Iberdrola has obtained a positive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the photovoltaic plant in Puertollano which will supply energy to the first and also the largest green hydrogen production plant to be launched for industrial use in Europe.

The renewables project, with 100 MW of installed capacity, brings together several innovative elements, both from a technological point of view and in terms of storage capacity:

- The installation will have bifacial panels which have never been used before in company projects and which allow for greater production since they have two light-sensitive surfaces, meaning that the installation will have a longer useful life;

- The plant has been designed with cluster or “string” inverters, which improve the yield and allow better use of the surface area;

- The project will have a storage system, which will facilitate plant management. The battery system (with a power of 5 MW) will have a storage capacity of 20 MWh.

With a total investment of 150 million EUR, including the photovoltaic plant, the storage system and a 20 MW electrolyser, the project will create 700 jobs.

The project is planned to come into operation in 2021 and, once this happens, it will prevent the emission of 39,000 tCO2/year and the clean energy generated will be used to produce green hydrogen for the Fertiberia group's plant in the town, thereby making it the first European company in its sector to be able to produce green fertilisers.
