Namibia Proposes Green Hydrogen Supply To EU To Replace Russian Oil And Gas

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on H2 Fuel News.

These paragraphs explain the plan.

The African country has considerable wind and sunshine resources available, providing the opportunity to use renewable energy for the production of H2. Namibia is located along the African South Atlantic coastline and is among the world’s driest countries. Its 3,500 hours of sunshine per year mean that solar panels will be able to absorb a tremendous amount of energy, without much unexpected downtime.

That energy will be used for producing yellow H2, a form of green (renewable) H2 made using electrolysers powered by solar electricity. The electrolyser will split seawater, another abundant resource for the country due to its position on the map. As a result, it has the potential to offer the European Union a clean fuel source that can help it to simultaneously combat the energy crisis and the climate crisis.

Note.

  1. Liquid hydrogen will be shipped to Europe by tanker.
  2. I don’t think Vlad the Mad will like the plan!
  3. How many other countries have the resources like Namibia to become hydrogen exporters?

This plan was proposed at the World Economic Forum at Davos.

  1. of course if the world worked together it would make good use of such a bleak uninhabitable space in the world rather than using 3 times as much land take in the Northern Hemisphere often on good agricultural land.
