In the present paper a techno-economic hydrogen production and transportation costs to export from Colombia to Europe and Asia were determined using the open-source Python tools, such as WindPowerLIB, PVLIB, ERA5 weather data, and the Hydrogen-2-Central (H2C) model. Calculations were performed as well for Chile, for comparison as a regional competitor. In addition, a detailed overview of Colombia's energy system and national efforts for a market ramp-up of renewable energy and hydrogen is provided. The application of the model in different scenarios shows Colombia's potential to produce green hydrogen using renewable energies. The prices estimated are 1.5 and 1.02 USD/kgH2 for 2030 and 2050 with wind power, and 3.24 and 1.65 USD/kgH2 for 2030 and 2050 using solar energy. Colombia can become one of the most promising hydrogen suppliers to Asian and European countries with one of the lowest prices in the production and transportation of green hydrogen.
