What makes a hydrogen market?

The “Hydrogen: What makes a market?” panel discussion at the AIX Energy in Transition meeting on 27 April is chaired by James Doree, Managing Director, Lion’s Head Global Partners.

The price of power is critical for locating hydrogen production, but what other factors are important? Many African countries are vying to attract investment into huge green hydrogen projects. This panel will discuss what they need to do to ensure they are at the front of the queue.

  • Solar and wind are widely seen as the most prospective technologies to power ‘green hydrogen’ (GH2) production, but in what combination? What about hydropower?
  • What infrastructure is needed and which countries are in the best position to put it in place?
  • How important is domestic and regional demand for siting a green hydrogen project, and what are the prospects for blue hydrogen in gas rich economies?
  • What regulation, policy, and legislation are required for large-scale hydrogen production and what is the starting position in frontrunner African countries?

Panellists include:

  • Uri Epstein, Green Hydrogen Development, Fortescue Future Industries
  • David Humphrey, Finance Director, Hive Energy
  • Olivier Mussat, Chief Executive Officer, Atome
  • Margaret Mutschler, Partner, Mutschler Consulting Services & Chairperson, Green Hydrogen Association of Namibia
  • Mike Peo, Head: Infrastructure, Energy & Telecommunication, Nedbank
  • Rabah Sellami, Director of Hydrogen, Commission for Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency, Algeria
