Photoelectrocatalysis is a technology that allows the direct transformation of solar energy into chemical energy.
In the photoelectrochemical process, renewable hydrogen and oxygen are produced directly from water and sunlight, without the need of any other external energy source. The reaction takes place in one step in a single device, leading to higher energy efficiencies compared to other solar energy based alternatives.
Repsol begins the study of the potential of photoelectrocatalytic technology.
Laboratory scale proof of concept with results ahead of the state of the art (28 cm2 cell, TRL4).
Joint venture agreement
Enagás joins the development to continue scaling up to a pilot plant through the SUN2HY project.
Design, construction and validation of a new photoelectrochemical cell (TRL5) and demonstration of the technology in a pilot plant (m2 scale, TRL6).
Sunrgyze company Incorporations.
Who we are
SUNRGYZE is a private company focus on the development, industralization, scaling and commercialization of proprietary photoelectrocatalytic technology for competitive production of solar hydrogen.
SUNRGYZE is owned by REPSOL and ENÁGAS, leading Spanish companies in energy projects at international level which are already incorporating renewable hydrogen into their business operations.
SUNRGYZE’s technology is patented and validated at pilot plant scale, having exceeded 4,000 hours of operation in real conditions and relevant environment.
Currently, SUNRGYZE is developing the first pre-commercial demonstration PEC plant, which will be built at the Repsol Industrial Complex in Puertollano and will be operational in 2025.
This technology is one of the 32 projects that the European Commission has selected to receive the impulse of the Innovation Fund Small Scale program .
