Daures Green Hydrogen Village (DGHV) says operations will start in October when the agriculture component of the project, which includes carbon-free tomatoes will be planted.
Namibia cemented itself as a force to be reckoned with as the country took the first step to make green hydrogen production a reality. The country on Monday afternoon launched the first phase of the Daures Green Hydrogen Village in the shadows of the Brandberg mountains.
The Daures Green Hydrogen Village will be Africa’s first Net Zero green community. The project will howcase the sustainable production of green hydrogen and ammonia from renewable sources, demonstrate green hydrogen applications, and pilot a green hydrogen economy with export potential for hydrogen derivatives while creating research opportunities for local and international students.
Namibia’s green hydrogen juggernaut has moved another step closer to fruition after four successful applicants for pilot projects were announced yesterday at the commencement of the inaugural two-day Green Hydrogen Conference in the capital.
The Daures Green Hydrogen Consortium launched the Daures Green Hydrogen Village (DGHV) last week on Friday, as a move that will realise the production of green hydrogen and ammonia plus the utilisation of its derivatives.
Four green hydrogen pilot projects are set to benefit from around N$500 million in German government funding to boost hydrogen production as well as decarbonize the transport sector, Hydrogen Commissioner James Mnyupe said on Tuesday at the inaugural two-day Green Hydrogen Conference.
