AlwaysFree: Italian Consortium to Develop Puglia Green Hydrogen Project


A consortium consisted of Italian companies Edison S.p.A., Snam S.p.A., Saipem S.p.A., and Alboran Hydrogen will develop the Puglia Green Hydrogen Valley project, one of Italy’s first large-scale initiatives for the production and transport of green hydrogen.

The project aims to push the proportion of green hydrogen within Italy’s energy mix to ensure national and European climate neutrality targets are met by 2050. It will build three green hydrogen production plants in Brindisi, Taranto, and Cerignola (Foggia) for a combined capacity of 220 MW and powered by a photovoltaic production of 380 MW in total.

The plants are estimated to be able to produce about 300 million cmpa of renewable hydrogen. It will involve important regional players, including the Acquedotto Pugliese water supply company, the Appulo Lucane Railways, Puglia’s technological and production districts, the Polytechnic of Bari, the Universities of Bari, Foggia, and Salento. 

The project will have investments in research and development to promote the creation and development of competencies and a production chain dedicated to the hydrogen industry in Puglia.

The consortium will establish a special purpose company with Alboran handling 30% of it, Edison 30%, Snam 30%, and Saipem 10%. This development will be discussed further by the parties.
