During its recent council meeting the Puglia Region approved bill n. 831. The bill titled ” Regulations on the promotion of the use of hydrogen and provisions concerning the renewal of existing plants for the production of electricity from wind and for photovoltaic conversion of the solar source “.
The objective of the law is to favor the modernization processes of the electricity production plants from renewable sources that are presently existing on the regional territory.
So as not to disrupt the infrastructure assets already built,the law looks to optimize the use of the existing assets through the use of renewable energy through the production of hydrogen.
The electricity produced by renewable energy plants that are not fed into the grid and not consumed on site, can thus be used to produce hydrogen, through the electrolysis of water, which in turn can be used to generate electricity and heat for public and private buildings, and as an energy carrier for hydrogen mobility.
