Enel Green Power and Saras to develop green hydrogen in Italy


Enel Green Power and Saras have signed a memorandum of intent to develop a green hydrogen project in Sardinia.

The solution being studied involves using a 20 MW electrolyzer powered by renewable energy produced onsite to provide green hydrogen to be used as a raw material in the Saras refinery at the Sarroch industrial site in the province of Cagliari.

“The signing of this memorandum of intent, confirms the Enel Group’s commitment to promoting the development of green hydrogen in Italy and worldwide, accelerating the energy transition. We are constantly seeking partnerships to identify the best applications for this technology, particularly in industrial sectors that cannot be electrified and with emissions that are harder to reduce, including the chemical industry sector.”

Salvatore Bernabei, CEO of Enel Green Power.

“We at Saras have been focusing on the challenges of energy transition for some time now, and in recent years we have strengthened our skill base with a series of projects designed to significantly reduce the refinery’s carbon footprint. This collaboration with Enel Green Power allows us to develop with an ideal partner one of these projects; that is the production and use of green hydrogen, now considered one of the strategies with the greatest potential for the decarbonization of refining processes and the production of new generation fuels. Our Sarroch site is particularly suited, due to its size, location and structural characteristics, to develop and host a green hydrogen production project with clear potential for development and growth.”

Dario Scaffardi, CEO of Saras.
