He informed about its key aspects, in particular, the intensification of partnerships with such specialized organizations as the International Renewable Energy Agency - IRENA, the International Energy Agency - IEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency - IAEA, the Energy Charter, etc. In this regard, it is proposed to develop a National Strategy for the Development of Hydrogen Energy with the involvement of international experts, as well as to create an IRENA Center for Hydrogen Energy in Turkmenistan and open a similar experimental center on the basis of the International University of Oil and Gas named after Yagshigeldy Kakaev. The question also arises of creating an industry infrastructure - organizing the industrial production of hydrogen, its storage and transportation networks, as well as investments in this area. To this end, it is planned to form an interdepartmental working group that will take decisions and coordinate work on this issue, establishing consultations with world leaders in the field of hydrogen energy.
