Could africa become a leader in supplying green fuel to the world? | dw news

DW News published this video item, entitled “Could Africa become a leader in supplying green fuel to the world? | DW News” – below is their description.

Could Africa become a leader in supplying green fuel to the world? That question has become even more relevant as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine – creating disruption in Europe’s energy supplies.

Germany is one of the countries scrambling for alternatives – including from the African continent. This week the country’s minister of Economy and Climate, Robert Habeck, visited two nations in Southern Africa,

Namibia and South Africa – both of which are looking toward ‘green hydrogen’ fuel production. In Namibia Habeck supported a 10 Billion Dollar hydrogen project from a German firm. There are however concerns that Africa will not fully benefit, or be in control of its own green energy resources.
