ABOUT US

A team of experts with the agility of a start-up is what we believe this industry was lacking.
With 17 years of dedication and innovation, we have built a solid reputation as a renewable energy development company, grounded in expertise-based confidence with a dash of ambition.
We believe that true green innovation happens when experts with a mission form a team, spot opportunities, and act on them instantly. This is when the magic happens. And by “magic” we mean “hydrogen”.

SUSTAINABLE FUELS

A substitution for fossil fuels that the world will not be imaginable without

The implementation of alternative sustainable fuels into everyday life will change the perception of infrastructure and transportation, also helping to reach carbon neutral goals together. PurpleGreen has thought about every part of this cycle.

POWER GRID

The fundamentally necessary infrastructure to PurpleGreen value chain

Power grid network transmits the electricity produced by PurpleGreen projects:
A) For production of Hydrogen (H2);
B) Into batteries for storage;
C) For end use (households, production facilities, public infrastructure, transportation).

BATTERIES

Works like a regular battery, but with much more power to it

With the implementation of batteries, grid network balancing and electricity trading is provided by PurpleGreen, expanding the range of our services.

AMMONIA

Hydrogen (H2) in combination with Nitrogen (N2) produces Ammonia (NH3)

Ammonia (NH3) is used for end use (alternative fuel, production of fertilizers). Ammonia (NH3) can be transported through EU H2 pipeline or cargo ship for further destinations, as well as transported with cargo trucks to nearest H2 stations.

SOLAR & WIND PARKS

From electrolysis process Hydrogen (H2) is produced

We use agricultural land plots for installing solar and wind farms. Land plots left out are used for agricultural purposes. With PurpleGreen projects, landowners and farmers get paid for land lease as well as harvested products.

Produced electricity is:
A) transmitted to grid network;
B) stored in to batteries, later transmitted to grid network;
C) in combination with added water used for electrolysis process.

HYDROGEN (H2)

From electrolysis process Hydrogen (H2) is produced

Hydrogen (H2) can be transported through EU H2 pipeline or Provaris H2 cargo ship for further destinations, as well as transported with cargo trucks to nearest H2 stations.
