Energy transition through green hydrogen.
The starting point for truly clean energy
Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element in the universe, although it is not a natural resource and is not found in isolation in nature, always combined in other compounds such as hydrocarbons or water, so it can be obtained from a wide variety of raw materials. However, only if it is obtained from sources free of carbon dioxide emissions is it possible to have a large-scale energy system with non-polluting gas emissions.
Green hydrogen is hydrogen produced from water and renewable energy. Water is decomposed using electricity from renewable energy, in our case solar energy. If the electricity is generated from renewable sources (photovoltaic or other), then a truly clean energy carrier is achieved.
This hydrogen is either stored after a compression process or injected into the gas grid.
The hydrogen acts as a storable “energy carrier” that can be converted back into electricity, creating a balancing service between electricity generators and consumers.
Green hydrogen roadmap
Spain’s Hydrogen Roadmap is a national commitment to renewable hydrogen, a plan to promote the deployment of this sustainable energy vector, which will be key to achieving climate neutrality with a 100% renewable electricity system by 2050 at the latest.
As part of the European Green Deal, it is based on the following:
– National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030.
– Climate Change and Energy Transition Law.
– Long-term Strategy for a Modern, Competitive and Climate Neutral Spanish Economy in 2050.
The European Green Pact sets out a series of milestones to be achieved:
Similarly, in the National Framework, the Spanish Hydrogen Roadmap establishes a succession of milestones to be achieved:
Vehicles or machinery that use hydrogen as an energy source use a fuel cell, rather than a traditional battery, to produce the power necessary for their operation.
Ansasol is in contact with companies in the sector, with the aim of signing collaboration agreements to publicise the possibility of using forklift trucks and equipment with combustion cells in logistics or industrial centres with green hydrogen dispensing, thus closing the generation-distribution-consumption circle.
Looking to the future
Green hydrogen value chain.
Ansasol, as a specialist in the development of photovoltaic projects and as an example of quality, has the best suppliers in the sector at national and international level, both for solar panels, inverters, etc… and for fuel cells, electrolysers or hydrogenerators.
