This development is an important step in enabling local 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 this project 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 by starting the development of a green hydrogen plant which will utilise electricity produced from local wind farms. 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. The project is already generating great interest from companies in manufacturing, battery storage and fuel where share they significant electricity needs, from tens to hundreds of megawatts.
Installed capacity once complete and operational.
Up to 82,000 tonnes of hydrogen gas produced each year.
Up to 300 jobs expected to be directly and indirectly created through the the project and positive impact to the community.
145 hectare site planned with the possibility of expansion in the future.
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 Alby a very attractive area for new industries.
