Working together for a
sustainable industry in Portugal
The starting point for the decarbonization of Portugal, at scale
The Nazaré Green Hydrogen Valley aims to produce low carbon goods.
In order to decarbonize, first intention is to electrify processes whenever possible.
When electrification is not possible, green hydrogen is a compelling complementary option, typically as a feed, and for high-grade heat.
Green Hydrogen Supply Chain
Green hydrogen is produced from renewable energy
A renewable energy facility supplies the electrolyser with renewable electricity ideally via direct power line connection.
Green hydrogen is produced with water
The electrolysis station produces green hydrogen using renewable electricity and water, ideally coming from waste water treatment.
Green Hydrogen is delivered reliably
Direct Hydrogen Purchase Agreement
Direct delivery of hydrogen through dedicated pipeline network
Indirect Hydrogen Purchase Agreement
Injection of Renewable Gas into the natural gas grid and purchase agreement based on Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin

Bringing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions down.

Industries from Nazaré, Marinha Grande and Leiria, gathering a large portion of Portuguese emissions, are getting together to decarbonize their industrial processes and develop new, competitive, low carbon products, while making a seizable impact.

To accelerate decarbonization, we are developing a replication in Coimbra.

For industrial applications that cannot be electrified – typically heat requirement, feed – green hydrogen provides compelling, scalable and competitive solutions.

Hydrogen comes in where electrification doesn’t work. It is the second best option in decarbonization.

What do we do?

Regional collaboration is strongly needed in order to maximise the scale effect, the local social positive externalities, and the visibility of the project.

Therefore, industries around Marinha Grande gather to use green hydrogen, the best decarbonization route when electrification is not an option.

Nazaré Green Hydrogen Valley
A strong momentum
The consortium has been set up and is actively developing its business case. The project has been selected as part of the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance.
