  • Mr. Oberholzer brings a wealth of knowledge of the energy sector in Africa to JER, continuing to strengthen the capability and knowledge base of the Board.

Mr. Oberholzer will be responsible for various advisory roles during the implementation and roll-out of the Solar to Green Hydrogen projects that JER has currently secured and is implementing in Mozambique, other countries in Southern Africa.
