Renewables Now:

Brazilian solar panel maker Sengi Solar has signed an agreement with the Brazilian state of Parana to build a green hydrogen production facility in the state, the local government announced on Wednesday.

The construction of the plant will require an investment of BRL 50 million (USD 10m/EUR 9m).

Besides renewable hydrogen, the facility will also produce oxygen.

The statement was made during the 1st Parana Renewable Hydrogen Forum. At the event, governor Ratinho Junior made several announcements regarding the future of green hydrogen production in the southern state such as credit lines totalling BRL 500 million to foster investments in the sector and tax exemption for the hydrogen production chain.

Ratinho Junior also launched the local Green Energy Programme and signed the Descomplica H2R resolution, which establishes criteria for the environmental licensing of green hydrogen and sanctioned the bill that creates a state policy for renewable hydrogen.
