Project Description

This study aims at developing a set of detailed energy pathway scenarios for South Africa to achieve, at lowest cost, ambitious decarbonisation targets up to 2050, to better inform ongoing and upcoming policy and expert discussions. The pathways to be developed demonstrate how and which PtX products can contribute to the decarbonization of power, transport and industrial sectors as well as consider the export potential of PtX products.
