Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca, a venture led by ACCIONA Energía (MCE: ANE) and Enagás, in partnership with CEMEX and IDAE, has started tests to produce renewable hydrogen at its facilities in Lloseta (Mallorca).
The electrolyzer that splits water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen atoms is powered by renewable energy supplied by two photovoltaic plants located in Lloseta (8.5 MW) and Petra (5.85 MW).

The plant will begin producing green hydrogen on an industrial scale at the beginning of the year. It will produce at least 300 tons of renewable hydrogen per year, part of which will be distributed through Spain’s first hydrogen pipeline, built by Redexis.
Green hydrogen will have multiple applications on the island, such as supplying clean fuel for buses and delivery vans, producing heat and electricity in fuel cells for commercial and public buildings, and supplying energy in port terminals.
Local business is also participating in deploying this clean energy ecosystem through agreements such as the one reached with the Iberostar hotel group, which will use renewable hydrogen to replace part of its natural gas consumption.
Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca is the core of the Green Hysland project, coordinated by Enagás and supported by EU funding. Through the Clean Hydrogen Partnership (formerly known as the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking — FCH JU), the European Union has earmarked €10 million to support the infrastructure deployment needed to build renewable hydrogen infrastructure on the island of Mallorca.
