With major oil and gas discoveries in early 2022, Namibia is the most recent trailblazer among Africa’s frontier energy hotspots, as displayed by the Invest in Namibia Country Spotlight organized at African Energy Week 2022 in Cape Town last October.
“Why Namibia? When it comes to cost-effective green hydrogen, the curve is much steeper than the gas sector,” noted Jonathan Metcalfe, Business Case Development Manager for Hyphen. “As a result, we need to focus on the quality of the resource and bankability of the project. This project is a combination of a high quality resource in a very stable country, with high investability. Namibia is one of the world’s lowest cost producers. This means a much lower deployment of resources compared to normal hydrogen or energy developments.
