Iberdrola and Fertiberia have signed an settlement for the development in Puertollano of the most important inexperienced hydrogen plant for industrial use in Europe, with an funding of 150 million euros. It will encompass a 100 MW photo voltaic photovoltaic plant, a lithium-ion battery system with a storage capability of 20 MWh and one of many largest electrolysis hydrogen manufacturing techniques on the planet (20 MW).
Decarbonising the planet is among the objectives that international locations around the globe have set for 2050. To obtain this, decarbonising the manufacturing of a component like hydrogen, giving rise to inexperienced hydrogen, is among the keys as that is at the moment accountable for greater than 2 % of complete world CO2 emissions.
This know-how relies on the era of hydrogen — a common, gentle and extremely reactive gas — by way of a chemical course of often known as electrolysis. This technique makes use of present to separate the hydrogen from the oxygen in water. If this electrical energy is obtained from renewable sources we are going to, subsequently, produce power with out emitting carbon dioxide into the ambiance.
As the IEA factors out, this technique of acquiring inexperienced hydrogen would save the 830 million tonnes of CO2 which can be emitted yearly when this gasoline is produced utilizing fossil fuels. However, there are some questions concerning the viability of inexperienced hydrogen due to its excessive manufacturing value; cheap doubts that may disappear because the decarbonisation of the earth progresses and, consequently, the era of renewable power turns into cheaper.
