Biomass: The Key to Unlocking Africa's Hydrogen

by Charles Kusi Minkah-Premo An article in the August 2015 edition of the Environmental Progress & Sustainable Energy journal assesses Africa's promising hydrogen energy potential (HEP) from biomass. Africa's long-standing issues with electricity generation and access have been well documented. With Northern Africa and South Africa accounting for 30% and 45% respectively of the total

2nd Biomass Trade & BioEnergy Africa-Johannesburg-

Biomass offers a sustainable energy source that could be the answer to Africa's escalating electricity demand and cost. The International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) claims there is "immense potential" for hydropower, solar and biomass in Africa, and could supply 22% of Africa's total energy consumption by 2030.

Reducing landscape restoration costs: Feasibility of

The unit cost of biomass to electricity is very favourable, with a NPV/MWe of between US$7.19 and US$8.75/MWe, when assuming market prices for electricity of US$0.11/kW h (R1.60/kW h) and setting the IRR of 16% for the bioenergy entrepreneur. However, the feasibility hinges entirely on the sharing of cost for the biomass feedstock supply.
