• The initiative is part of a broader agreement between the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Tourism and the Government of the Balearic Islands with Enagás, ACCIONA, and CEMEX to reindustrialise the Lloseta area of Mallorca.
• The project, in which Enagás is participating, involves the development of a green hydrogen generation plant from renewable energy to supply a fleet of public transport buses.
• The agreement in part of Enagás’ commitment to developing non-electric renewable energies, such as hydrogen and biogas/biomethane, as new energy key solutions for the decarbonisation process.
Earlier today, the President of the Balearic Government, Francina Armengol, and the Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, presented the agreements that the Government of the Balearic Islands has reached with Enagás, ACCIONA and CEMEX to promote several industrial projects in the Lloseta area of Mallorca.
At the end of December, the Government of the Balearic Islands, Enagás, ACCIONA and CEMEX signed an agreement for the development of a plant to generate green hydrogen from renewable electrical energy, which will also require a PV solar park to be built.
This project is part of a public-private initiative that aims to promote the development of new clean energies in the Balearic Islands and to boost the economy of the region. Its aim is to use the hydrogen generated as an alternative fuel, initially for a fleet of public buses.
The event was attended by Enagás CEO Marcelino Oreja, who pointed out that “renewable gases play a fundamental role in the decarbonisation process”. Along the same lines, he pointed out that “it is necessary to value new alternatives that allow sustainable mobility, and hydrogen from renewable sources is a good option”.
This initiative is in line with the decarbonisation objectives set by the European Commission and with the horizon set by the Balearic Islands Bill: 35% renewable energies, 23% reduction in energy consumption and 40% reduction in polluting emissions by 2030.
For Enagás, the agreement is part of the its commitment to developing non-electric renewable energies, such as green hydrogen and biogas/biomethane, as new key energy solutions for the decarbonisation process, and in order to bring about a circular economy.
