Job Advert - Technical Advisor: Building a Green Hydrogen Economy in South Africa - H2.SA Programme

The H2.SA programme forms part of the Energy Cluster of programmes implemented by GIZ in cooperation with a variety of South African public sector partners.

The position of the Technical Advisor will mainly be on Component 2 of the programme:  Supporting actors to build a green hydrogen export economy in South Africa.  Component 2 aims to improve the conditions for companies to participate in a South African green hydrogen export economy. The impact hypothesis is that South African companies will respond to the global demand for green hydrogen and its downstream products and invest in H2/PtX projects. To do so, companies will benefit from the improvements in the enabling environment supported by the programme and will be able to leverage the knowledge gained from generic studies into specific investment projects, thereby reducing investment risks. It is assumed that a global market for H2/PtX will emerge and international support mechanisms  (e.g. H2Global) will create the necessary economic incentives for investments.
