Green hydrogen is expected to become one of the pillars of economic growth, for it is a decisive energy vector in the decarbonization process for the main sectors of the economy. This project will enable the transition of a former coal-fired power plant into an innovative renewable hydrogen production hub, in alignment with Europe’s decarbonization and energy transition strategies.
With the creation of a ‘hydrogen valley’ centred in Sines, GreenH2Atlantic will significantly contribute to the sustainability goals of the region and Portugal, providing an important contribution to the European energy roadmap.
Efacec’s contribution is based on the innovation that it brings to the value chain of this project, which is disruptive at a European level, and which will include the development and supply of an energy conversion platform, taking advantage of Efacec’s competences in power and control electronics, engineering and systems integration.
Through this project, the Portuguese company reinforces its commitment to building a more sustainable future and reiterates its commitment to bringing know-how and innovation to the development of green products and solutions that respond to the major global challenges.
Note: The project GreenH2Atlantic has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement nº 101036908.
