Joining this partnership could help Europe secure renewable energy for hydrogen production and help secure long term decarbonisation goals.

In doing so, Hydrogen Europe will join the AHP Board of Directors as it targets developing the supply chain in Africa and create a market both domestically and internationally.

The abundance of sun, wind and land resources will produce renewable hydrogen and help break Europe’s dependence on fossil fuels from Russia.

Dr. Innocent Uwuijaren, Chairman of the African Hydrogen partnership, said, “Renewable African hydrogen is essential to the world and Europe meeting its net-zero targets. With the war in Ukraine demonstrating the urgency of Europe’s energy transition and Africa gearing up for COP27 in Egypt, there is no better time to welcome Hydrogen Europe as a board member of the AHP.

“As Africa ramps up its sustainable energy supply and many of its countries leapfrog to the new age of hydrogen technologies, the AHP is confident that clean, sustainable and renewable African hydrogen will price diesel and petrol out of the market between 2025 and 2030.”

Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, CEO of Hydrogen Europe, said, “Our collaboration will open new business opportunities for both AHP and Hydrogen Europe’s members and help us build together enabling, aligned and ambitious global frameworks for decarbonisation.

“We will leverage the recent European investments and leadership in clean hydrogen technologies and Africa’s renewable powerhouse, its agility, and disruptive market orientation, to develop a mutually beneficial energy partnership.”
