bp sets aside up to €2bn for new green hydrogen plant in Spain


UK-based energy giant bp has launched the green hydrogen cluster of the Valencia region (HyVal) as its Castellon refinery in Spain.

Having announced the launch of the new cluster on Feb 28th, the company revealed that it aims for the initiative to be based around the phased development of up to 2GW (gigawatts) of electrolysis capacity by 2030 for producing green hydrogen at its refinery.
