German development agency GIZ is offering to provide technical support to Chilean companies developing green hydrogen projects based on water electrolysis using renewable power.
The main objective of the initiative is to accelerate the development of green hydrogen schemes in Chile through specialised evaluations or advisory services to reduce the technological and knowledge gaps in projects so that their development and execution can continue, GIZ’s local office said Tuesday.
The technical support services will be available to companies and developers of public or private projects that intend to use or produce green hydrogen as energy, either as input or as an alternative to fossil fuels.
The support will consist of carrying out pre-feasibility or feasibility studies, expert reviews of the project in any of its phases or specialised consultancy as proposed by the developer or project owner.
Interested parties can submit their applications by September 7, 2020.
The development agency’s latest initiative is part of the larger project titled “Decarbonisation of the Chilean energy sector”, commissioned and financed by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and implemented by GIZ and the Chilean Energy Ministry.
