Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


As part of its National Hydrogen Strategy and with the goal of fostering the creation of a global hydrogen market and becoming an exporter country, Portugal will further develop and promote its Sines green hydrogen project.

This project has the potential to be classified as an Important Project of Common European Interest - IPCEI, and constitutes an important strategic opportunity for the country. Bearing in mind the great interest triggered by the Sines project, the European Commission may consider eligible, for recognition as IPCEI, a group of unique projects included in a common structure, or in a program that pursues the same objectives, contributing to the complementarity and achievement of an important European objective.


Considering the advantages to complement and reinforce the integrated value chain, Portugal is opening the opportunity to participate in projects in the hydrogen sector, provided that national and European strategic coherence in this field is guaranteed.


We are urging international players to come forward and take part in this project. For the purpose of submitting expressions of interest, companies must access and complete the Project Summary Form available at and submit it until the 17th of July.
