The Puglia Hydrogen Valley project refers to the construction of three green hydrogen production plants in Brindisi, Taranto and Cerignola (FG) and involves, alongside Edison and Saipem, some important local players in Puglia, including Acquedotto Pugliese (water), Ferrovie Apulo Lucane (railway), Apulian technology and production districts, Bari Politecnico and Bari, Foggia and Salento Universities.
Puglia Hydrogen Valley is the first project to develop green hydrogen in Italy and will make it possible to maximize synergy with surrounding areas and favour the development of the know-how needed to create a local supply chain. The project also applied for EU funding (Ipcei - Important Projects of Common European Interest).
Green hydrogen is a key technology for Edison and Italy, development plan. The green hydrogen production plant to be built in Brindisi will employ electrolysers with a capacity of 60 Mw fed by a dedicated photovoltaic park.
Our participation in the project is geared to achieving ambitious objectives in line with European decarbonisation goals, moving towards a carbon-free future.

According to the Hydrogen Roadmap Europe Report, representing 17 European industries and organizations, green hydrogen could account for as much as 24% of total end-user demand by 2050.
