Green Hydrogen Round Table of the Province of Río Negro

The "Mesa de Hidrógeno Verde Rionegrina", created by Provincial Decree No. 342/21, is a transversal and interdisciplinary body, in charge of agreeing and defining active and sustained public policies on science, innovation, research and development of green hydrogen, as well as productive investment projects based on this type of green energy resources in the Province of Río Negro.

The Bureau will act as a consultative governing body, as a short, medium and long term proposal to institutionalize the development of applied science, innovation, research and application of green hydrogen as a new energy vector, as well as productive investment projects based on this type of green energy resources, which in turn will ensure the periodic review of the proposed objectives.

OBJECTIVES AND GOALS: 4 FUNDAMENTAL PILLARS:

ENERGY SECURITY

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

EFFICIENCY AND COMPETITION

SOCIAL INCLUSION AND EMPLOYMENT

ENERGY SECURITY

It refers mainly to the need to build an energy system with optimal characteristics of availability, reliability, flexibility, diversifying energy sources for the production of green hydrogen.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

It implies incorporating the environmental dimension in the decision-making processes, both at the level of the formulation and implementation of energy policies and in the development of projects for the use of land, water, energy and infrastructure resources, in order to prevent possible environmental impacts and contribute to a dynamic and sustainable development.

EFFICIENCY AND COMPETITION

Understanding that this development requires specific programs and standards that are permanently updated according to the progress in technological innovation and following the best international standards.

SOCIAL INCLUSION AND EMPLOYMENT

The Board will ensure the development of a technology that contributes to improve the quality of life of the population, not only ensuring universal and equitable access to modern quality energy services, but also facilitating the generation of employment and expansion of industrialization and installed capacity.

FUNCTIONS

  • To define the general guidelines for the integral and transversal approach of public policies associated with science, technology, innovation and development in the field of green hydrogen;
  • Encourage, design and execute public policies that promote the generation of projects linked to productive, scientific and technical development in the field of energy transition and, especially, based on green hydrogen.
  • Promote participatory scenarios that involve civil society and associated management in the development of initiatives and projects related to scientific development in energy, green hydrogen and its productive application;
  • Identify renewable energy projects by expanding the existing database;
  • Provide institutional support for the dissemination of projects at the national and provincial levels;
  • To update the information bases on the different technologies applied for the production of green hydrogen;
  • Coordinate national and international cooperation actions to ensure an adequate application of resources in terms of subject matter, quality and timeliness;
  • Identify barriers that prevent the sustainable development of renewable energy sources and associated technologies, and propose measures to promote them;
  • Promote and strengthen inter and intra-agency actions to ensure compliance with current regulations; identifying and proposing modifications to existing regulations and devices according to the needs detected;
  • To understand that green hydrogen, hand in hand with the energy transition, comes as a natural consequence of new supply and demand paradigms at a global level, promoting the study and industrialization of sustainable energy vectors.
  • To position the Province of Río Negro as a leader in the social, educational, scientific and commercial responsibility of green hydrogen.
