Italian energy duo Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL) and Eni SpA (BIT:ENI) confirmed today that a joint venture established by them will get public funding approved under the IPCEI Hy2Use project to decarbonise two refineries through the installation of electrolysers.
The JV, called South Italy Green Hydrogen, plans to deploy a 20-MW polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyser at the Eni biorefinery in Gela, Sicily and another one of 10 MW near Eni’s refinery in Taranto, in the Apulia region. The partners have determined that the use of green hydrogen at both sites is the most appropriate solution for their decarbonisation.
