Ireland – EI-H2 plans to build the country’s first green hydrogen facility in Co Cork, Ireland.
EI-H2 will apply for planning permission for a 50MW electrolysis facility which will eliminate 63,000 tonnes of carbon emissions once operational. According to EI-H2, owned by Pearse Flynn, the Cork plant is expected to be operating by the end of 2023. When completed, the site will be one of the world’s largest green energy plants of its kind.
The cost of construction and grid connection is projected to be around €120 million. The facility will be geared to assist business clients that are attempting to reduce their carbon footprint and will increasingly require environmentally sound and sustainable energy alternatives.
The Aghada plant will attempt to supply the commercial sector with more than 20 tonnes of green, safe hydrogen per day. The plant’s green hydrogen may be safely added to current natural gas sources, assisting high-volume energy producers in lowering their carbon footprint.
