Net-Zero Basque Industrial SuperCluster at the EPRI European Workshop Week

SPRI has presented the progress made in the defining of the roadmaps for the decarbonisation of the energy intensive Basque industrial sectors.

SPRI, as the coordinator of the Net-Zero Basque Industrial SuperCluster, has presented the progress made in the defining of the roadmaps for the decarbonisation of the energy intensive Basque industrial sectors.

Cristina Oyón, the SPRI Director of Technology, Innovation and Sustainability, went over the pinpointed measures that require technological development in the session on industrial decarbonisation and electrification during the 7th “EPRI European Workshop Week”. From 14 to 16 March, the main players of the international energy sector gathered there to find the way forward to face the major innovation challenges that the industry is facing in the energy transition up to 2050.

The Supercluster’s participation at the event is thanks to the partnership between SPRI and EPRI. On 5 December, an agreement was signed between SPRI and EPRI to accelerate the process to decarbonise Basque industry as part of the NZBIS initiative. The EPRI President and CEO, Arshad Mansoor, and the Basque Government’s Minister for Economic Development, Sustainability and the Environment, Arantxa Tapia, and the SPRI General Manager, Aitor Urzelai, as the promoter partners of the initiative, along with representatives of the project’s main partners (Petronor, Iberdrola and the Energy Cluster) were all at the signing ceremony.

Thanks to the partnership, EPRI will provide support and the experience of its staff in the US and Europe to work together to identify decarbonisation technology, specifically, regarding electrification, energy efficiency and hydrogen technologies, from an objective and independent perspective.

Net-Zero Basque Industrial SuperCluster (NZBIS) is an initiative promoted by the Basque Government and in conjunction with the two leading energy companies of the Basque Country – Petronor-Repsol and Iberdrola –; its goal is to accelerate the path towards zero net emissions in the Basque Country, by fostering the decarbonisation of the energy supply and energy efficiency in the industrial sectors and by creating market opportunities based on expanding new technologies and innovative services.
