Iberdrola leads the development of green hydrogen

In its mission to lead the energy transition, Iberdrola is spearheading the development of green hydrogen with over 60 projects in eight countries (Spain, the United Kingdom, Brazil, the United States, among others) to meet the demand for electrification and decarbonisation in sectors such as industry and heavy transport. The company has created a new green hydrogen business unit with the aim of becoming the world leader in this technology. The group is addressing the technological challenge of producing and supplying green hydrogen from clean energy sources, powering the electrolytic process with 100 % renewable electricity.

Europe's largest green hydrogen plant for the production of zero emissions fertilisers

The Puertollano (Ciudad Real) plant will consist of a 100 MW photovoltaic solar plant, a lithium-ion battery system with a storage capacity of 20 MWh and one of the largest electrolytic hydrogen production systems in the world (20 MW). All from 100% renewable sources.

A total of 150 million euros has been invested in the project, an initiative that will create up to 700 jobs and avoid emissions of 48.000 tCO2/year.

Green hydrogen is a great growth vector for Iberdrola

As part of its investment plan between now and 2030 amounting to €150bn, green hydrogen will be a major vector for growth. Iberdrola is already developing several projects that will enable the decarbonisation of industry and heavy transport in Spain and the UK as well as developing its value chain. The group currently has a green hydrogen portfolio that will require investments of more than €3 billion by 2030 for the production of 134,000 tonnes per year. The company has also submitted 54 projects to the EU's Next Generation programme, which would trigger investments of €2.5bn to reach green hydrogen production of 60,000 tonnes/year.
