Green Hydrogen: Towards Just Energy Futures

Green energy transitions, such as the development of Namibia’s green hydrogen industry, hold the potential to attend to both crises simultaneously. However, questions remain about how the benefits of these transitions will be generated and distributed.

The event features a presentation by Dr William Monteith, Queen Mary University of London; and responses by Dr Phillip Lühl, Namibian Uniersity of Science and Technology; and participation from colleagues from other institutions.
