The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. GIZ has been working in South Africa since 1995. One of the core areas of cooperation is climate and energy.

H2.SA is a project of the German Development Cooperation with South Africa. It is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close cooperation with The Presidency of South Africa. H2.SA's main objective is to promote a South African green and sustainable hydrogen economy. Working closely with its partners from Government, private sector, and civil society, H2.SA provides expertise, resources, and builds capacity for a secure and sustainable energy future that holds opportunities for all South Africans. The programme is organised in four workstreams:

  • WS 1: Strategy Development and Regulatory Framework
  • WS 2: Private Sector Engagement and Support
  • WS 3: Training, Research, and Innovation
  • WS 4: Sustainability and Just Transition

Despite the promising conditions for the development of a GH2 economy in South Africa, certain challenges persist. A capacity and knowledge deficit exist in South Africa on GH2 and PtX as it is a very new topic. Extensive capacity building and training efforts are required to support public and private sector stakeholders to build up the South African green H2 economy. To address the capacity building and training requirements of South African decision-makers, GIZ will implement a variety of training, capacity building, and information dissemination events on green hydrogen.  To enable the experience to be as informative as possible, H2.SA wishes to appoint a South African provider to implement classroom-style demonstrations of the hydrogen electrolysis process. The service provider should host a series of up to twenty (20) demonstrations at selected events.

GIZ invites eligible and professional companies with a local presence in South Africa to participate in this tender. Tender documents are available for downloading below.

Your proposal must be submitted to by 06 October 2023. Please quote reference 83448028 when submitting the documentation. Late submissions will not be accepted.
