Enel and Eni to Develop Green Hydrogen Projects

Enel and Eni have joined forces to develop two green hydrogen projects.

The companies today (2nd Dec) announced the collaboration through which they will produce green hydrogen with 10MW electrolysers powered by renewable energy.

Located near two Eni refineries, it’s hoped the two pilots will start to produce green hydrogen by 2022-2023.

Commenting on the partnership, Francesco Starace, CEO and General Manager of Enel Group, said, “We are interested in exploring with Eni the promising green hydrogen sector. Together, we identified a couple of sites where we can start with the first projects.”

“The overall system we have in mind will be working as a closed loop whereby the electrolyser fed by renewable energy and the refinery will be at the same location, therefore avoiding the construction of complex transport infrastructure to move hydrogen around.”

Claudio Descalzi, Eni CEO, added, “This partnership in green hydrogen is part of Eni’s broader energy transition strategy. Our goal is to accelerate the reduction of our carbon footprint by implementing the best applicable low carbon solution, either green or blue, to reduce our direct emissions as well as switching to bio products to supply our clients.”
