Green Hydrogen Vision

Angola aims to increase its renewable energy capacity to 70% by 2025 with the development of several renewable energy projects through PPPs in solar energy is currently underway, with the implementation of 30,000 off-grid systems with a total capacity of 600MW. The US government has also committed $2 billion in solar energy projects. Of the 47 river basins, Angola uses only 5% and has the potential to increase its hydroelectric production to 18 GW. Plans are underway to deploy large-scale hydroelectric projects along the Kwanza, Cunene, Catumbela and Keve rivers. Angola has another 3 GW of wind capacity that can be exploited in the future.  


Angola aims to export around 280,000 tons of green ammonia to Germany by 2024 through Germany's Hydrogen global green hydrogen program.
