South Africa sets up association for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies

The South African Hydrogen Association (SAHA) has been established to develop and promote national expertise in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

The newly launched South African Hydrogen Association aims to promote and develop national expertise in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, and elsewhere in Africa.

SAHA was co-founded by Dr Dmitri Bessarabov (HySA Infrastructure), Gordon Freer (Platinum Trust of South Africa), and Professor Bruno Pollet (HySA Systems), with the financial support of the Platinum Trust of South Africa, an initiative of the North West province.

The Association provides an opportunity for all those in the sector to engage with a view to its commercial promotion. Membership is open to commercial companies (including those in the hydrogen and fuel cell, power utility, gas, water, chemical, telecom, and mining sectors), academic and research institutions, laboratories, development councils, government departments, consultants and investors, as well as individuals with an interest in the sector.

SAHA will also facilitate relationships between South African and international researchers and research institutions, to promote hydrogen as an energy source that takes into account local and global needs.
