Spanish fossil player plans demo plant for converting PV power directly into green H2 without need for electrolysis as intermediate step

The Spanish group said it is aiming for the novel technology – which doesn’t need the intermediate step of electrolysis crucial to other green H2 production methods – to reach "commercial maturity" by 2030. Repsol is developing the process, called photoelectrocatalysis, together with Spanish gas grid operator Enagas.

The demo plant is slated to occupy close to half a hectare and have a production of 100 kilogrammes of renewable H2 per day. It is planned to be followed by 2028 by the installation of an industrial-scale plant of about 60ha and with a production capacity of up to 10 tonnes of the green gas per day.
