Islands, because of their remoteness and lack of connections, often have to be creative when it comes to their energy and electrical systems. In Spain, the Canary Islands Institute of Technology (ITC) has been developing innovative solutions to increase Renewable Energy Sources (RES) penetration in small and weak insular electrical grids for over 25 years. They have become experts in green hydrogen technologies, developing demonstration projects combining RES and hydrogen.
On the 28th of November, Green Hysland has thus chosen Gran Canaria as location for its second workshop. Representatives from ITC shared their expertise on green hydrogen, notably from the BIOGREENFINERY project which will demonstrate the technical feasibility and the economic viability of green hydrogen and synthethic fuels associated with transport.
Representatives from Green Hysland presented the hydrogen ecosystem currently being developed in Mallorca, and the various aspects related to the project: administrative processing, storage, transport, etc.
Participants exchanged on the role of hydrogen economies in European islands, the challenges and opportunities ahead.
