The African continent has a unique potential for developing competitive renewable energy in order to produce green hydrogen, both for domestic and external markets. Green hydrogen could become a booster for sustainable development in African countries, allowing them to reduce their environmental impacts and their dependence to fossil fuels.
In this context, the coordination of African Union (AU) and EU policies and development roadmaps can help to unlock a smooth and mutually beneficial kick-start of a green hydrogen economy, under conditions that secure sustainability and viability from a technical, social, economic and environmental perspective.
As an ambitious cross-continental R&D initiative, JUST-GREEN AFRH2ICA will play a key role in collecting inputs from major African and European actors promoting green hydrogen as a key pillar of decarbonization.
For this purpose, Artelys, in its contribution towards the project, will enrich the Artelys Crystal Super Grid energy modelling platform to include a representation of multiple African H2 value chains that include main carriers for hydrogen transportation (new hydrogen pipelines, repurposed gas infrastructure, sea transportation via derivatives, etc.).
The impact of green hydrogen imports on the European energy system will then be assessed at the 2040 and 2050 time horizons, notably in view of reaching the sustainability goals defined by the European Commission regarding the integration of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency measures and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Artelys and other main stakeholders have taken part in the launch event of JUST-GREEN AFRH2ICA in Brussels on February 15th, 2023, where several working group sessions and a public consultation have been organized.

— We are pleased to announce that Artelys Knitro 14.0 is now available! This new version enables compagnies to solve complex non-linear optimization problems with unprecedented efficency and precision.
Artelys to participate in the demonstration of digital twins for optimal grid and market actions in Europe
— Artelys is involved in the three-year Horizon Europe project TwinEU, which aims to create a digital twin of the entire European electricity grid with a unique consortium bringing together grid and market operators, research entities and technology providers.
— Planning for the energy transition requires the ability to optimize energy system development pathways, considering complex interactions and constraints, particularly concerning interactions between sectors and vectors. In this context, Artelys has developed a new method for solving these large-scale mathematical problems.
— The stakes of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become a strategic issue for companies, regardless of their field of activity or size. As an expert, Artelys provides you with full assistance, from the design stage to the implementation of your first AI solution, by building with and for your team a roadmap tailored to your business.
