The Spanish ministry for ecological transition on Wednesday invited public and stakeholder opinion on the government’s Energy Storage Strategy and the Renewable Hydrogen Roadmap, two pieces of regulation needed so that Spain can reach the targets set out in the 2021-2030 national energy and climate plan (NECP).
Spain’s NECP addresses the opportunity to use surplus electricity with complex storage systems, as well as renewable hydrogen in high-temperature industrial processes and transport, the ministry said. But to develop and make use of these technologies, a proper strategy is needed.
Before drafting these documents, the ministry has asked stakeholders to comment on the role of storage in the electricity sector, possible incentives to promote its deployment, how to engage citizens and sectors in the implementation of the storage strategy, among others.
The consultation for the Renewable Hydrogen Roadmap will seek to identify sectors in which the use of hydrogen can contribute the most to the decarbonisation of the Spanish economy, possible barriers that prevent its deployment, as well as what factors should be considered from the socio-economic and environmental point of view.
Public consultation will be open for 15 days, but it will begin only after the state of emergency imposed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic is lifted, the ministry added.
