Government outlines green hydrogen programme

Portafolio (SABI English Language Abstracts)  


    The Colombian government programme for the hydrogen sector seeks to promote investments of $2.5 billion USD until 2030 and bolster up installation of water electrolysis plants with capacity in-between 1 to 3 GW of green hydrogen, in addition to 50 kilotonnes of blue hydrogen. These advances would allow to reduce CO2 emissions by some 2.5 to 3 million tonnes per annum in the next decade, as part of the ultimate goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 . The green hydrogen plants will be strategically built up in regions boasting plenty renewable energy resources, but not far from large consumption centres in order to downsize cost of transport and its related-emissions. Colombia seeks to achieve production cost of roughly $1.70 USD/kilo of sustainable hydrogen fuel that will have an important role in the country's energy transition. Green hydrogen will actively participate in the manufacturing sector, notably in refining complexes, chemical plants and fertiliser units, allowing annual reduction of CO2 emissions around 40%. Plans in the blue hydrogen sector consists in the expansion of existing SMR (steam methane reforming) plants and building up new ones, in attempt to use its resulting production in the collective transport system with a fleet of 1,500 to 2,000 vehicles and in the cargo services with 1,000 to 1,500 heavy-duty vehicles adapted to run on that source.
