Is Hydrogen Africa’s new oil? The potentials and prospects of a German-African hydrogen partnership

Hydrogen is not only an important factor for the European Union to reach its climate goals, additionally it has the power to unlock untapped potential across various sectors. Germany is determined to play a major role in boosting a global hydrogen market and has put a partnership with the African continent on the Agenda with a green hydrogen project in partnership with Morocco. The expansion of renewable energy sourcing in Africa will favour the development of green hydrogen and will enable African economies to compete in a global hydrogen market.
What role will Africa play in achieving Germanys hydrogen strategy and what will the development of a global hydrogen market mean for African economies? What framework is needed in African countries in order to push the development of RE on the ground? Can we realistically speak about transporting energy from Africa to Europe or is that a far-fetched vision?
