The SHYNE (Spanish Hydrogen Network) consortium has launched to promote the use of renewable hydrogen in an effort to decarbonise the Spanish economy. The project will advance the use of hydrogen throughout the country’s transportation operations by prioritising the production of synthetic fuels and hydrogen filling stations.
The SHYNE project is the largest renewable hydrogen consortium in Spain, bringing together 22 companies and 11 associations, technology centres, and universities under the leadership of Repsol.
SHYNE aspires to unite leading companies who aim to decarbonise their sectors. In addition to Respol, the project has six promoting partners: Alsa, Bosch, Celsa, Enagas, Scania, and Talgo.
“This agreement is further proof of Scania's commitment to drive change towards sustainable transport from different technological fronts. Scania sees green hydrogen as an important player in medium- to long-term electrification. At Scania, we are convinced of the importance of working in strong partnerships and with other companies in order to slow down climate change.”
3.23 billion EUR has been invested in SHYNE projects to implement the production, distribution, and use of renewable hydrogen. SHYNE will also promote the development of pioneering technologies, such as photoelectrocatalysis or solid oxide electrolysis, to further accelerate the deployment plans for this gas. To achieve this goal, two new innovation hubs will open in Castile-La Mancha and Madrid.
It is hoped that Spain will reach an installed capacity of 500 MW in 2025 and 2 GW in 2030, which is half the targeted figure set in the Spanish Government’s Hydrogen Roadmap.
“For Alsa, it is a great satisfaction to be a promoting partner of the SHYNE project led by Repsol, as we firmly believe in the development and promotion of hydrogen as a key technology in the sustainable mobility of the future. Within this process of transition towards zero emission fleets that Alsa wants to lead, this month we plan to incorporate the first hydrogen-powered bus to one of our operations in a stable and permanent way.”
