Dreams of Green Hydrogen in Namibia's Wilderness
Key Ideas
  • In an isolated Namibian landscape, the Daures Green Hydrogen Village project aims to produce 18 tonnes of green hydrogen and 100 tonnes of green ammonia by the end of the year.
  • The project envisions Africa's first green hydrogen village, showcasing a green circular economy and aiming to export up to one million tonnes of green ammonia by 2030.
  • Local community involvement is emphasized, with over 200 Namibians employed from surrounding communities, highlighting a collaborative approach to sustainable development.
  • Investments of 12.2 million euros have been made, with plans for further expansion to establish a 5.4GW facility producing green hydrogen and ammonia for local consumption and international export.
In the desolate Dorob National Park in Namibia, the Daures Green Hydrogen Village project is underway, focusing on producing green hydrogen and ammonia using renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. The project, situated in the Erongo region, aims to develop a green hydrogen industrial complex on 300 hectares of land. Infrastructure such as solar panels, wind turbines, and greenhouses have been set up, showcasing significant progress in the project's initial phases. The ultimate goal is to create Africa's first green hydrogen village, exporting green ammonia and fostering a green circular economy. Local community engagement is key, with over 200 Namibians employed and collaboration with traditional authorities and conservancies. The project has garnered investments of 12.2 million euros, with plans for further expansion to increase production capacity. With a positive outlook on delivering green ammonia competitively in international markets, the project signifies a step towards sustainable industrial development and economic growth in Namibia.
