Jearrard developing a 12GW peak solar to hydrogen facility in Mozambique

  • Jearrard Energy Resources (JER) and their subsidiary in Mozambique, Connect Plus Energy LDA, are developing a 12 GW peak solar to hydrogen facility, which will produce over 4000 tonnes of hydrogen per day.
  • This is to be followed by expanded technologies which includes wind energy.
  • Land for the mega facility has been secured in Inhambane Province.
  • The hydrogen produced will be piped to new port at Morrumbene for export.

“To satisfy the ever-increasing need for green energy and to speed up the delivery of Green Hydrogen the world so desperately needs, JER has developed a unique hybrid model which allows for third party Industrial partners to join with us to develop the solar to hydrogen plants on land that JER has prepared,” said Johann Kamp, Operations Director for Africa projects at JER.

“We are awaiting the final LIDAR scan reports and mapping to allow final designs on the production plants and pipeline. Most of the permits are in place with some permits to be finalised due to the routing of the pipeline which is dependent on the LIDAR reports. JER will provide all the necessary resources that are key for the large-scale production of hydrogen. This will include water suitable for the process NOT taken from the local environment as the company has a strong environmental and social ethos,” added Kamp.

The company has a similar large hydrogen production project under development in South Africa set to commence in Q3 2024.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
