Rolls-Royce technology on display at Enex
For the first time in Poland. On the first ENEX day, the British Rolls-Royce SMR presented the technology for small power plants for hydrogen generation; these can power cities or industry. The technology is to enable the implementation of zero-emission energy goals of the Central Hydrogen Cluster, established by the Świętokrzyskie Industria Group consisting of 50 entities - institutions, local governments and companies. The signatories of the declaration strive to create by 2030 zero-emission energy sources capable of generating 4 TWh of energy a year and hydrogen electrolysers with a capacity of 250 MW. The resources pool is to translate into 50,000 tons of clean hydrogen to power heavy-duty equipment, trucks and public transport in cities. The expected reduction level is 400,000 tons of CO2 per year. The first day of the jubilee power-industry meeting, Targi Kielce also enrolled into the Cluster.
