In a statement, Enel Brazil said it had signed a memorandum of understanding with the government of Ceará to develop green hydrogen projects there.
According to Enel Green Power, which is a renewable power arm of its parent company, the initiative aims to reduce carbon emissions. This project aims to analyze assumptions influencing green hydrogen production feasibility.
Through a process of water electrolysis using renewable energy, the study will focus on the development of a green hydrogen production plant in the state of Ceará. Hydrogen is manufactured through electrolysis.
Based on the feasibility study, the company will identify potential projects, investments, and deadlines for implementation.
“Ceará has strong potential for wind and solar generation, and we have studies in progress for future project development. We want to do the same with green hydrogen, working together with our partners and technology suppliers, following our purpose of open innovation, whose collaborative environment can contribute to find competitive solutions faster,” said, in a statement, the responsible for business development of Enel Green Power in Brazil, Jean Philippe Bellavia.
There is a possibility of an extension of the partnership after five years.
