๐Ÿ“œ๐Ÿ”‹ The Vahia 2030 project, aimed at promoting the deployment of green hydrogen, has held a strategic meeting with the aim of taking new steps to make the pilot plant planned for the port of Alicante a reality. The members of this body, which includes entities such as the Department of Innovation, Industry, Trade and Tourism, the Provincial Council, entrepreneurs and the Port Authority itself, are working on obtaining funding for both this initiative and for others that may go ahead, which is why they have made a collaboration proposal to La Caixa.

The mission of this alliance of companies and institutions, Vahia 2030, includes the search for and development of innovative projects related to green hydrogen, ranging from its generation and storage to its use. In particular, one of its main proposals is the creation of a pilot plant for the generation of green hydrogen in the port of Alicante. This plant will provide hydrogen to companies interested in this technology, promoting sustainable mobility within the port area.

๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ’ฌ MITECO submits to public information the future call for proposals for grants for large renewable hydrogen valley projects

๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿž๏ธ #MITECO, #hydrogen, #hydrogenovergreen, #NextGenEU, #RePowerEU, #renewableenergy

๐Ÿ“œ๐Ÿ”‹ The Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) has launched a public hearing on the draft order of bases that will govern the future call for the aid programme for the creation of large renewable hydrogen valleys or clusters, which can be consulted here. The initiative will be endowed with NextGenEU funds linked to component 31 of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (PRTR) and the European Commission’s RePowerEU mechanism.

๐Ÿ”‹๐ŸŒ The purpose of these incentives is to promote the large-scale production and consumption of renewable and electrolytic hydrogen, as well as derived fuels, to promote the full integration of this vector in the Spanish energy mix and as a tool to advance in the decarbonisation of different industrial sectors of our economy.

๐Ÿญโšก The future call for aid, which will be managed by the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), a body dependent on the MITECO, represents a qualitative and quantitative leap in the prospects for the production and use of renewable hydrogen and derivatives in Spain. The renewable hydrogen clusters or valleys that this initiative aims to promote are key to achieving these objectives by bringing together, in a specific location, multiple stages of the hydrogen value chain; from production, storage and distribution to various users, such as the transport sector, industry and end energy users.

๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ”‹ The supersonic, hydrogen-powered, autonomous aircraft is moving forward in its development. After months of preparation, Destinus added a major milestone by proceeding with the ignition of its hydrogen-powered prototype engine.

๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ”ฌ As the startup with significant Spanish participation explains: “The test yielded data, validated fuel and combustion system models, instrumentation strategies and the injector design and manufacturing process using 3D printed alloys. The engine demonstrated solid stability, firing repeatedly with exceptional consistency and accuracy, aligning closely with expectations set by in-house computational tools,” the company says.

๐Ÿ”๐Ÿš€ The next phase involves increasing engine speed, targeting idle (approximately 50% of maximum engine speed) and maximum take-off power. These tests are integral to validating the technologies developed and understanding the behaviour of the system with hydrogen as fuel, both from a combustion and fueling system perspective.

๐Ÿ”ง๐Ÿ”ฌ This information will be crucial for the development of related systems and tests, such as those involving cryogenic LH2 (liquid hydrogen) or a dedicated hydrogen-powered afterburner designed for the Destinus-3 demonstrator.

๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’จ Floating wind and renewable hydrogen: an opportunity for the EU and the UK

๐Ÿ”‹๐Ÿš€ #floatingwind, #hydrogen, #renewable, #EU, #UK, #energytransition, #renewableenergy

๐Ÿ“ˆ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ As a hydrogen expert, I view with great interest the potential of floating wind combined with green hydrogen production to meet ambitious EU and UK targets.

๐Ÿญ๐ŸŒฑ Both blocs have set ambitious targets for renewable hydrogen: the EU aims for 10 million tonnes by 2030 and the UK doubled its target to 10 GW of production capacity by the same year. Floating wind is emerging as a key technology to harness the huge potential of offshore wind, especially in deep waters where fixed wind turbines are not viable.

๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ’ก An interesting aspect of this study is the possibility of adapting tax incentive policies, such as the US Inflation Reduction Act, to accelerate the deployment of this technology in Europe. The US tax credit for clean hydrogen production (Section 45V) is one example.

๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ” The research analyses how the application of these incentives could reduce the levelised cost of hydrogen (LCoH) produced from floating wind. Three scenarios are explored: no tax credits, base credits (100% of value) and maximum credits (100% plus bonuses and multipliers).

๐Ÿ”ง๐Ÿ“ˆ The results suggest that tax credits would accelerate the deployment of floating wind projects for hydrogen. This would prompt key actors to consider this promising avenue and unlock its potential to achieve green hydrogen targets.

๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒ In my view, this study presents an innovative regulatory pathway for coupling floating wind to hydrogen production in Europe. The findings provide valuable information for EU and UK policy makers to assess the feasibility of adapting the tax credit model and stimulating the production of hydrogen and its derivatives.

๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒฟ Although the research focuses on US funding, it opens up a crucial debate on the need for similar regulatory frameworks in Europe to boost floating wind power and green hydrogen. This technological combination could be a decisive factor in meeting decarbonisation targets and positioning the EU and the UK as leaders in the clean energy transition.

๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ”‹ As a hydrogen expert, it is with great enthusiasm that I see the concept of Hydrogen Valleys being promoted by Austria. This initiative represents a key step in the transformation of the country’s energy and economic system towards climate neutrality. Green hydrogen, obtained from renewable sources, is a central element for decarbonising industrial sectors that are difficult to electrify, as well as for sustainable mobility in air and maritime transport. Austria’s national hydrogen strategy, published in 2022, sets ambitious targets to achieve this goal.

๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ‘ฅ Building on the success of previous projects, Austria proposes the creation of Hydrogen Valleys in different geographical areas. Following the definition of the European Commission, a Hydrogen Valley is an area where clean hydrogen is produced and used locally in households, transport and industry. These valleys are not only a vision for the future, but are politically supported and aligned with European and global plans. The Mission Innovation initiative, for example, aims to develop 100 large-scale Hydrogen Valleys by 2030.

๐Ÿ”ง๐ŸŒ Austria envisages three Hydrogen Valleys with different foci along the value chain:

  • Alpine Valley: located in the west of the country and characterised by difficult to access tourist regions and important connections to Germany, Italy and Switzerland. Hydrogen infrastructure, the use of gas networks and the construction of interconnection networks will be prioritised here.
  • Valley of Industry: Located in the centre of Austria, it is home to energy-intensive industries such as steel and chemicals. It also has large natural gas deposits that are being investigated for hydrogen storage.
  • H2REAL Valley: This will be developed around Vienna, the capital, and will integrate the entire hydrogen value chain: production, distribution, logistics and end use. This valley will be an example of synergistic development between key players to scale hydrogen infrastructure for the future.

๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ”‹ The implementation of the Hydrogen Valleys will allow Austria to:

  • Demonstrate solutions for the future hydrogen economy in different regions.
  • Support the transformation of the energy system by replacing fossil fuels with renewables.
  • Develop hydrogen transport networks to meet growing energy demand.

๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ”‹ In short, the Hydrogen Valleys are Austria’s strategic commitment to accelerate its transition to a clean and sustainable economy.
