German Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek and her Nigerian counterpart and chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Competence Center for Climate Change and Adapted Land Use, Yahouza Sadissou, have agreed on a package of measures to expand the strategic partnership between Germany and West Africa, with a focus on hydrogen.
Africa is a continent of opportunities. Green hydrogen as the oil of tomorrow is one of the greatest opportunities. I am therefore very pleased that we have laid the foundation stone for a hydrogen partnership. It holds great opportunities for everyone involved: for West Africa, for Europe and for Germany as a country of innovation.—Minister Karliczek
Karliczek said that an atlas of green hydrogen potential in West Africa will be published by the end of the year.
