12-Gigawatt Solar-to-Hydrogen Facility to Be Built in Mozambique

Jearrard Energy Resources and its subsidiaries are set to begin construction on a 12-gigawatt peak solar-to-hydrogen facility in Mozambique during the first quarter of next year. This project aims to address the increasing demand for green energy by producing around 4,000 tonnes of hydrogen.

Operational director Johann Kamp stated that similar projects are also scheduled for the South African market. The plan involves setting up solar plants with electrolysers to produce hydrogen, which will contribute to the growth of the South African economy through taxes and job creation. These projects are expected to start in the third quarter of 2024.

This solar-to-hydrogen facility in Mozambique will play a significant role in advancing the use of renewable energy in the region. Hydrogen is a versatile and green energy carrier that can be used for a variety of applications, including transportation, electricity generation, and industrial processes. By utilizing solar energy to produce hydrogen, the facility will help reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable development.

The project’s capacity of 12 gigawatts is impressive and will contribute significantly to the renewable energy infrastructure of Mozambique. With the increasing global focus on clean energy solutions, the demand for hydrogen is expected to rise. This facility aims to meet this demand while leveraging the abundant solar resources available in the region.

As the project kicks off next year, it will not only bring economic benefits through job creation and tax revenue but also help diversify the energy mix and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. This initiative aligns with the global efforts to transition to a low-carbon economy and combat climate change.

Overall, the construction of a 12-gigawatt peak solar-to-hydrogen facility in Mozambique marks a significant step towards a greener and more sustainable future for the region and provides a blueprint for similar projects in South Africa.
