Évora is ideally located for FUSION-FUEL's technology, with high levels of solar irradiation, a closed-loop natural gas network, readily available land and good access roads and connections. The combination of these features make Évora a great location for FUSION-FUEL's first demonstrator facility.
55 HEVO-SOLAR generators will be deployed in the GreenGas project across two phases. Once commissioned, the plant will produce nearly 70 tons of green hydrogen per year, representing an avoidance of over 600 tons of CO2 emissions annually versus conventional hydrogen production.
The hydrogen produced at Évora will be used to establish a track record in use-cases: hydrogen blending in the natural gas network, conversion into electrical energy via a fuel cell and fed into the electric grid during periods of peak demand, and compression and bottling for industrial applications.
This will be Portugal’s first large scale project to produce green hydrogen from solar energy and blend green hydrogen at scale into a local natural gas distribution network.
