Africa eyes China’s hydrogen truck technology

Replacement of diesel trucks with fuel-cell electric vehicles in Africa offers opportunity for strategic cooperation with China

Africa's hydrogen economy is likely to start out as a demand-driven market with decarbonisation of road haulage emerging as an early use case. This could see low-cost fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) become fertile ground for hydrogen cooperation between African countries and China, according to regional industry experts. African hydrogen development will take a gradual approach, with the short term focused on firming up domestic demand in promising areas such as baseload renewable power, green fertiliser production, off-grid independent power supply, waste-to-power and transport, according to Bamidele Adebisi, a board member at the African Hydrogen Partnership, a continent-wide industry
