It was the fourteenth edition of the Cinco Días Awards organized by the Spanish newspaper of the same name, which has become a key event for the business sector.
The 2021 Cinco Días Award for the most innovative business project in the field of new technologies goes to the renewable hydrogen initiative Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca, led by Green Hysland coortinator Enagás and project partner Acciona, and in which Cemex and IDAE also participate. The jury highlighted “the great impact it has on the Balearic Islands” by representing “a comprehensive transformation to decarbonize”. In addition, they emphasized that it is “a project in which several companies have joined, which adds complexity and endows it with a collective ambition that is an example of efficiency in working together”.
Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca involves the construction of an electrolysis plant, the development of two photovoltaic plants to power (which started last summer), and a Green Hydrogen service station on the island. The solar plants, located in the municipalities of Lloseta and Petra, will have a capacity of 6.9 and 6.5 MW respectively. They will produce enough renewable energy for the green hydrogen plant, which will generate and distribute more than 300 tonnes of H2 per year.
