IRELAND - THE NETHERLANDS

Ireland and the coastline of the Netherlands have very good wind resources and sufficient space for using wind turbines for generating power offshore and onshore whereby the investment for onshore installations with 1 Mio. € per installed MW is a third less compared to offshore installations.

MOROCCO - URUGUAY

In Morocco and Uruguay on the other hand I would consider concentrated solar power plants (CSP) which are parabolic mirrors that focus the sun rays on a liquid (i.e. water) which feeds a steam turbine which again feeds a generator to produce electricity for the electrolysis. This technology is around three times more effective per kWh and cheaper as well in manufacturing compared to photovoltaic cells and they don´t need any toxic substances for production, so no pollution after wrecking. This technology is ready to use and to name some existing projects: Andasol I, II & III in Spain and Shams1 in Abu Dhabi.
