Companies in the energy sector and research centres are joining their efforts to promote the generation, injection and future transportation and storage of hydrogen through the existing gas network in Spain. The initiative, coordinated by Enagás, has three different lines of work covering the whole hydrogen value chain.
A consortium made up of 8 companies (AMES, Estamp, Enagás, Exolum, H2Greem, H2Site, Nano4Energy and ROVALMA) and 6 research centres (CEIT, the Spanish National Hydrogen Centre [CNH2], CSIC, ITECAM, Tekniker and Rovira i Virgili University [URV]) have come together under the GreenH2Pipes project to promote the research and technological development required to boost hydrogen production, its transportation through the gas network and its storage through liquid organic carriers.
The main role of Nano4Energy is the development and research on novel, electrically conductive, and corrosion resistant coatings to act as protective barrier both for bipolar plates and the innovative stainless steel current collectors that will be developed.
The project received public financial support from the Missions Science and Innovation 2021 initiative of the Spanish Centre for Industrial and Technological Development (CDTI) in December 2021.
