The European Commission has approved €158m state aid to support the LOTOS Green H2 project in Poland.
The aid will support the installation of an electrolyser with a capacity of 100MW, as well as the construction of 50MW photovoltaic power plant and 20MWh battery storage.
The electrolyser is expected to start operating as of 2027 and to gradually increase its production up to 13,600 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year. Once completed, the project is expected to avoid the release of a total of 2.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide over the project lifetime.
In addition, to maximise the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, hydrogen will be produced solely with electricity generated from renewable sources.
