IZHARIA, BRINGING KNOWLEDGE TO THE ENTIRE HYDROGEN AND RENEWABLES VALUE CHAIN

IZHARIA is a Spanish company committed to the energy sector at both national and international level. From its earliest days, it has focused on the execution and activation of projects involving power generation, transmission and distribution and renewable energy, from concept to commissioning. After ten years as a partner of reference for the leading energy companies, IZHARIA has embarked on a new venture, undertaking new challenges in new strategic areas that highlight its firm commitment to digitalisation and the plans to decarbonise the sector.

IZHARIA and hydrogen

Technological development, along with the implementation of national and European sustainability plans, has brought about an unprecedented deployment of renewables, whose evolution has made them a disruptive energy source. One energy vector to have emerged in recent years as an essential pillar of energy transition policies is hydrogen. Obtaining hydrogen from renewable energy sources means that this element is being seen as the solution to decarbonise every process associated with domestic and industrial consumption.

A firm commitment exists across Spain and in Europe that is driving every process oriented towards this new energy vector at economic, regulatory and technological level.

Thanks to the vocation of its entire team, IZHARIA is committed to green hydrogen, which is obtained from renewable energy, forming part of our lives in a not-so-distant future. As such, it has focused its efforts and talent on participating in European and national research and technology projects, forming part of business consortia with leading domestic and international companies.
