Description

Project Rio is a green hydrogen production, storage, transportation, and export hub in West Texas.

It encompasses multiple sites under development in a cluster of counties roughly 200 miles northwest of San Antonio, including solar and battery storage facilities co-located with electrolyzers.

As of February 2024, Apex Clean Energy is developing 6.5 GW of renewable generation capacity to support the hub’s green hydrogen production.

Apex Clean Energy is owned by Ares Management.

The green hydrogen produced on-site would be transported via a new 500-mile hydrogen pipeline built on EPIC Midstream (also owned by Ares Management) to Corpus Christi, for potential conversion to derivatives like ammonia or methanol and available for domestic end-users or export.
