Interinstitutional Group

In order to promote the Green Hydrogen strategy, we are working in an interinstitutional group formed by the following organizations:

  • The Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining is responsible for designing and implementing government policies related to industrial, energy, mining, telecommunications, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises sectors, aimed at the transformation and strengthening of national productive system, of its energy matrix and the communications system, for sustainable development with social justice, within the framework of regional integration and insertion in a globalized world.

 

  • The Ministry of Economy and Finance is responsible for the superior management of national economic, financial and commercial policy; coordinate fiscal policies, its planning and carry out the programming and control of its execution.

 

  • The Ministry of the Environment is in charge of the execution of national environmental policy, environmental regulation, sustainable development and conservation and use of natural resources.

 

  • ANCAP is the public utility company in the Uruguayan market for fuels and lubricants, portland cement and in the development of biofuels.

 

  • UTE is the public utility company responsible for the development of electricity generation, transmission, distribution and commercialization activities.

The vision of the Government is to gradually generate capacities and experience. At the same time, advance in a National Green H2 Strategy and assist in the adaptation of safety and environment regulations. Likewise, we are already exploring the needs regarding port facilities, thinking about exportation.
