The Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca project, led by Enagás and Acciona Energía, with the collaboration of IDAE and Cemex, garnered an award in the latest edition of the Retina ECO Awards in the “Green Generation” category.
The second edition of the awards, organised by PRISA Media and Capgemini, was held in Madrid and hosted by HM Queen Letizia. The Third Vice President of the Government of Spain and Minister for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, also attended the ceremony.
The aim of the awards is to recognise the most outstanding projects by organisations and companies involved in the fight against climate change, sustainability and technological innovation. Specifically, the “Green Generation” category recognises innovative and technology-based projects for the generation of clean and renewable energies, their distribution and transmission or storage.
The Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca project aims to contribute to decarbonising the Balearic Islands through the first industrial renewable hydrogen plant in Spain.
The Chairman of Enagás, Antonio Llardén, and the Chief Executive Officer of Acciona Energía, Rafael Mateo, received the award from Queen Letizia. In addition, Antón Martínez, Enagás Renovable y Servicios General Manager, spoke at the event, highlighting the success of the public-private partnership in this project, which also has the support of the Balearic Government.
The award winners were chosen by a jury made up of various respected figures in Spain, as well as industry experts such as Sara Aagesen, Secretary of State for Energy, and Cristina Rivero, Director of Industry, Energy, Environment and Climate at CEOE, among others.
