This project aims to provide background information and an analytical overview about Saudi Arabia’s current key industries as well as products of relevance for its energy transition and its national hydrogen economy. In this context, the project team also explores what additional industrial sectors might be expanded or added to enhance the establishment of the energy transition’s supply chains at a domestic level. By focusing on Saudi Arabia’s current industrial production and its main industrial targets within the energy transition, the project sheds light on the kingdom’s untapped industrial potential within the energy transition’s supply chains and future perspectives for hydrogen production.
This project is funded by the Hydrogen Diplomacy Office in Riyadh, which was established by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Foreign Office in 2022 to engage in a dialogue on Saudi Arabia’s future role in the global energy transition.
