3D render of green hydrogen plant in Sweden

The development of green hydrogen in the region is an important step in enabling industry to embrace the energy transition and harness clean power, protecting the environment as well as supporting growth in the local economy. Through collaboration and innovation RES are helping create a future where green hydrogen can play a key role in the clean energy mix.

Watch the video below to find out more about one of our projects in Alby, Sweden, and to hear directly from the project team, the municipality officials and the community members about the benefits this project will bring to Ånge.

Powering a clean energy future for communities in Sweden

The Ånge Municipality is nestled in the rolling hills and forests of central Sweden, with beautiful scenery and rich in natural resources. But, over recent years it’s people have struggled from the loss of local industry, vital to maintaining a thriving population and community. The people of Ånge are passionate about working with their natural resources to create a clean energy future that will help the community thrive once more.

They have partnered with RES to help transform their municipality into a green energy hub through the development of two green hydrogen plants, one in Alby and a second in Ljungaverk, using available grid capacity.  This innovative and sustainable use of local resources in collaboration with local communities is a demonstration of the RES vision in action, creating a future where everyone has access to affordable zero carbon energy.

 

A green hub for growth

Once completed the plant will become a catalyst for industrial growth in the community and the heart of an emerging green industrial cluster. Conditions such as available land, good access to transport, locally produced green electricity in an area with low electricity prices, process water and green hydrogen, make the Ånge Municipality a very attractive area for new industries.

600 MW

Installed capacity once complete and operational.

100,000 tonnes

Up to 100,000 tonnes of hydrogen gas produced each year.

300 jobs

Up to 300 jobs expected to be directly and indirectly created through the the project and positive impact to the community.

2027

The facilities will be expanded in stages with phase one coming online in 2027 and phase two with a new electricity connection to enable a larger hydrogen plant by 2028.

The demand for green hydrogen is constantly increasing because the requirements are generally strengthened for all businesses to become more environmentally sustainable. Conditions such as available land, good access to transport, locally produced green electricity in a price area with low electricity price, process water and green hydrogen, makes the Ånge Municipality a very attractive area for new industries.
