The municipality of Luceta, in Mallorca, this week inaugurated the first renewable hydrogen plant on the Iberian Peninsula.
The “Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca” project is led by ACCIONA Energía and Enagás, with the participation of CEMEX and IDAE. This is part of Green Hysland, a project supported by the European Union and coordinated by Enagás, which supports the implementation of the infrastructure needed to build a renewable hydrogen ecosystem on the island of Mallorca, and helps achieve the environmental goals set by the islands government.
Industrial production of renewable hydrogen at the facilities will be implemented gradually and when the infrastructure and consumption equipment is ready. Once the green hydrogen ecosystem is implemented, the goal will be to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on the island by up to 21,000 tons annually. Part of the green hydrogen will be transported through Spain’s first hydraulic pipeline, which Redexis will build on the island, and which can be injected into the company’s natural gas distribution network in Palma de Mallorca.
Green hydrogen will have multiple applications on the island of Mallorca, such as providing clean fuel for bus fleets, producing heat and electricity for commercial and public buildings and creating a filling station.
