Establishing a fully-functioning Hydrogen (H2) ecosystem on the island of Mallorca (Spain) making the island into Southern Europe’s first H2 hub.
The GREEN HYSLAND project is developing a fully-functioning Hydrogen (H2) ecosystem in Mallorca through the production of green hydrogen from solar energy and delivering it to the end users (in the tourism, transport, industry and energy sectors). A renewable gas grid injection is part of this.
Further, the project will deliver a roadmap towards 2050 that compiles a long-term vision for the development of a widespread H2 economy in Mallorca and the Balearic Region. This is in line with the environmental objectives set for 2050.
Finally, the project will provide Europe with a blueprint for the decarbonization of island economies, and an operational example for the contribution of H2 towards the energy transition and the 2050 net zero targets.
Financial contributions come from the European Commission through the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and partners’ own resources.
Total investment: 50 million euro’s.
Start date: 1 January 2021
Eind datum: 1 January 2026
The concept of GREEN HYSLAND is based on the deployment of green H2 across the entire value chain on an island of sufficient scale, including the positioning of key infrastructure to supply green H2 to multiple FCH end-user applications.
The main goal is to showcase the capacity of H2 to decarbonize EU islands, maximizing the integration of RES, while facilitating widespread integration of Green H2 into Mallorca’s energy system. This may lead to Malloraca becoming the first integrated H2 hub at this scale in Southern Europe. GREEN HYSLAND will facilitate the energy transition in the region and decarbonization across multiple end-user applications.
New Energy Coalition contributes to the realization of an H2 Roadmap for Mallorca and the Balearic Islands to 2050 and a blueprint for the replication of H2 ecosystems to other EU island territories and beyond. In addition, NEC has a role in communication and dissemination activities. Finally, we aim to make the connection with the Heavven project that we coordinate.
