From sunlight to hydrogen

World leader in the development, industrialization and commercialization of proprietary and patented photoelectrocatalysis technology (PEC) for renewable hydrogen production.

Sunrgyze Technology

Sunergyze has developed a pioneering photoelectrocatalysis technology that, after ten years of research, has been tested for more than 4,000 hours in the pilot plant installed at Repsol Technology Lab.

Photoelectrocatalysis

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.

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 .
