainable Energy from Murdoch University, Australia and Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering from India. Moreover, Yash has a passion for writing and innovation, and got his first book, titled, ‘7 Commitments I made to Myself’ published in the year 2018 and has a patent under publication for electric two-wheelers with the India Patent office.
Statement of Problem: Currently, production of green hydrogen fuel is an extremely energy intensive and expensive process. To be deployed at scale, it will need to compete with emerging low carbon alternatives such as electric vehicles and incumbent fossil fuels. Also, use of green hydrogen fuel in end-uses is not always the most efficient solution compared to direct electrification in many applications. According to research, globally, only 4% of the hydrogen is produced through the process of electrolysis.However, hydrogen being an abundant and consistent zero-carbon fuel, time has come on the basis of technological innovations to make hydrogen fuel a major player in the energy system to address the increasing concern about climate change and for this reason, it is necessary to assess the potential role of hydrogen from a systems perspective, considering all potential end-uses, production routes, and value-chain configurations in the Indian context.
Karim CHOUKRI: is Phd Engineer on renewable energy and sustainable development. He is head of Wind Energy section, Directorate of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in the Ministry of Energy Mines& Sustainable Development. He is nominated, since 2013, as a Co-Chair of the Moroccan-German Energy Partnership. He has published articles and reports about Renewable Energy including REMAP2030 with IRENA and the Arab Future Energy Index RE Report with RCREEE. He elaborates studies and analysis about renewable energy and its integration on the grid and assessment of energy policing. He is a Member of the Renewable Energy University Network (REUNET) in Morocco.
Morocco, which has no conventional energy resources, depends entirely on the international primary energy market to satisfy its growing demand due to its economic growth and demographic progression. The country imports the majority of its energy source supply. Morocco has implemented an important energy strategy that supports the country’s transition to renewable energy and energy efficiency that generalizes across all consumer sectors of the economy (housing, transport, industry). To fulfill this energy transition, the liberalization of renewable energy market was adopted and financial mechanisms have been created to stimulate private sector involvement and to facilitate the implementation of the public–private partnership. The government and public institutions that were created to accompany Morocco’s energy vision have committed to drive the development of projects in the priority areas of renewable energy and energy efficiency, but the country still needs to deal with many barriers related to the policy, financial, and technical frameworks.
