- Energy Access
- Renewable Energy
Renewable hydrogen is a clean energy source that has great potential to decarbonize the last mile of the energy sector. Africa is on its way to becoming a major player in the renewable hydrogen market due to its abundant renewable energy resources. Likewise, the European Union has recognized the importance of renewable hydrogen and adopted the EU hydrogen strategy in July 2020, which aims to accelerate the development of clean Hydrogen.
After opening remarks from the European Commission and the African Union Commission, a panel of experts from industry and government will share their insights on how to scale up the production of renewable hydrogen, what regulatory frameworks are required to encourage private sector investment, and what the expected benefits of decarbonizing export value chains are. The event will shed light on the role renewable hydrogen can play in achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and driving economic growth in Africa and Europe.
