“We have huge renewable energy pipelines in these countries where there is also a promising market for hydrogen,” said Antonio Cammisecra, head of Global Power Generation at Italy’s Enel, in an interview with Reuters.

At its solar and wind farms, Enel, which owns Spain’s Endesa, will be installing electrolyzers, which use electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, to produce hydrogen to be used for energy storage or sold to industrial clients to help them decarbonize their processes.
