Project: Green Hysland
Funder: Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU)
Funding: € 20,700,000
Project timeline: 2021 – 2025

GREEN HYSLAND aims to deploy a fully-functioning Hydrogen (H2) ecosystem in the island of Mallorca, Spain, turning the island into Europe’s first H2 hub in Southern Europe. This will be achieved by producing green hydrogen from solar energy and delivering it to the end users, such as the island’s tourism, transport, industry and energy sectors, including gas grid injection for green heat and power local end-use.
The GREEN HYSLAND demonstrations will provide Europe with a blueprint for decarbonization of island economies, and an operational example of the contribution of H2 towards the energy transition and the 2050 net zero targets.The development of replication experiences and business models are foreseen in five other EU islands (Madeira – PT, Tenerife – ES, Aran – IE, Greek Islands and Ameland – NL) and beyond (Chile and Morocco).
EMEC will support the replication aspect of the project using on knowledge and expertise gained in previous hydrogen projects and activities such as BIG HIT, supporting the deployment of a hydrogen network to other EU islands
