Lhyfe and EDP sign renewable electricity contract 08 February 2024

EDPR solar project

Supplier of green hydrogen Lhyfe and EDP Renewables (EDPR) have signed a 15-year contract for the supply of renewable electricity in Germany.

Under the agreement, Lhyfe will buy renewable energy generated by a 39 MWac (55 MWp) solar project in Germany developed by EDPR through Kronos Solar EDPR, which is expected to be connected to the grid during 2025.

As part of the deal, EDPR will supply renewable electricity to Lhyfe's hydrogen generation projects. Both companies will identify opportunities for the co-development of projects to decarbonise challenging sectors where electrification is not feasible.

For Lhyfe, this agreement secures the renewable power supply for its future green hydrogen production sites in Germany. In Baden-Württemberg and Lower Saxony, Lhyfe is building two production units representing a maximum total production capacity of 8 tonnes of green and renewable hydrogen per day, which will be supplied locally for mobility and industrial processes. This agreement allows Lhyfe to further reinforce its European network of renewable electricity supplier partners.

Lhyfe founder Matthieu Guesné said: “Thanks to this agreement, we are securing in a local and long-term manner our renewable electricity supply. Almost the entire output of the EDPR photovoltaic solar plant will be used to power our green and renewable hydrogen production sites contributing to the decarbonisation of mobility and industry, which currently use fossil fuels or carbon-derived hydrogen.”
