A fact-finding mission for company representatives and decision-makers from South Africa and Namibia to Germany from 22-26 August 2022 will enable you to gather first-hand information on green hydrogen and power-to-X technologies and to establish business contacts with German companies. The fact-finding mission includes a networking event and on-site visits of best-practice projects.

Meet German companies

The networking event and information seminar will be held on 23 August 2022 in Berlin. The event provides insight into the current situation, trends and prospects for German energy solutions with regard to green hydrogen and power-to-X technologies. You have the chance to exchange knowledge with German experts and company representatives.

On the following days, on-site visits to see best-practice technology applications and/or measures are planned for you in Berlin and surroundings.
You will benefit from a comprehensive information and visitor programme designed to foster the transfer of expertise.

Representatives from state-owned and private companies, plant operators, ministries, public authorities and energy associations who want to gain a first-hand insight into German energy solutions are welcome to join the fact-finding-mission.

Energy solutions made in Germany

Germany places great hopes in green hydrogen as a key element for advancing its energy transition. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and climate Action expects a hydrogen demand of 90-110 TWh by 2030, while only 14 TWh of this demand will be met by domestic production. Accordingly, most of the hydrogen needed in Germany will have to be imported. The National Hydrogen Strategy, approved in June 2020, supports the development of markets for the production and use of green hydrogen through a set of 38 domestic measures which will also ensure that Germany plays a pioneering role in the development and export of hydrogen and PtX technologies. As part of this strategy, the German government will be funding pilot projects in partner countries with € 2 billion by 2030.
