Country: Uruguay

Document type: Draft National Roadmap

Title: Green Hydrogen Roadmap in Uruguay

Released: June 2022 (English language version not available at time of launch)

Summary Points:

English language press reports indicate the draft Roadmap envisages a three phase deployment approach:

  • Phase 1: 2022-2025 – focus is on development of regulations and pilot projects, culminating in 200-500 MW of renewables capacity supporting hydrogen production.
  • Phase 2: 2026 to 2030 – targeting electrolysis projects of between 100-200 MW, with up to 2-4 GW of renewables capacity / 1-2 GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030.
  • Phase 3: Post 2030 – targeting 20 GW of renewables capacity / 10 GW of capacity to produce hydrogen and hydrogen derivatives by 2040.

It is reported that earlier in 2022 Uruguay launched a AUD US$10 million fund to promote green hydrogen projects in the next ten years and received ten applications which (as at time of Roadmap launch) were being processed.

A consultation period for the draft Roadmap ends on August 15, 2022.
