DEPA signs Memorandum of Cooperation with Western Macedonia to develop green hydrogen infrastructure

Greece’s natural gas supply company DEPA signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the regional authority of Western Macedonia for the development of a green hydrogen infrastructure.

This cooperation is part of the bigger project called White Dragon which provides for investments of 2.5 billion euros in hydrogen production by using solar energy from photovoltaic parks to be installed in Western Macedonia in the context of decarbonisation.

The region of Western Macedonia has recognised that the transition to clean energy will be the main aspect of the energy industry in all States for many years to come. Moreover, with the adoption of the EU Green Deal last December, Western Macedonia aims to become the first green region in Greece and one of the greenest in Europe, exploiting its pool of talent and highly specialised people.

“The region of Western Macedonia has been the energy centre of the country for many decades and the local community was and remains inextricably linked to this sector,” said the regional Governor George Kasapidis after signing the Memorandum. “Therefore, we want to maintain this energy identity and play a leading role in energy developments in the coming decades.”

According to the CEO of DEPA Commerce Konstantinos Xifaras, the company is already working today for the clean energy of tomorrow not only entering the renewable energy market but also focusing on reliable alternative sources, such as hydrogen.
