Hydrogen South Africa in the International Spotlight

South Africa’s science and technology sector will be in the spotlight when international experts and decision makers in the field of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells gather in the country later this year. Renewable energy is becoming a vital component in the energy portfolio of many countries worldwide. With hydrogen being seen to be one of the best options to store renewable energy, South Africa has made significant strides in renewable energy development through its Hydrogen South Africa (HySA) flagship project.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Career opportunities in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

WOMEN IN SCIENCE

Miss Kunjuzwa is currently in the process of completing her PhD in Chemistry from Wits and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

About Us

The Hydrogen South Africa Public Awareness, Demonstration and Education Platform (HySA PADEP) was created to market hydrogen technology locally and internationally.

The main aim of HySA PADEP is to create awareness, visibility and acceptance amongst the public, industries, entrepreneurs and key decision makers in South Africa about the challenges, benefits and safety of using hydrogen fuel cell technology in the alternative energy industry.

  • FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY

    To ensure optimal exposure of fuel cells that have already been installed at science centres.

  • SAFETY, CHALLENGES AND BENEFITS

    To inform and engage the public about the safety, challenges and benefits of using Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technologies.

  • ENCOURAGE INVESTMENT

    To create visibility and acceptance amongst entrepreneurs, industries and key decision makers to encourage invest .

  • CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

    Stimulate interest in the field by showcasing cutting edge research and profiling current and future careers to the youth.

HYDROGEN & FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY

Hydrogen is an energy carrier. It can store and move energy in a usable form from one place to another. Hydrogen can be produced by converting fossil fuels, or using energy from renewable sources such as wind, solar or biomass.

Fuel cells convert chemical energy into electricity, using hydrogen or other fuels and oxygen from the surrounding air. A fuel cell operates like a “battery” that does not run down or need electrical recharging.

HYSA CENTRES OF COMPETENCE

HySA Catalysis
The HySA Catalysis Competence Centre‘s major focus of research and development is on the fuel cell and fuel-processor catalysts and catalytic devices.

HySA Systems
The HySA Systems Integration and Technology Validation Competence Centre focuses on three main areas: combined heat and power; portable power and fuel cell vehicles.

HySA Infrastructure
The HySA Infrastructure Competence Centre‘s main research and development focus is technology development for hydrogen production, storage and delivery.
