First green hydrogen plant in Turkey; Spain announces aid for hydrogen projects

The partners anticipate that Turkey can add value by being a pioneer in this area and taking concrete steps.

South Marmara Development Agency, Enerjisa Üretim, Eti Maden, TÜBİTAK MAM, and ASPİLSAN Enerji have signed the corporate collaboration agreement to build a hydrogen plant in Bandırma, Balkesir, Turkey.

The Southern Marmara Region is ideal to try to support the hydrogen economy. South Marmara is chosen as the green hydrogen production hub due to its production of 12.50% of Turkey’s power, hosting Turkey’s most efficient renewable energy plants with renewable source-based electricity.

Serkan Keleşer sell pipes and will complete a chain by putting the boron carbide facility into operation in 2022. Boron also has many advantages in hydrogen and is used in making solid boron-hydrogen compounds with a lot of added value.

Miteco opens the call for aid to support hydrogen projects

The Spanish Official State Gazette (BOE) published the call for a line endowed with 150 million euros for pioneering renewable hydrogen projects, with commercial viability, for its production and local consumption in sectors that are difficult to decarbonise, such as industry or transport heavy.

This is one of the two lines of aid for promoting renewable hydrogen approved by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) within the Strategic Project for the Recovery and Economic Transformation of Renewable Energies, Renewable Hydrogen and Storage (PERTE ERHA).

The line will support projects with commercial viability for the local production and consumption of renewable hydrogen in sectors that are difficult to decarbonise, such as industry or heavy transport.

The application submission deadline is until 6th May, with the maximum aid per project is € 15 million. The Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE) will manage these grants, which will be awarded on a competitive basis and will support projects that combine, in an integrated manner, the production, distribution, and use of hydrogen in the same location.

It is one of the first four PERTE ERHA calls, which will mobilise an investment of more than €16,300 million.
