“The electricity crisis in our county continues to undermine economic growth and investment. Load shedding damages businesses, disrupts households and compromises the provision of social services,” he stated.

To ensure that installed generation capacity meets rising energy demand, the President encouraged investment in green hydrogen and other clean energy alternatives, along with highlighted emerging opportunities in rare earth and platinum group minerals for green manufacturing.

It is estimated that South Africa has the potential to produce between six and 13 million tons of green hydrogen and derivatives per year by 2050, which would require between 140 and 300 GW of renewable energy.
