Evora is ideally located for FUSION-FUEL'S technology, it has high levels of solar irradiation, a closed circuit natural gas network, available land and good access roads and connections. The combination of these factors makes Evora a great location for FUSION-FUEL'S first utility scale demonstrator.
GreenGas is a solar to hydrogen power plant using CPV solar panels in combination with HEVO electrolyzers. It consists of two phases and will produce nearly 70 tons of Green Hydrogen per year, represents an avoidance of over 600 tons of CO2 emissions annually versus conventional hydrogen production.
A portion of the hydrogen output will be used to mix into the natural gas network in Évora. The remaining hydrogen will be either stored and converted into electrical energy via fuel cells and fed into the electric grid, or it will be bottled and sold for industrial applications.
It will be Portugal’s first large scale project to produce Green Hydrogen from solar energy and to blend Green Hydrogen at scale into a local natural gas distribution network.
