The Italian government has included hydrogen theme among the incentives of the PNRR, the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, approved in 2021 to revive the economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.
In particular, the government has allocated almost 4 billion euros for the development of the national hydrogensupply chain.
In fact, the energy transitionpath towards decarbonisation requires Italy to install at least 5 GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030.
Specifically, electrolysisis the process of breaking down water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen using electricity.
This process is carried out by an equipment called an electrolyser.
As the costs of this technology are still very high, government incentives are an essential tool to quickly start the emergence of a hydrogen supply chain.
Let us look in detail at the decree implementing Investment 5.2 on ‘Competitiveness and resilience of production chains’ of the NRP.
The Decree for green hydrogen development projects
Italy’s minister of Ecological Transition, Roberto Cingolani, recently signed the hydrogen dedicated decree implementing the investment measure 5.2 of PNRR.
The regulation makes 450 million eurosavailable to finance projects aimed at developing the green hydrogen supply chain.
In addition, the MiTE (Ministry of Ecological Transition) Decree distributes the PNRR resources among the different project lines identified for the construction of electrolyser production plants.
The objective of Investment 5.2 is to create, by June 2026, an Italian supply chain with plants producing electrolysers and associated components, with a total annual capacity of at least 1 gigawatt.
Achieving this annual output will make it possible to meet the demand for green hydrogen.
This is a long and complex path, which requires suitable technologies and specific expertise.
