Hera and Snam have been awarded €19.5m ($21.3m) by the Regional Council of Emilia Romagna to develop a green hydrogen production hub in the Italian municipality of Modena.
Awarded through the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP), the funding will aid the development of a 6MW solar farm, connected to an electrolyser to produce up to 400 tonnes to hydrogen per year.
