In Spain, the Minister of Economy, Industry and Employment of the Government of Aragon (in north-eastern Spain) and the CEO of Enagás have signed an agreement for the development of renewable gases such as hydrogen and biomethane (RNG). The agreement is part of the Government of Aragon’s objective of promoting energy saving and efficiency and the use of renewable energies.
The government also included in the agreement the promotion of a coherent and efficient development of energy infrastructures. In this sense, the regional government, through the Hydrogen Aragon Foundation, maintains its commitment to the development of hydrogen technologies and fuel cells, in particular, as a vector to store and manage the energy coming, especially from sources renewable, and link that production with the energy needs of transport and electric mobility.
The collaboration of the Government of Aragon, through the Hydrogen Aragon Foundation, and Enagás will allow promoting projects, research, development and innovation in areas such as sustainable mobility or the production of renewable hydrogen.
Enagás, a member of NGVA Europe and international developer and operator of gas infrastructure, is currently promoting various projects to develop non-electric renewable energies, such as hydrogen, biogas and biomethane, as new solutions in the energy transition process and in the promotion of a circular economy. In addition, it works on initiatives for the use of natural gas in transport, mainly maritime and heavy, in order to improve air quality by generating lower emissions.
