The president of the Government Francina Armengol headed the presentation of the Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca project promoted by the regional government and the companies CEMEX, Enagás, Acciona and Redexis. The execution of the project will provide a green hydrogen production plant in 2021 to supply vehicles with sustainable energy, both public (through EMT buses) and private fleets (rent a cars, courtesy vehicles), as well as the hotel plants of the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença, and to the industrial estate of Inca.
Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca is an innovative project, which aims to be a point of reference for future initiatives in the field of green energy. The objective is to develop various actions for the generation, distribution and consumption of clean energy from renewable hydrogen obtained through photovoltaic energy. The initiative also has the direct involvement of the Institute for Diversification and Energy Saving (IDAE).
The representatives of the four companies participated in the public presentation to show a first approximation of the scope of the project, which has a budget of about 50 million euros and that will allow a generation of up to 10 Mw of production, according to needs. When fully operational, the facility will be able to avoid the daily production of up to 16,000 tons of CO2 per year or, in the equivalent, save 3,300 specimens of Balearic oak.
The Govern appreciates that with the implementation of this ambitious project, a pioneer in Spain since it is the first time that hydrogen will be generated on an industrial scale, a clear double objective will be sought: moving towards the decarbonization of the Islands, with zero emissions of CO2 in the 2050 horizon, and participating in the transformation of the Balearic economy, with a greater diversification of the economy and a greater commitment to sustainable industries.
Hydrogen is a clean and renewable energy and will be one of the many topics to be addressed at AltFuels Iberia 2019, taking place on 11-14 June at IFEMA Trade Fair Center, in Madrid. It will be an event consisting of first level conferences and exhibition of vehicles of all kinds, refueling stations, components, plants, road and marine engines, as well as the entire universe of the alternative fuels industry with the latest technological developments, multiple options for networking, business and new advances.
