PLOCAN promotes science in Fuerteventura

The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands took part in the Mini Science and Innovation Fairs in the Canary Islands 2024 in Fuerteventura developing for two days the activity ‘Exploring the Energy Future: Green H2 Workshop’, where relevant topics on renewable energies were discussed.

During this practical activity, participants learned about the need to store energy from renewable sources in order to guarantee a constant electricity supply. Through electrolysis, they broke down water into hydrogen and oxygen using renewable energy. The hydrogen obtained fed a fuel cell, which generated an electric current to run a motor.

This workshop was an opportunity for students to gain practical knowledge about emerging technologies and to reflect on their role in making the world more sustainable.

This activity is financed by the Renewable Energy and Hydrogen project, a project funded by the Government of the Canary Islands and financed under component 17 of the Spanish Government’s Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (PRTR), financed with ‘Next Generation EU’ funds, through the Recovery and Resilience Mechanism (RRM).

Miniferias de la Ciencia y la Innovación en Canarias is an initiative promoted by the Regional Ministry of Universities, Science, Innovation and Culture of the Government of the Canary Islands, through the Canary Islands Agency for Research, Innovation and the Information Society (ACIISI).
