Hydrogen Economy Discussion 2024

1st February 2024


Font size: - +

Resources for Africa is pleased to announce the fourth edition of the Hydrogen Economy Discussion taking place on 11th April 2024 at the Country Club Johannesburg, Auckland Park.

South Africa is well positioned to capitalise on the hydrogen economy, thanks to its abundant reserves of PGMs and substantial potential for renewable energy generation. Indeed, several government and private sector initiatives have recently been announced with the aim of promoting South Africa as a leading green hydrogen producer and investment destination of choice, including the collaboration between BMW, Sasol and Anglo American Platinum that will bring hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and supporting hydrogen refuelling technology to the country. South Africa is also one of six leading African countries, as well as Egypt, Kenya, Mauritania, Morocco and Namibia, to form the Africa Green Hydrogen Alliance to intensify collaboration and supercharge the development of green hydrogen projects on the African continent.

However, several significant challenges must be addressed before the potential for green hydrogen can be fully realised. There are still questions around the progress being made to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of hydrogen production. Additionally, the scalability of renewable energy and hydrogen production to meet anticipated demand is a critical consideration. Creating the necessary policy measures, regulations and infrastructure will also be essential to encourage local green hydrogen production and distribution and ensure the successful integration of South Africa into the global hydrogen market.

Brought to you by Resources for Africa, the organisers of the Joburg Indaba, this comprehensive one-day event will bring together some of the key players, including hydrogen project developers, mining companies, investors, industry associations, hydrogen equipment suppliers, infrastructure providers and independent advisers, to address all the challenges and opportunities of creating a local and global green hydrogen economy.

Key subjects that will be discussed include:

  • What is the potential of green hydrogen to support South Africa’s energy security and transform its future energy mix?
  • What is the outlook for the supply and demand of green hydrogen?
  • What is South Africa’s strategy for driving the development of the green hydrogen economy?
  • What are the latest local, regional, continental and international collaboration initiatives on green hydrogen?
  • What is the potential role of PGMs in the development of the hydrogen economy?
  • What are the challenges of developing an infrastructure for hydrogen production, storage and transportation?
  • What opportunities exist for local and international funders to invest in the green hydrogen economy?
  • Who is developing green hydrogen projects in Africa and elsewhere?
  • And much more...
