Enel Brasil and the Government of Ceará sign a Letter of Intent to enable the development of green hydrogen projects in the State

Enel Brasil and the Government of the State of Ceará signed a memorandum of understanding to carry out technical, commercial, legal and financial feasibility studies for the future development of green hydrogen production projects in the State by Enel Green Power Brasil, an renewable generation of the Enel Group in the country. The partnership will last for at least five years, and may be extended, and aims to join efforts to analyze the assumptions that influence the feasibility of green hydrogen production projects, fostering the future development of the entire production chain in the region.

“We are very happy to be part of this pioneering initiative by the State of Ceará to create a Green Hydrogen Hub. Enel believes in green hydrogen to accelerate decarbonization, acting as a complementary tool in supporting important sectors of the economy that seek ways to make their cleaner production processes and activities, such as the chemical and steel industry, for example”, explains the Responsible for Business Development at Enel Green Power in Brazil, Jean Philippe Bellavia.

“Ceará has strong potential for wind and solar generation and we have studies in progress for the future development of projects. We want to do the same with green hydrogen, working together with our partners and technology suppliers, following our purpose of open innovation, whose collaborative environment can help us find competitive solutions faster”.

Enel Green Power will dedicate itself in the short term to studies for the development of a green hydrogen production plant in the State of Ceará, with a water electrolysis process using 100% renewable energy. Based on the results of the feasibility studies stage, the company will define, based on technical criteria and its business strategy, potential projects, their investments and deadlines for execution.
