The PSOE and United We Can this Tuesday in the plenary session of Congress rejected the PP’s draft law with a regulatory framework for hydrogen, which also did not have the support of Vox or Ciudadanos.

To defend his law, MP Juan Diego Requena has claimed that the proposal would make Spain a pioneering country in Europe, arguing that it is necessary to facilitate the planned investments and put in place the mechanisms to put an end to any uncertainty prepare for their production and transport and provide means for the intended use.
