Renews: ESB and Shannon Airport Announce Green Hydrogen Project

renews logo

ESB and Shannon Airport Group have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore the development of a hydrogen project in vicinity of the airport on Ireland’s west coast.

The project aims to explore the development of a sustainable green hydrogen plant at Shannon to demonstrate the use of hydrogen in aviation, heavy goods transport and industry, and as a “lighthouse model” for the net zero integrated energy system of the future.

The project will also demonstrate the potential of the resource in the Shannon Estuary as part of ESB’s Green Atlantic @ Moneypoint project.

Part of that plan is to develop a green hydrogen production, storage and generation facility at the County Clare site towards the end of the decade.
