With renewable hydrogen and floating offshore wind, Sicily can lead the energy transition in Italy

Catania, November 13, 2023

Sicily is the starting point to start new supply chains to support the process of decarbonisation of sectors where it is more complex to reduce emissions ("Hard to Abate"), such as heavy transport and industry, and can be one of the most competitive renewable hydrogen production areas in Europe. To do this, it is necessary to accelerate the installation of new renewable sources with a limited impact on the territory, leveraging in particular on offshore floating wind. This is what emerges from the study "Industrial opportunities from the energy transition for Sicily, Italy and Europe" carried out by the Hydrogen Community and the Floating Offshore Wind Community of The European House - Ambrosetti to analyze the economic and industrial opportunities for the Sicilian Region in the wider scenario of decarbonisation.
