EDPR and Lhyfe ink landmark PPA for green hydrogen in Germany

Hydrogen

Germany – EDP Renewables (EDPR) has inked a historic Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Lhyfe, facilitated through Kronos Solar EDPR, for renewable energy supply in Germany.

The PPA signifies a crucial step in EDPR’s commitment to accelerating the penetration of renewable energy in Europe. For Lhyfe, this PPA is a pivotal move as it secures a robust renewable electricity supply for its upcoming green hydrogen production sites in Baden-Württemberg and Lower Saxony. Lhyfe is constructing two production units with a combined maximum capacity of 8 tons of green and renewable hydrogen per day. This hydrogen will play a vital role in decarbonizing mobility and industrial processes, replacing traditional fossil fuels or carbon-derived hydrogen.

Energy output

Over the next 15 years, Kronos Solar EDPR will supply Lhyfe with renewable energy from a 55 MWp (39 MWac) solar project in Meuselwitz, northeastern Germany. Expected to be connected to the grid by 2025, the photovoltaic solar plant aims to produce 58 GWh of clean energy annually. This energy output is equivalent to powering approximately 18,000 households in the region, contributing significantly to local sustainability.

This PPA is not just a contractual agreement; it solidifies a strategic relationship between EDPR and Lhyfe. The companies are jointly exploring opportunities for co-developing projects aimed at decarbonizing sectors where electrification poses challenges. The collaboration extends beyond mere supply agreements, positioning both entities as key players in shaping the hydrogen landscape.
