Future green hydrogen production center in Sines counts on INEGI's expertise

27 July 2023
«Moving2Neutrality» is the name of the mobilizing project that aims to meet the challenge of energy transition in transportation by producing sustainable fuels for carbon neutrality. It is also one of the 23 innovation agendas, supported by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), which has the contribution of INEGI.

The main objective of the project is to build a green hydrogen production center, using solar and wind energy for production, which contributes to the creation of synthetic and decarbonized fuels. Sines was chosen, due to the region's endogenous conditions, to become a hub for the production of green energy.

INEGI's team will coordinate two activities central to the project: the development of a planning tool for green hydrogen production plants and the development of an integrative energy management tool (EMS) for the operation of green hydrogen production plants.

The tools to be developed will make it possible to optimize the plants in their design phase, as well as contribute to greater efficiency in the use of energy in order to minimize the cost of the hydrogen produced, thus participating in the fulfillment of the objectives of ecological transition and digital transition..

Portugal's commitment to creating a green hydrogen production center is essential not only to boost the country's economy, but also to promote the energy transition and boost the transport sector towards a more sustainable future.

For Lucas Marcon, responsible for the project at INEGI, "Portugal has stood out on the world stage for its commitment to the production of green hydrogen as a way to boost the economy, taking advantage of its privileged location and abundance of sun and wind. important step in this direction, also contributing to promote the energy transition and create a more sustainable future for the transport sector”.

The «Moving2Neutrality» agenda is financed by the European Union through the Next Generation EU and the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), under the operational program Capitalization and Business Innovation.
