There is a significant gap across the African continent in terms of infrastructure development as most of Africa is still lagging behind, especially with regards to key infrastructure sectors such as energy, road and rail transportation, and water infrastructure. There is a need to reduce or to even close this infrastructure gap in all of Africa’s infrastructure sectors to ensure a substantial improvement in the growth and development of African countries and the continent. Infrastructure investments in Africa is very much needed in order to play an important part in strengthening the backbone of the continent’s economy and in boosting the development of the African Infrastructure. Hence, Africa urgently need to upgrade and seek adequate infrastructure provisions to achieve the intended objective of economic growth.

Why DEVAC HYDROGEN-H?

DEVAC HYDROGEN-H is a high-level business meeting platform which takes place as a Conference and Expo which constantly promotes Hydrogen project developments and investment opportunities within the Green Hydrogen sector across Africa. Important discussions and great collaboration take place at this exclusive event between governments, the private sector, and key stakeholders from the African Hydrogen value chain, to ensure the continent can lead in the development of Green Hydrogen for energy transition.

The demand for Green Hydrogen is growing rapidly, and for Africa this is a significant indicator on the continent’s path towards implementing hydrogen development, which is predicted to be a key factor for Africa’s strategy for economic growth and mitigating climate change. Green Hydrogen offers Africa the opportunity to play a key role in driving the world’s transition to net-zero emissions as the continent stands to become a leader in the global Green Hydrogen landscape.

While Africa is emerging as a potential global exporter of green energy, investing in Green Hydrogen across the continent could stimulate the creation of millions of jobs and new green industries. The production of green hydrogen could also play a leading role in unlocking a roaring economic engine and addressing climate change across the Africa continent.
