Energie for Africa - think tank meeting: Hydrogen: myth or reality?
The Association for the Development of Enery in Africa (ADEA) and the Senegalese Association for the Development of Enery in Africa (ASDEA) are organizing a conference on Tuesday June 20, 2023 (5:30 pm - 8 pm - CEST , 3:30 pm - 11 am West Africa) dedicated to Hydrogen: myth or reality. The program and registration details are shown opposite.
Renewable energies play an important role in Africa's energy mix. Hydropower, solar and wind power are the preferred sources of electricity, while firewood (which needs to be gradually replaced by clean fuels) is the main cooking fuel in many countries.
Access to electricity
Demand for electricity is set to grow considerably over the next few years. Most new capacity will come from solar and wind power.
The role of gas
With the gas market set to come under pressure over the next few years, Africa is due to play a major role in this sector over the next few years. Traditional producers (Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Nigeria) will remain significant suppliers to Europe. What's new will come from sub-Saharan Africa. The reserves discovered in Mozambique and Tanzania in the Rovuma basin are considerable and should, once security problems have been overcome, make a major contribution to supplying Asia and Europe. More recent discoveries in South Africa could also play a significant role. Finally, discoveries in Senegal and Mauritania could eventually contribute to European supplies.
