France – HDF Energy to Develop Uganda First Hydrogen Plant



Uganda has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with French independent power producer HDF Energy to develop a green hydrogen power plant in Uganda, according to a statement issued late.


The statement jointly issued by HDF Energy and Uganda’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development did not detail the capacity of the plant or the size of the investment.


But if the plan comes to fruition, it would be the first hydrogen power plant in Uganda, which currently depends on hydro and thermal power plants but is eager to expand its generation capacity, especially in renewable energy.


The statement said:This MoU contributes to paving the way for the development of a first Renewstable power plant in Uganda.


The Renewstable is one of two models of hydrogen power plant developed by HDF. The company calls it a multi-megawatt plant that produces stable electricity 24 hours a day and combines an intermittent renewable energy source, such as solar panels, and on-site energy storage in the form of hydrogen.
