Meet Green Hydrogen Specialists from South Africa

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency will host a Business Briefing for U.S. firms to share their clean energy and green hydrogen solutions with South African decisionmakers and learn about potential opportunities in South Africa’s rapidly growing green hydrogen sector. 

Background INformation

The South African energy sector is set to undergo significant changes over the coming decades, and the South African government considers zero emission hydrogen to be essential to the country’s new energy mix.  In addition to local demand, South Africa intends to position itself as a global supplier of zero emission hydrogen for countries unable to produce it independently. 

The South African government is moving forward on long-stalled clean energy priorities to help reduce carbon emissions and increase overall energy supply. This government effort will both improve the business climate and support near-term export opportunities for green hydrogen technologies. Among other recent developments, the South African Department of Energy has signed agreements for two hybrid wind-solar facilities with battery storage, and a new law promoting private generation projects and power trading aims to enhance competition. 

The business briefing is part of USTDA’s South Africa Green Hydrogen Reserve Trade Mission to connect public and private climate-smart institutions with U.S. best practices and solutions in clean energy and climate infrastructure.
