Khavharendwe Rambau is a postdoctoral researcher at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. Her work focuses on innovative ways of producing green hydrogen that can be used as an energy carrier within the energy generation sector.
She acts as a representative of South Africa to assist the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy committee, and is the first black woman in the world to be a member.
Rambau’s proudest moment was being the first in her family to graduate from university. “This has set an example to my siblings that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.”
Her aspiration? “I want to see a clean and just transition of South Africa to a green hydrogen economy, and to help poor South Africans have clean and affordable energy that has little impact on their health.”
“Follow your passion, and always strive to do the extraordinary.”
