PANEL DISCUSSION: Hydrogen Commercialisation for a Clean and Secure African Energy Future

Hydrogen is emerging as a game-changer in the global energy transition. This session explores the potential of "green" and "blue" hydrogen for Africa, showcasing key project opportunities, key successes in grey hydrogen. The panellists feature African energy leaders, hydrogen project developers, and technology providers, will delve into the exciting possibilities hydrogen presents for decarbonizing various sectors and fostering energy security.  The session will highlight green hydrogen from renewables, "blue" from natural gas with CCS and those that are best suited for different African countries and applications (heavy industries, transportation, power storage) and will delve into opportunities that will open up in the commercialization of hydrogen. The panel will also explore how African nations can foster partnerships with international stakeholders to develop a robust hydrogen ecosystem as well as key challenges due to the need for financing, better regulation and need for growth in the offtake market.
