In the latest issue of African Review, Ulrich Vögtle, head of market intelligence and global sales support, MAN Energy Solutions SE, explained why Africa has limitless green hydrogen potential despite the prevailing challenges
In an exclusive interview, Vögtle noted that investors are increasing looking away from fossil fuel development and instead focusing on cleaner fuel such as green hydrogen and renewables.
As a result of this the price of renewables and green fuels is dropping, making them an even more attractive alternative to traditional sources of energy.
“Europe is looking to build its hydrogen economy and countries are looking for partners to import green hydrogen. Africa, due to its location, could be one of these exporters. There is simply huge potential for green hydrogen in Africa,” Vögtle commented.
In addition, Vögtle emphasised, African green hydrogen might not solely be used as an export commodity but instead could play a big role in the continent’s decarbonisation efforts and help bring green electricity to the population due to its energy storage potential safeguarding the security of supply.
