Euronews Debates: Can Europe electrify quickly to meet its energy and climate targets?

Euronews Debates: Can Europe electrify quickly to meet its energy and climate targets?

Watch highlights from Euronews’ live debate in the European Parliament, where we brought together experts from politics, policy and industry to discuss rolling out renewables, building new smart grids, and hitting net zero by 2050. Europe is on the road to rapid electrification. In this Euronews debate, we discussed how the new European Parliament...

Euronews Debates: Electrifying Europe - how can we do it?

Euronews Debates: Electrifying Europe - how can we do it?

Europe is on the road to a rapid transition in the electricity sector to meet its aims regarding containing energy prices and its ambitious climate goals. But after the EU elections in June, the incoming Parlament and Commission will have to carry out these energy reforms as they strive to achieve net zero by 2050. Will Europe be on track and will anything change with the...


Green hydrogen plant for industrial use

Europe's most ambitious innovation project to promote decarbonization of industrial sectors

100% renewable hydrogen for emission-free ammonia and fertilizer production

  • Icon Investment 150 M€
  • Icon Local jobs 700
  • CO₂ CO2 avoided emissions 39000 tCO2/year

Distribution network

The surplus energy generated in the photovoltaic plant is fed into the distribution network for commercialization.


Green hydrogen production

production system

Green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis cells powered by both the energy generated by the photovoltaic plant and the battery energy storage system, in a process with no associated CO2 emissions and allowing the electrification of industrial sectors.

The production process is carried out with a polymer electrolysis system with a 20 MW power supply and a capacity to generate 360 kg/hour of hydrogen.


H2 tanks

tanks H2

The storage of green hydrogen is essential to guarantee the stability of supply required by the Fertiberia plant and to make efficient use of renewable energy production. A total of 11 tanks that allow the storage of 6,000 kg of green H2 at 60 bars.

Each tank has a volume of 133 m3 and dimensions of 23.5 m height and 2.8 m in diameter. They weigh 77 tonnes empty and are made of a special steel with a sheet thickness of 4.5 cm to contain hydrogen, given the small size of this particle.




The project includes a 5MW lithium-ion battery system, with a storage capacity of 20MWh, which allows for greater plant manageability and optimisation of control strategies.


Puertollano II photovoltaic plant

Photovoltaic plants

The new facility for the production of green H2 from 100% renewable sources consists of a solar photovoltaic plant with an installed capacity of 100 MW.

The installation incorporates state-of-the-art technologies, such as bifacial panels, which allow for higher production by having two light-sensitive surfaces, and string inverters, which improve performance and make better use of the surface area.


Underground power line

Dedicated underground power line for exclusive use to ensure that all energy used in the electrolyser is renewable and environmental impact is minimised.


Fertiberia Plant

The innovation project is an ambitious initiative to decarbonize a key industrial process, such as the manufacture of fertilizers, which will allow progress towards more sustainable agriculture.

The investment allows improvement of industrial processes, making them more sustainable through the production and consumption of green hydrogen without associated emissions and improving the performance of the processes involved.
