Portugal has developed a 7 billion EUR National Hydrogen Strategy, aiming at increasing the share of hydrigen in the final energy consumption to 5% by 2030.
The strategy also aims at reducing natural gas imports budget by 380 to 740 million EUR and to create 8500 to 12000 new jobs.
Specific targets include: the gradual increase of hydrogen consumption in the road transport sector up to 20% by 2050, reaching up to 100 HRS in the country by 2030, and the installation of 2 GW electrolysers by 2030 and 5 GW by 2050.
An industrial hub will be developed in Sines, with 1GW electrolysers based on sea water and clean water, including synergies of nearby water port, sun and land availability. New gas infrastructure will also be built.
