The Dii Desert Energy Leadership Forum also witnessed that many solar projects have recently been awarded for an electricity price of little more than 1 cent per kilowatt hour – a dream price a few years ago. Nevertheless, the current increases in raw material costs are clouding the euphoria of those involved. Investors, however, remain confident. After proving how cheap renewables can be, – gladly also in the combination of solar and wind – the participants expect significant project growth in the coming decade: there is no cheaper electricity anywhere else in the world.
There are interesting points of contact for future cooperation between GES and Dii: Development of a certification system of hydrogen for proof of origin and its climate neutrality, CO2 balancing of the different production methods of hydrogen (green, blue, turquoise, pink) as well as the cost structure of hydrogen or hydrogen derivative transport.
