President Ramaphosa cited that hydrogen fuels cells are a national priority as an alternative energy source.
Hydrogen presents a significant opportunity for economic development in South Africa, including the creation of new jobs and the monetization of the platinum industry. It is also a contributor to South Africa’s decarbonization objectives, leveraging renewable development programs to produce green hydrogen, now at the centre of many sector level green strategies (e.g., green steel, green buildings). Finally, global commitments towards hydrogen production and demand create an opportunity for South Africa to engage in energy export at the international level.
