Hydrogen- Renewable Energie Division


Hydrogen as a potential energy vector is widely recognized. To this end and for a successful transition, R&D projects and road maps have been worldwide set up. In this context, the Renewable Energy Development Center (Centre de Développement des Energies Renouvelables) has set up a research and development hydrogen division. This division aspires to be, in the long term and at the national level, one of the instruments for the promotion of the technologies and the economy of hydrogen.


  • To gain good command
  • To carry on research and technological development in the field of hydrogen as an energy vector.
  • To facilitate the technological transfer to the economical sector
  • To develop innovative ideas.


  • Create a data base on the technological advances in the field of hydrogen as an energy vector.
