President Cyril Ramaphosa delivers keynote address at second Green Hydrogen Summit, 16 Oct

President Cyril Ramaphosa will tomorrow, Monday, 16 October 2023, deliver the keynote address at the second iteration of the South Africa Green Hydrogen Summit (SAGHS) taking place on 16 - 17 October 2023 in Century City in Cape Town, Western Cape. 

The inaugural SAGHS, held in 2022, reaffirmed South Africa as an investment destination of choice and a world leader in the green energy space.
This second SAGHS aims to highlight South Africa’s exceptional potential as an early stage, large scale, low cost, world-class green hydrogen production hub and total value chain investment destination.

Green hydrogen and its associated large scale renewable energy production has the potential to support the expansion of the electricity transmission infrastructure to add additional renewable energy generation capacity and to support the local development of renewable energy.

This makes green hydrogen a key component of South Africa’s future energy mix and features as one of the Big Five Frontiers in the South Africa Investment Strategy.

The 2023 Summit aims to take the next step by focusing on the production and application of Green Hydrogen and paving the way for machines on the ground whilst concretising Power to X.

President Ramaphosa will deliver the keynote address during the opening ceremony of the summit as follows.
