Project description

GH2 and its derivatives, Power-to-X (PtX), have emerged as a key element in the global energy transition. GH2 and PtX offer a promising pathway to decarbonize hard-to-abate industries such as steel, cement, aviation, shipping, and heavy-duty transport, while also addressing the intermittency and storage challenges of renewable energy sources.
Since mid-2019, GFA has been at the forefront of global GH2/PtX development, and has realized international technical and financial cooperation projects for international development banks and development agencies such as the German Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Drawing on our extensive and in-depth sector expertise, we have assisted the governments of Algeria, Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco, Viet Nam, Nigeria, Senegal, and South Africa, among others, to create and enable regulatory, legal, and policy environments for the GH2/PtX market ramp-up.
Our services range from the alignment of relevant policies and regulations on GH2/PtX and the development of GH2 strategies and roadmaps, to market assessments and the preparation of frameworks, to technical and economic advice on the scalability of GH2/PtX applications, including inter alia:

  • Value chain analyses
  • Environmental and Social Impact Assessments for GH2/PtX projects
  • Relevant GH2/PtX project management & procurement process
  • Development of financing solutions for GH2/PtX projects
