Hydrogen Valley | South Africa
- Jan 25, 2023 10:17 am GMT
Hydrogen is a key priority for South Africa. In his last State of the Nation address, President Ramaphosa cited that hydrogen fuels cells are a national priority as an alternative energy source.
Hydrogen presents a significant opportunity for economic development in South Africa, including the creation of new jobs and the monetization of the platinum industry. It is also a contributor to South frica’s decarbonization objectives, leveraging PP1 , REDZ2 and other renewable development programs to produce green hydrogen, now at the centre of many sectorlevel green strategies (e.g., green steel, green buildings).
Finally, global commitments towards hydrogen production and demand create an opportunity for South Africa to engage in energy export at the international level. The South African government’s Department of Science and nnovation (DS ), in partnership with Anglo-American, Bambili Energy and ENGIE are looking into opportunities to transform the Bushveld complex and larger region around Johannesburg, Mogalakwena and Durban into a Hydrogen Valley.
