Hydrogen is one of the main sources of renewable energy and the most abundant element in the universe. However, because it cannot be extracted directly from nature, it must be produced. It is therefore an energy vector, like electricity, and not a natural resource.
Green hydrogen is produced from the electrolysis of water, which consists of separating oxygen and hydrogen molecules by means of electricity from renewable sources, which is why it is obtained without generating CO₂ emissions and is the only truly clean hydrogen.
Can be stored
As a pressurized gas or in the form of green ammonia or methanol as well as other by-products
Easy to handle and transport
Initially, infrastructures and processes that are now used for natural gas can be utilized.
Can provide supply for regions without renewables
It is a solution for both storage and transport to other regions where there are no renewable resources.
Can be stored for long periods of time
It is a less expensive option for storing electricity from renewable energies than using batteries.
Cepsa's commitment to green hydrogen
As part of our Positive Motion strategy, we will create the 'Andalusian Green Hydrogen Valley', the largest green hydrogen project in Europe, which will accelerate the ecological transition and achieve greater security of supply and energy independence for the continent.
