‘Green’ Hydrogen powered in Israel gains global momentum. And it started in a Kibbutz

H2Pro (Ceasarea/Israel) and Doral Energy (Ramat Gan/Israel) announce the signing of a strategic purchase agreement. Doral, as a global renewable energy developer, with 15 GW of renewable assets under development, is planning to execute a large green hydrogen project pipeline worldwide.

To support this plan, Doral secured access to 200 MW of H2Pro’s E-TAC systems for its projects in Europe, the United States and Israel and will purchase minimum quantities subject to E-TAC system performance.

Doral Energy is a global player in renewable energy. Doral’s flagship project in the US is Mammoth Solar, one of the largest solar projects in the United States.  The project spreads over 13,000 acres in northwest Indiana and will generate 1.6 GW (DC), enough energy to power 275,000 households annually.

Founded in 2019 and based in Caesarea, Israel, H2Pro develops E-TAC – a revolutionary method for producing green hydrogen by splitting water that is over 95% efficient, safe and cost-competitive with fossil-fuel hydrogen. H2Pro is backed by leading investors and strategic partners, such as Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Temasek, Horizons Ventures, ArcelorMittal, Yara Growth Ventures, Hyundai, Sumitomo Corporation, Bazan and New Fortress Energy. E-TAC is based on years of research conducted by its founding team at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.

Doral is in the forefront of global, tech-driven renewable energy development, that goes far beyond green electrons. As part of our “Green Energy” strategy, we are tapping into the green molecules’ world with various applications such as producing green and clean hydrogen to support the decarbonization efforts of our corporate partners. The collaboration with H2Pro will not only diversify and secure our supply chains but also demonstrate best-in-class green hydrogen production in competitive pricing.“, Yaki Noyman, CEO of Doral.

Beyond investing in H2Pro via Doral Energy-Tech Ventures, Doral’s Corporate VC, the first step of the partnership is already taken as H2Pro and Doral launched the project of a pilot system of 0.4 MW scheduled for 2023 in Kibbutz Yotvata, Israel. The project is supported by the Israeli Ministry of Energy.

Green Hydrogen will be produced by H2Pro’s E-TAC technology. Doral develops a photovoltaic plant which will produce electricity for the project. The hydrogen will be blended with natural gas for use in the nearby Yotvata dairy factory.

Alongside its partners, Doral is also leading the efforts to develop a subsequent project extension into a 30 MW Hydrogen hub based on H2Pro‘s technology. After these first projects, H2Pro will continue supplying E-TAC electrolyzers according to the agreement until 2030.

Without a doubt, this technology and new partnership will provide an alternative to solving the global energy crisis, besides nuclear power.
