Afrika-Verein (German-African Business Association) has the pleasure to invite you to the

2nd Unlocking Industries – Hydrogen in Africa: Transforming Infrastructure & Partnerships
- Part of the “German-African Energy Forum” brand -
June 14th & 15th, 2023
Hamburg (Panoramadeck of the Emporio Tower)

An extended climate partnership with Kenya for the production of green hydrogen, a 34 Billion US-Dollar green-hydrogen-deal with Mauritania, a new “Just Energy Transition”-partnership between the German Ministry of Education and Research and its South African counterpart or the financing of a green hydrogen feasibility study in Senegal – these are just a few of March’s headlines highlighting Germany’s interest in strengthening a green hydrogen partnership with African partners.

Germany needs to decarbonize and African countries need to boost their industrialisation: hydrogen seems to be the determining factor for the win-win scenario. But there is a lot of renewable energy to be developed, infrastructure to be build, feasibility to be proven and industries to maintain.

Who are the first movers? How and where will we build the necessary infrastructure? What about the logistics? What role will transition technologies play? How will green energy and hydrogen production go hand in hand with the development in Africa? And last but not least: how can we achieve the successful transition for our industries?

These and more questions will be addressed at the hydrogen edition of the 16th German-African energy forum to create solutions and partnerships to push projects to the next level, initiate new paths of cooperation and work towards a unified German-African hydrogen market.
