Iberdrola announces plan to study large-scale green H2 with BP, Enagas

PVTech:

Spanish energy giant Iberdrola has partnered with oil and gas majors bp and Enagas on a feasibility study to develop a large-scale green hydrogen project in Valencia.

The project will be based at bp’s refinery in Castellón, replacing the grey hydrogen that is currently used in the production of biofuel.

It will be comprise of a 20MW electrolyser powered by renewable energy, including a 40MW solar PV system, although it is hoped that the electrolyser’s capacity could be scaled up to 115MW at a later stage

The project, which will require a US$90 million investment to construct, could start commercial operations in 2023, according to a statement from Iberdrola.

Carlos Barrasa, bp Spain’s chairman, said the study “reinforces our commitment to hydrogen as a fuel of the future”.

It is the second green hydrogen partnership Iberdrola has announced this month. The company said it is also planning to build a solar-plus-hydrogen power project at ceramic tile maker Porcelanosa’s factory in Villarreal to decarbonise its production process. The company revealed plans to form a new business unit focused on hydrogen last September that will use 100% green energy in the electrolysis process, in a bid to respond to the electrification and decarbonisation needs of industry and heavy transport.
