ENERGY TECH EVENT SERIES 2021 – Hydrogen & Wind Energy

On the 8 July 2021, Africa Scotland Business Network launched the inaugural ENERGY TECH EVENT SERIES powered by Scottish Development International.

On the 29th of July we hosted the 4th event in the series, Hydrogen & Wind Energy.

This virtual panel discussion highlights the next big topic in renewable energy – hydrogen, as a formidable solution to Africa’s energy issues. Hear from the experts and thought leaders on what hydrogen could mean for business and industry across Africa using models and technology created in Scotland as a basis. From hydrogen buses in Aberdeen to cars in Orkney, we’ve just scratched the surface of hydrogen’s incredible potential as a power source. Africa is a beacon of opportunity for hydrogen projects. We hear from experts on both sides of the equator to give you an acute insight into the industry, opportunity and who’s creating the latest projects and tech in the space.
