HDF signs agreement with Ugandan Government to establish green hydrogen power plant

The Ugandan Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD) has signed an agreement with Hydrogène de France (HDF Energy) to establish the country’s first green hydrogen power plant.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), HDF hopes to build one of its Renewstable® power plant in Uganda, which will enable large-scale storage of intermittent renewable solar energy in the form of hydrogen, as well as electricity generation using hydrogen feedstock in a fuel cell.

According to HDF, the plant is set to provide year-round supply of renewable energy for the equivalent of 24 hours a day, eliminating renewable intermittency, while avoiding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and noise compared to a traditional diesel plant.
