November 18 (Renewables Now) - Hydrogene de France SA (EPA:HDF), or HDF Energy, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Uganda’s government that could pave the way for its first Renewstable power plant in the African country.
The Renewstable concept is a green alternative to diesel power plants that combines a photovoltaic (PV) plant and energy storage through a hydrogen chain.
The MoU was signed by Uganda’s energy minister Ruth Nankabirwa Ssentamu and Nicolas Lecomte, HDF director for Southern and East Africa, at COP27 this week.
“Uganda has been talking about green hydrogen for a long time, with our energy mix, we want to capture whatever energy source we have,” said Ruth Nankabirwa Ssentamu.
