Desarrollo del hidrógeno verde en Chile

Desarrollo del hidrógeno verde en Chile - Grupo Evans
                                                                                                 Nuestro socio Jose Miguel Hernandez, fue entrevistado en el programa “Transformación Digital y Sostenible” en relación al desarrollo del hidrógeno verde en nuestro país. En esta oportunidad, explicó cómo Chile podría posicionarse como uno de las principales potencias en #H2V gracias a la geografía y los espacios disponibles para poder desarrollar estos proyectos. 



Además, se refirió a una serie de desafíos, como los normativos y la aceptación de las comunidades, en el desarrollo del H2V en Chile. “Si las comunidades no son partícipes y no conocen lo que va a ocurrir, (…) todavía a nivel de autoridades no hay un conocimiento concreto, y a nivel de comunidades también, para efectos de poder ordenar lo que es el desplazamiento territorial de hidrógeno”.
