    The European Commission has set a series of specific guidelines for countries to free from fossil fuels but the report addressed to Portugal ignores the government's plans in green hydrogen.

    Instead, explains Público on Monday, the recommendations of the European semester that were published on May 18 focus instead on renewable electricity.

    In the part that the document addresses to Portugal the focus is put on electricity interconnections. As for Spain, Brussels advises it to bet on gas interconnections with France, in order to "contribute to diversify the supply of gas in the internal market and to take advantage in the long term of the potential of renewable hydrogen.

    Green hydrogen was, according to German Chancellor Olaf Schlolz, one of the main topics on the table in last week's meetings with Prime Minister António Costa.

    On Tuesday, the Portuguese prime minister said as he left an extraordinary summit in Brussels that European Union leaders recognized the "potential of the Iberian Peninsula for energy security."

    "This time there is an express reference as to the potential that the Iberian Peninsula as a whole has to contribute to European energy security," the prime minister said.
