Paris, (EFE).- The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, announced this Sunday that Germany will join the “H2Med” energy interconnection project, the first hydroduct that will connect the Iberian Peninsula with the rest of Europe and that will be operational in 2030.
“We have decided to extend ‘H2Med’, which thanks to European funds unites Portugal, Spain and France, to Germany, which will be a partner in the infrastructure of this project,” Macron said at the culmination of the Franco-German Summit that sought shelve the tensions between Paris and Berlin in 2022.
Macron has indicated that there is “a will” to promote green hydrogen at a European level.
The French president recalled that this project is more viable than the MidCat, the plan that Spain and Portugal originally defended for the transport of gas.
“The MidCat was not the good strategy, which was to transport gas and that it crossed the Pyrenees, now it is the good strategy, which passes through the Mediterranean,” he considered.
Scholz, who at the time supported the MidCat and tried to “convince” Macron to complete it, has today considered that the hydroduct “is a good project for the future” and has also valued its “good European anchorage”, for bringing together its partners Spanish and Portuguese, as well as French.
Previous agreement between Spain, France and Portugal
France, Spain and Portugal agreed at the Euro-Mediterranean summit in Alicante, on December 9, to build this underwater hydroduct between Barcelona and Marseille.
This agreement will allow the transport of green hydrogen throughout Europe in a context of searching for alternatives to polluting energy sources, in moments of crisis due to the war in Ukraine.
The project includes two cross-border infrastructures, one between Celorico daBeira (Portugal) and Zamora, and another submarine, between Barcelona and Marseille, as well as two trunk axes.
Financed by European funds
The macroproject, which will be financed up to 50% by European funds, will make it possible to bring hydrogen obtained from renewable energies to the EU.
In a statement, the Spanish Government also confirmed this Sunday that Germany will join the project and recalled that “H2Med will be in operation in 2030 and it is expected to be capable of transporting 2 million tons of green hydrogen per year from Spain, which which will represent 10% of the total consumed by the EU”.
“In 2050 it is estimated that 20% of all energy in Europe will be renewable hydrogen”, has indicated the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge of Spain.
