1st injection of Green Hydrogen in Portugal鈥檚 natural gas network - Portugal Business News

The 1st injection of Green Hydrogen in Portugal鈥檚 natural gas network was done on the 7th during a ceremony with Prime Minister Ant贸nio Costa. The hydrogen was injected by Floene, that has nine regional operators for gas distribution in Portugal.


Portugal鈥檚 Prime Minister announced that the country has a clear strategy for developing Green Hydrogen as this will not only lead to energy freedom but will also allow the country to become an exporter of renewable gas. He added that Portugal has a modern infrastructure with a well-developed distribution infrastructure for natural gas.


Portugal鈥檚 Prime Minister stated that no country can be dependent on a single energy supplier or even on external suppliers for its own energy consumption. For Portugal, energy independence equals freedom.


Moreover, each time 5% of hydrogen is injected into the network, it equals to 5% less natural gas imports. Energy prices in Portugal are not as high as they might have been since the country produces renewable energy and this is further protection for both consumers and industrial production.
