A strategy that includes giving a boost to the ecological transition and implementing a low-carbon model. A commitment that combines all available technologies on the road to sustainability.
The aim is to be a national and international benchmark in the development of green hydrogen production projects, from electrolysis to decarbonize heavy transport or industry.
Experience in the field of EPC
The newspaper stresses that this capability is coupled with experience in the EPC of large zero-emission power plants. In this regard, the group aims to be a pioneer in the field of hybridization of renewable generation plants.
To achieve this, the company is currently working on a pilot project, located at the headquarters in Albacete. The aim is to become familiar with the hydrogen production process and to draw operational conclusions through smart data monitoring and energy management systems.
Photovoltaic solar technology with electrolysis
This pilot combines photovoltaic solar technology with electrolysis. Therefore, during the day it will produce green hydrogen from renewable energy from the sun. This renewable hydrogen produced will serve two applications or use cases: on the one hand, to power a 5-tonne forklift truck (covering the sustainable mobility variable); and also to charge a stationary fuel cell that will generate electricity and return it to supply the building’s night-time consumption (serving as an energy storage system).
The technologies required, which are not mature, remain expensive. That is why industrial innovation projects such as this one are of vital importance for technology to advance and democratize on the road to energy transition.
