Africa could produce 30-60 million tonnes of hydrogen annually

Africa could produce 30-60 million tonnes of hydrogen annually, with a $680bn to $1,300bn price tag, according to a joint report by Masdar and Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

The Africa’s Green Energy Revolutionreport has estimated that 20 to 40 million tonnes per year is likely to be for the export of pure hydrogen, ammonia, and synthetic fuels, while the remaining 10 to 20 million tonnes per annum would serve domestic demand in industry, mobility, and power sectors.
