Iberdrola forms new business unit to focus on green hydrogen development

Iberdrola has launched a new business unit focusing on green hydrogen projects.

Iberdrola will commit to using 100% renewable electricity in the electrolysis process to meet electrification and decarbonisation needs of sectors such as industry and heavy transport, the company stated.

Iberdrola has already initiated projects in Spain and the UK, with an investment of €150m.

In Spain, in Puertollano in Ciudad Real, the company is developing the largest green hydrogen plant for industrial use in Europe, which will be commissioned in 2021. The green hydrogen produced will be used in the Fertiberia ammonia factory in Puertollano.

The project will comprise a 100MW solar photovoltaic plant, a lithium-ion battery system with a storage capacity of 20 megawatt hours and a 20MW electrolyser.

In the UK, through its subsidiary ScottishPower, Iberdrola is participating in the Green Hydrogen for Scotland project, which will implement a network of green hydrogen production plants to supply fleets and heavy transport. The first of these will be located on the outskirts of Glasgow and will use solar and wind energy to supply a 10MW electrolysis unit.
