Harnessing Namibia’s potential

At Hyphen we understand the enormity of the global challenge to reverse the effects of climate change through decarbonisation. We have a vision to be Namibia’s leading green hydrogen project developer, working with Government on its vision to unlock Namibia’s green hydrogen potential for supply to international, regional and local markets.

Together with Government, we will work with local communities, environmental groups and other stakeholder groups to position Namibia’s green hydrogen industry for rapid scalability and long-term sustainability, to uplift the lives of Namibia’s people through economic development and contribute towards achieving global decarbonisation goals. We want to ensure that Namibia realises the full potential of its endowment as one of the world’s top resource rich locations for co-located onshore wind and solar, vast uninhabited land, and stable investment climate underpinned by strong democratic values. Hyphen, and the Government, are committed to developing Namibia’s hydrogen industry to the highest international standards in an inclusive way that brings all stakeholders with us while minimising the environmental impact.

Namibia has a critical role to play in leading southern Africa’s contribution to achieving global decarbonisation goals. Namibia is well positioned to be at the forefront of helping the world to achieve its decarbonisation targets while also providing the country and region with a blueprint for future renewable energy and green hydrogen project implementations. Our Executive Leadership Team and shareholder support teams bring together exceptional experience developing complicated infrastructure and energy projects in Africa, across the entire breadth of the value chain required to establish greenfield green hydrogen production and export. In addition, the executive leadership team has extensive commercial experience, having managed, operated and grown numerous businesses in Africa.

COP27

With COP27 being held in Africa this year, Hyphen wants to play its part in helping Namibia to show the world the leading role that Africa can take in powering the global energy transition.
