Fusion Fuel signs green hydrogen offtake agreement with Dourogás

January 30, 2023 |

In Portugal, Fusion Fuel has signed an offtake agreement with Portuguese natural gas utility Dourogás for green hydrogen produced from Fusion Fuel’s projects in Portugal. This represents Fusion Fuel’s first offtake contract aimed at blending green hydrogen within the Portuguese natural gas grid, and a first-of-its-kind agreement to support the Portuguese government in meeting its decarbonization objectives. Portugal’s national hydrogen strategy, adopted in 2020, laid out high-impact targets including a 15% blend of hydrogen in its natural gas distribution network and 2 GW of electrolyzer capacity by 2030.

The first hydrogen to be blended will be produced at Fusion Fuel’s GreenGas project in Evora. The facility is expected to be commissioned in 2023 and would produce roughly 40 tonnes of green hydrogen per annum. Dourogás will be able to use this hydrogen in its domestic, industrial and mobility NGV segments, sectors where the Dourogás Group is the market leader. Portugal’s largest gas distribution network, Galp Gás Natural Distribuição – recently renamed Floene – is expected to build the infrastructure to enable blending in the grid as part of its broader commitment to the energy transition.
