Nigeria and Germany are set to collaborate on the $130 billion global hydrogen market

Vice President Kashim Shettima expresses Nigeria’s commitment to developing its green energy sector through this partnership.

The goal is to align the country’s hydrogen market with its renewable energy objectives and the global transition from fossil fuels to green sources.

During a meeting with a German delegation led by Hydrogen Commissioner Till Mansmann, Vice President Shettima emphasized the importance of a strong partnership between the two countries.

He highlighted the potential for Nigeria to lead the way in hydrogen development, which could have a positive impact on the entire African continent.

Mansmann also stressed the importance of collaboration with Nigeria and institutions like the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), in achieving Germany’s National Hydrogen Strategy.

He recognized Nigeria’s significant potential in green energy, particularly hydrogen production, and emphasized the role of universities in fostering innovation and nurturing future talent.

Overall, the partnership between Nigeria and Germany in developing the hydrogen market is seen as crucial for achieving global energy transformation goals and combating climate change.

Germany’s transition to carbon neutrality by 2045 will require a significant shift towards green energy imports, with Africa and Nigeria being identified as key players in this transition.
