The Department of Science and Technology in partnership with private sector companies has contributed hydrogen fuel technology that will use as standby power to improve education, in rural villages of Cofimvaba in the Eastern Cape.

The power generated by the fuel cells is used to support basic energy requirements, for example, charging stations for tablets, fax machines and computers.

The schools include Arthur Mfebe Senior Secondary School, St Marks Junior Secondary School and Mvuzo Junior Secondary School.

DST’s Natasha Mtize said the initiative is part of the broader intervention of the Departments to ensuring that Science and Technology Innovation contributes to improving the quality of teaching and learnings, the quality of basic education.

“We have prioritized the rural context to make sure that the work we do and the lessons that we can draw from this work that we do in the rural context, can be shared with Provincial Department of Education and National Basic Education, so that we are able to contribute to improving the quality of Basic Education.” Mtize added.
