LONDON (ICIS)–The renewable hydrogen production hub in Modena, Italy, will receive funding from the regional government of Emilia Romagna for the project’s development.

The project, set to produce 400 tonnes/year (15.8GWh) of renewable hydrogen, is a joint project by Hera and Snam and will receive a total of €19.5m as part of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP).

The area will host a 6MW solar farm connected to an electrolyser with a battery installed for the facility to produce hydrogen overnight.

Hera and Snam have a joint investment of €20.8m in the project, which is forecast to supply local public transport companies with fuel for vehicles and the local industrial sector.

Herambiente will be responsible for building the solar farm, while Snam will conduct the development of the hydrogen production plant.

Earlier this week, the European Commission approved a €450m support package to aid the production of renewable hydrogen in Italy, in line with the Green Industrial Plan.

Italy has aims to have 5GW of electrolyser capacity by 2030 to produce renewable hydrogen within the country with as much as €10bn due to be invested before 2030 from the Ministry of Economic Development.
