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 has secured a N$220-million grant from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to implement a Daures Green Hydrogen Village hydrogen pilot project over an 18-month period.
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.
The juggernaut that Namibia’s green hydrogen industry is expected to become moved one step closer to fruition after one of the four successful applicants for pilot projects, the Daures Green Hydrogen Village (DGHV), was launched in Windhoek on Friday.
