South Africa is struggling with its domestic energy mix, not least its heavy reliance on coal, but sees hydrogen as an opportunity to pursue.
Francois Joubert, a partner at Fasken, talked Ed Reed of Energy Voice through some of his thoughts on the sector.
Clean hydrogen offers a “significant opportunity” in cutting carbon emissions and securing sustainable financing. In a world where ESG is playing an increasingly important part in securing investor support, a clean-burning resource is an attractive proposition.
Francois was talking ahead of the third episode of Energy Voice’s Hydrogen – a Tracking Transition series.
In the third episode the theme will be a focus on policy and outcomes from COP26. It will take place on November 18, starting at 15:00 GMT.
This follows the first two episodes, which are available now. The first focused on making the market, while the second looked at projects, infrastructure and finance.
