Green Hysland

Welcome to GREEN HYSLAND’s website!

We are currently busy building this website. In the meantime, here is already a few information about our project.

What is GREEN HYSLAND about?

GREEN HYSLAND aims to deploy a fully-functioning Hydrogen (H2) ecosystem in the island of Mallorca, Spain, turning the island into Europe’s first H2 hub in Southern Europe. This will be achieved by producing and delivering green hydrogen from solar energy for the island’s tourism, transport, industry and energy sectors, including gas grid injection for green heat and power local end-use.

The project will also deliver a roadmap towards 2050 that compiles a long-term vision for the development of a widespread H2 economy in Mallorca and the Balearic Region, in line with the environmental objectives set for 2050. Indeed, hydrogen will contribute to increasing the penetration of renewable energy sources in the Balearic energy system, demonstrating sector coupling and sectorial integration, and moving towards full decarbonisation of the economy.

Finally, the GREEN HYSLAND demonstrations will provide Europe with a blueprint for decarbonization of island economies, and an operational example of the contribution of H2 towards the energy transition and the 2050 net zero targets. The development of replication experiences and business models are foreseen in five other EU islands (Madeira - PT, Tenerife - ES, Aran - IE, Greek Islands and Ameland – NL) and beyond (Chile and Morocco).

Where does the project take place?

GREEN HYSLAND’s demonstration activities will take place on the Balearic Island of Mallorca, Spain. The following FCH end-user applications will be delivered:

  • Site 1: Supply of green PV-based H2 in Lloseta (at least 300 tons per year).
  • Site 2: FC-based CHP system at municipal building in Lloseta to supply heat & power for a commercial application.
  • Site 3: Injection of H2 into the local gas distribution grid in Cas Tresorer. Initially the objective is admixing of 2% (v) H2 initially into the local distribution natural gas grid, expected to increase to at least 4%(v) over the course of the project timeframe.
  • Site 4: Commercial FC-based CHP system at least one hotel in the municipality of Palma
  • Site 5: Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HRS) at EMT bus depot in Palma to a fleet of 5 FC-powered buses and 10 FC-powered passenger cars/vans for to be leased/rented.
  • Site 6: Electricity supply for critical infrastructure at the port of Palma - deployment of a FCH primary power system for a ferry terminal.

The deployment of enabling infrastructure (H2 pipeline and distribution of H2 via trailers), will allow interconnection of supply and demand, and integrated operation of all 6 deployment sites.

The scalability and EU replicability of this integrated H2 ecosystem will be showcased via a long-term roadmap towards 2050, together with full replication studies.

Who is behind GREEN HYSLAND?

To meet the project goals, a balanced and multi-disciplinary consortium has been configured, covering the whole value chain in the project and coming from industry (large and small), public bodies, research and academia and community organizations.

How is GREEN HYSLAND funded?

GREEN HYSLAND will be a 5 five-year project with a total initial investment of approximately 50 million euros. Financial contributions come from the European Commission through the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and partners’ own resources. In addition, the project has been declared to be a Strategic Project by the Balearic Regional Government, and has support from the National Government through IDAE (The Spanish Institute for Diversification and Saving of Energy).

Stay tuned!

We are working hard to have this project website ready as soon as possible.
