Uruguay has completed the first stage of its energy transformation, starting by decarbonizing its electric matrix, with 97% renewable energy between 2017 and 2020. The second stage of the energy transformation includes, among other challenges, the decarbonization of the rest of the energy sector and raw materials and the development of a hydrogen economy for both the local market and for export.

After a process of analysis and exchange with relevant national and international actors, it is concluded that Uruguay has very good conditions for the development of green hydrogen and its derivatives. Based on this conclusion the present roadmap to 2040 is proposed. This document is the result of the work of the interinstitutional group, coordinated by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining (MIEM), with the support of the _Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) during 2021 and early 2022. The “Green Hydrogen Roadmap in Uruguay” is available for consultation until 15 August.
