The state has reported that it is finalising the Hydrogen Society Roadmap, which it believes is integral in shaping the country’s industrialisation and economic pathway.
The state took to Twitter on Wednesday, 5 May 2021, to stipulate that it is finalising the Hydrogen Society Roadmaps. The roadmap’s conceptualisation was spearheaded by the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), with the intention to produce a plan for the country to adopt alternative energy as a vehicle to advance industrialisation and economic growth.
According to the statement, the roadmap’s estimated time of completion is either August or September 2021. The DSI’s Chief Director for Hydrogen and Energy, Rebecca Maserumule has expressed optimism about the roadmap.
Maserumule was quoted as saying, “The growth areas for the sector are around energy in the mining sector, transport industry, buildings, [and the] export of green hydrogens to other economies (either Europe or Asia) in resource development,” Adding, “We are building our economic growth out of COVID on the back of infrastructure development. In order to do that effectively, while keeping to our Paris Agreement commitments, we really need to maximise system value.”
