South Africa and Namibia: The green hydrogen sector and opportunities

Producing green hydrogen requires two things above all else; water and abundant renewable electricity. South Africa and Namibia have the potential and intention to harness their natural resources by developing major projects to bring Green Hydrogen to Southern Africa and the world. Driven by the Paris Climate Agreement, a number of opportunities have been created that could lead to a Southern African boom in energy production.

When considering opportunities in green hydrogen in South Africa and Namibia, it is important to understand that each country has a different end goal for green hydrogen and different reasons for green hydrogen projects. This is driven by a combination of internal and external factors such as the level of industrialisation, natural resources, agreements with other countries and political and social drive.

Our factsheet provides a brief overview of recent developments in both countries and also sheds light on changes within their regulatory environment.
