The need to decarbonize the power generation, mining, mobility and heat energy markets in the face of the rapidly evolving climate reality leads the green transition. While the energy transition is in a nascent stage, development of green hydrogen markets is gathering pace and traction. Green hydrogen has potential uses in various end-use sectors and will play an increasing role in the transition to net zero as the cost of renewable electricity continues to drop and the cost of electrolysers reduce due to technical developments and a growth in the supply chain.
 
Africa has seen vast amounts of progress in green hydrogen developments across the region with countries such as South Africa, Niger, Mali and Namibia redirecting its focus on the utilisation of renewable energies through green hydrogen.
 
The Africa Green hydrogen Forum is gearing up to provide attendees with seminal insights for successful operations within a digitally shifted green energy landscape. The forum will bring together industry leaders enabling accelerated adoption of green hydrogen, action to bring down CO2 emissions and will offer the ideal space for networking with industry players; senior managers, decision-makers, and practitioners operating in the industries and making the most of green hydrogen technologies.
 
Join us as we gather these experts, practitioners, stakeholders, and leaders from Africa, Europe and the rest of the world to discuss the opportunities and future challenges in African Hydrogen economy, explore opportunities for the supply chain, examine the role of green hydrogen in the global energy transition and its relevance for the achievement of net-zero carbon. In addition, various aspects of green hydrogen will be presented and discussed in several sessions: green hydrogen storage, transport, distribution and the development of infrastructure.

Green hydrogen is one of the largest economic opportunities over the next 30 years. Driven by international actions to combat climate change, it has the potential to revolutionize numerous value chains in the energy industry and across both mobility and manufacturing sectors. The growing challenges of the climate crisis are forcing investment in green hydrogen and technologies based on it, as an essential building block for climate protection. Hydrogen, as a new promising ecosystem, can help reduce CO2 emissions in many ways. To fully exploit the potential of hydrogen, solutions must be found to the challenges of production, storage, transport and use

WHY GREEN HYDROGEN

According to a Focus on Hydrogen report by Clifford Chance, with rapidly improving technology and decreasing costs for fuel cells, green hydrogen is becoming a more appealing fuel alternative in Africa. Backed by Africa’s extensive renewable energy resources – the International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that renewable energy capacity in Africa could reach 310GW by 2030. The development of green hydrogen projects will not only address continent-wide energy demand, increasing energy security and contribute to domestic energy independence, but will provide an environmentally sustainable fuel alternative for years to come. Accordingly, green hydrogen represents the most ideal resource to catapult the continent to net-zero emissions by 2030. Additionally, the resource possesses the potential to reshape the African energy space, in which the establishment of a green hydrogen market will not only ensure a consistent and reliable domestic fuel supply, but significantly increase country-wide revenue through exports to international markets. Subsequently, the development of green hydrogen can drive socioeconomic growth and establish Africa as a global competitor.

Green hydrogen is hydrogen that is produced using an electrolyser, powered by renewable energy, such as wind, solar, hydraulic or biomass plant. From an electrochemical reaction, the electrolyser will split water into dihydrogen and dioxygen and produce hydrogen. The mode of production is clean and does not produce carbon.

This differs from other forms of hydrogen product, notably so-called 'blue' and 'grey' hydrogen. Blue hydrogen is produced from natural gas and, unlike green hydrogen, results in carbon dioxide being produced, but this is captured by a carbon capture, utilisation and storage system. With 'grey' hydrogen, hydrogen is produced from using fossil fuels and the carbon produced in this process is not captured at all.

One of the main benefits of green hydrogen production, besides its clean carbon footprint, is the fact that the hydrogen facility is powered by the excess electricity produced during peak periods and which cannot otherwise be injected in a saturated power grid.

The need to decarbonize the power generation, mobility and heat energy markets in the face of the rapidly evolving climate reality leads the green transition. While the energy transition is in a nascent stage, development of hydrogen markets and projects is gathering pace and traction. Hydrogen has potential uses in various end-use sectors, including industry, transport, power and distributed energy.

Around the world, a green hydrogen rush is underway, and many companies, investors, governments, and environmentalists believe it is an energy source that could help end the reign of fossil fuels and slow the world's warming trajectory.

Declining costs of renewables, along with the necessity of curtailing greenhouse gas emissions, is shifting the potential growth of hydrogen upwards in political and business perspectives.  Apparently, hydrogen technologies will supply 18 per cent of the world’s total energy needs in future and will be able to power around 425 million vehicles around the world.

The transition to green hydrogen could provide $11 trillion of infrastructure investment opportunities over the next 30 years making a global business focus. The number of countries with polices that directly support investment in hydrogen technologies is increasing, along with the number of sectors they target.

Governments across the world have put hydrogen at the centre of their decarbonisation plans with billions of dollars allocated to stimulating the market. Hydrogen is today enjoying unprecedented momentum. The world should not miss this unique chance to make hydrogen an important part of our clean and secure energy future.

While the production of green hydrogen has captured the much-needed political and industry support, transport and storage of green hydrogen pose a huge challenge in the future. To address these issues, existing gas pipeline operators will present their perspectives and plans to build the needed infrastructure for transporting and storing green hydrogen.

Africa Green Hydrogen Forum, featuring a high-level agenda, will bring together renewable power generators, project developers, debt providers and investors, government and private sector decision-makers, chemical and mobility industries representatives, gas grids and off-takers, among others, to define a new energy era fuelled by hydrogen.

Leadvent Group is organizing this event because of our commitment to creating public-private partnerships with socially impactful endeavours, which is of course, core to our company mission.

If you haven’t yet heard about green hydrogen, you’re about to—in a big way. The universe’s most abundant element is among the hotter topics in the halls of industry and government across the world. Get a possibility and chance to network and exchange ideas with industry leaders and stakeholders with technical insights.
