We research into what will soon become an important part of the clean energy system.
Hydrogen (H2), the most abundant element in the universe, is a vector or "energy carrier" whose main added value in comparison with electricity is the fact that it can be stored.
As a pioneer in development and sustainability, ACCIONA maintains an active presence in this field. It is a member of a number of major organizations (AeH2, PTEHPC) carrying out research in this field, with the aim of being in the forefront of the use of hydrogen for energy purposes that is produced from clean and sustainable energy sources.
On the basis of the results of the SPHERA project, carried out under the CENIT program, ACCIONA has worked on the production of hydrogen from renewable energy sources. Our company is currently participating in the IRHIS project, the objective here being the development of efficient and competitive Spanish technologies for the integration of hydrogen systems into micro grids and energy supplies through renewable sources.
ACCIONA also participates in the DESPHEGA project within the framework of the INNPACTO program. It develops electrolyzers using high-capacity and highly efficient alkaline technologies for the production of hydrogen for energy from renewables, in particular wind power.
The purpose of the IRHIS project is the development of efficient and competitive Spanish technology to integrate hydrogen systems in microgrids via renewable energy sources.
The basic objective of the DESPHEGA project is the development of high-capacity and high-efficiency alkaline electrolyzers for the production of hydrogen for energy based on renewable energy sources, particularly wind power.
This project is supported by the CENIT programme and is aimed at developing the necessary technology for incorporating hydrogen into the energy system, paying special attention to the issue of obtaining it with renewable sources.
ACCIONA participates in most areas of work, including the production of hydrogen from renewable sources, handling, storage, distribution, supply, energy integration, the legal framework and business models.
