• The companies will work together to promote green hydrogen in Spain
Within the framework of COP26, Solaria, a leading company in the development and generation of photovoltaic solar energy in Southern Europe, and Enagás, a leader in natural gas infrastructures, have signed an agreement to study the potential joint development of a green hydrogen terminal.
Solaria has decided to invest in this exponentially growing market with a leading company in its sector such as Enagás, with the aim of increasing the competitiveness and integration of photovoltaic solar energy in the energy system, also helping to reduce dependence on external energy sources.
This project, which involves the potential use of up to 200 MWp of photovoltaic solar energy for the production of green hydrogen, highlights the excellent synergies between the different renewable energy sources and the production of green hydrogen with the objective of advancing in the decarbonisation and the energy transition process.
Commitment to the energy transition in Spain
In this regard, Solaria, as a green energy generating company, contributes to the reduction of electricity dependence and to fulfilment of the objectives of the European Union, including the European Green Deal, supported by the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC) 2021-2030, to reduce emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
Thanks to this project, Solaria is aligned with the goals established by the Hydrogen Roadmap, which aims to reach 500 GW of electrolysers by 2050, and with the recovery plan of the Next Generation EU programme, which has a 750 billion euro fund.
As part of its commitment to sustainability, Enagás is committed to new, more efficient and sustainable energy solutions that enable it to meet the climate neutrality target set by the European Union and move towards a more sustainable model. For this to happen, our work is structured around three key lines of action: the development of renewable gases and their integration into existing gas infrastructures; the promotion of new gas uses in sectors such as transport, especially maritime transport; and energy efficiency as a vessel for optimising resources and reducing emissions.
This agreement dovetails perfectly with Enagás’ commitment to decarbonisation. The company will contribute its experience in promoting renewable gases as new key solutions for the energy transition through its subsidiary, Enagás Renovable.
