White Summit Capital’s HyFive secures €28.7 million EU support

Spanish green hydrogen platorm HyFive, a subsidiary of energy transition infrastructure investor, White Summit Capital (WSC), has secured €28.7 million in financial support for two green hydrogen projects in Spain and a mobility-related hydrogen plant in Germany.

The subsidies are linked to 75 MW in operational capacity, comprising about 40% of the 190 MW HyFive expects to operate by the end of 2026.

The largest of the projects that received EU funding through the NextGenerationEU programme is a 50 MW green hydrogen production facility that will feed into a planned 100 000 t e-methanol plant in the North of Spain. The plan is to double this plant’s capacity during a second phase.

The other two projects include a 20 MW electrolyser that aims to displace grey hydrogen consumption in a petrochemical complex in the south of Spain and a 5 MW integrated electrolyser and hydrogen distribution facility, predominantly serving the mobility sector in Lindenberg im Allgäu, southern Germany.

“In 2023, the EU endorsed regulatory guidelines on issues such as the types of hydrogen deemed as green, or binding consumption quotas for so-called renewable fuels of non-biogenic origin. It is urgent to embed these into national laws and regulations to speed up adoption of green hydrogen and eFuels,” said Alberto Sánchez de Rojas, CEO at HyFive. “Only then will we be able to maximise the potential of renewable energy production.”

"Renewable gases will play a key role in the decarbonisation of heavy and energy intensive industries and are part of the solution for areas such as heavy transport and shipping. We are keen to support HyFive in making these projects a reality," said Pablo Pallás, Managing Partner at WSC.

HyFive’s pipeline of projects is primarily geared towards areas where enforced regulation applies and where the EU seeks to accelerate decarbonisation. These include eFuels, heavy duty transportation and certain energy intensive industrial applications such as cement, steel, and ceramics. Launched in 2021 and fully owned by WSC, HyFive is a vertically integrated green hydrogen and derivatives producer. The company is developing a pan-European portfolio of projects with plans to reach 1.5 GW in operational capacity by 2035.
