President Ramaphosa to officially open Green Hydrogen Summit

Profile Image: 
President Cyril Ramaphosa will officially open and deliver the keynote address at the special-edition Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium South Africa (SIDSSA) that will focus exclusively on Green Hydrogen.

The South Africa Green Hydrogen Summit as the event is branded, will be held in Cape Town at Century City, from Monday, 28 November to Wednesday, 30 November 2022. 

President Ramaphosa will deliver the keynote address on Tuesday, 29 November 2022.

South Africa is one of the founding members of the Africa Green Hydrogen Alliance (AGHA) which seeks to promote continental green hydrogen cooperation.

The conference will be addressed by senior expert delegates from around the continent and Europe.

The Summit builds on the opportunities identified during the Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium South Africa (SIDSSA) of 2021. 

One of the highlights of the symposium was South Africa’s emergence as a potential global exporter of green energy with major investment support from Sasol and Anglo-American boosting the country’s green hydrogen projects.

Green hydrogen was identified as a “Big Frontier”, in the Country Investment Strategy, indicating that it represents both current and future growth and investment potential for South Africa.

The inaugural infrastructure summit highlighted Summit Green Hydrogen as a viable sector for strategic investment and government support in the country.

This week’s Summit will focus on:

• Bringing together role players, such as project sponsors, decision makers in government, financing institutions, international authorities, and academic institutions, to enable knowledge sharing, and most importantly, enabling an environment conducive to forging long-term working relationships;
• Concentrating targeted green hydrogen engagement events aimed at popularising the Green Hydrogen Economy and its potential in South Africa;
• Drawing lessons from other countries on their individual journey’s as it relates to building an economy around green hydrogen and decarbonisation;
• Drawing interest in exports and domestic utilisation underpinned by green hydrogen’s potential to combine South Africa’s mineral endowment with its renewable energy endowment to drive beneficiation and reindustrialisation.
