The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has assured its continuous support towards the Renewable Energy Project on the Green Hydrogen in West Africa.
This was contained in a speech delivered by Mrs. Annassi Kerstin, who represented BMBF at a two-day technical committee workshop on the Green Hydrogen Project underway at the WASCAL’s headquarters in Accra.
The purpose of the workshop is for the H-Power-Africa to start with a study on the potentials of a sustainable production of green hydrogen in West Africa and to explore all renewable energy sources as drivers of such production as well as export potentials and the overall socio-economic impact of the project on the continent.
The project will deliver an atlas that shows the green hydrogen potentials taking into account the different social, political, climate, infrastructure, policy and environmental issues that may be related to such.
Participating partners at the workshop are drawn from Germany and West Africa, including Julich, ECREEE/ ECOWAS, CSIR and WASCAL.
