Innovative energy solutions for Namibia

The HygO project represents an innovative approach to addressing Namibia’s energy and water supply challenges. Based on the findings of the HyTrA project, HygO extends these by integrating water treatment technologies. The aim is to create a self-sufficient, sustainable energy system that supplies both green hydrogen and clean drinking water. This initiative is particularly relevant in a country characterized by water scarcity and a high demand for renewable energy sources.


Core components and technology

At the heart of the HygO project is an innovative microgrid system that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen and simultaneously purifies drinking water. This technology is not only environmentally friendly, but also specially tailored to Namibia’s climatic and geographical conditions. The efficiency and adaptability of the system enables a reliable energy and water supply that is both economically and ecologically sustainable.

Sustainable development and socio-economic impact

The HygO project makes a significant contribution to various Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including education, clean water, clean energy, economic growth and climate action. By promoting hydrogen technology, it creates new jobs and growth opportunities in Namibia while strengthening cooperation between Germany and Namibia. HygO serves as a model for the integration of environmental protection and socio-economic development by providing innovative solutions to pressing global challenges.
