The Government has determined the objective of building a 1,870 km gas pipeline to mix 20% natural gas with hydrogen by 2026 and 100% by 2050, and the installation of 100 MW of electrolyzers to produce 10,000 tons of green hydrogen, which will be transported by gas pipeline for consumption in industry and transport mainly
