Case study details

In January 2004, the largest Italian utility joined the Hydrogen Park Consortium (HPC) to develop a power-generation system based on hydrogen fuel, and to demonstrate its use in a high-density residential and industrial area. This was the world’s largest experimental park for the creation of a full-scale hydrogen‑based economy. HPC was way ahead of the hydrogen curve, and we’re proud to say we were there to help.

The H2-IGCC project was co-funded by the European Union’s 7th Framework Program for Research and Development based on the initiative outlined by the European Turbine Network (ETN) in 2007.
