Iberdrola as well as Nel have authorized a memorandum of understanding to create and release large-scale electrolyser projects as well as advertise eco-friendly hydrogen's supply chain in Spain.

In order to provide this passion, the utility and Basque company Ingeteam have actually created a new firm, Iberlyzer, which will start procedures following year with the objective of integrating more than 200MW of electrolysers by 2023. The Iberlyzer industrial project will need a financial investment of almost EUR100 million ($119 million) as well as will create 150 jobs.

The 200MW outcome will certainly be predestined for the 2nd project of the Iberdrola-Fertiberia partnership, the initial of which was introduced previously this year as well as will couple 100MW of solar PV, a 20MWh lithium-ion battery system and a 20MW electrolyser.

The partnership with fertilizer producer Fertiberia has since been broadened and might see the installation of 800MW of eco-friendly hydrogen manufacturing capability over 4 phases, comparable to 20% of Spain's 2030 target, through a EUR1.8 billion financial investment over the following seven years.

Iberdrola revealed plans in September to develop a new service system concentrated on hydrogen that will certainly utilize 100% green power in the electrolysis process.

Ignacio Galán, CEO of Iberdrola, claimed the manufacture of electrolyser systems has high growth possibility.
