Portugal is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050. There is a real challenge in achieving this objective and meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement, within the framework of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Gestene is committed and ready to make its contribution on the production of hydrogen, one of the alternative fuels of the future. Gestene´s hydrogen production will be entirely generated from 100% renewable energy sources and will be at the forefront of the gas/power e gas/gas solutions.
The Project for injecting green hydrogen into the natural gas network – Green Pipeline Project – is a pioneering experience in Portugal that promotes the change to green energy, developed by public and private entities, including Galp Gás Natural Distribuição and Gestene. The stored hydrogen is taken to the distribution station and injected into the network, covering 80 consumption points. The Green Pipeline Project will kick off in 2022, with the introduction of the first hydrogen molecule into the country’s natural gas network, starting with a 2 percent mix and progressively increasing to 20 percent.
