Green hydrogen to be produced at wind and solar complex in Brazil

Posted on

Rio Grande do Norte state government has held talks with two European investors interested in adding green hydrogen production to a project for a 1,043.5-MW wind and solar hybrid complex in the northeastern state.

The hybrid complex is being developed by local company Maturati. It will feature a 231-MW wind park and an 812.5-MW solar plant. The investors are looking to add green hydrogen production to cater to demand in the domestic and international markets.

Rio Grande do Norte’s governor Fatima Bezerra signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Enerfin do Brasil, the Brazil-based renewables subsidiary of Spanish infrastructure builder Elecnor SA, to collaborate on a green hydrogen pilot project. On the same day, Bezerra also presented the state’s green hydrogen programme to EDP Renovaveis SA.
