This will see more hydrogen enter the market providing domestic enterprises and businesses the opportunity to transition to hydrogen technologies and decarbonise their operations.

The project will be capable of producing 20,000 tonnes of green hydrogen and is part of Sinopec’s pledge to support China’s dual-carbon goals and pursuance of green, low-carbon development with this project set to promote the development of a green hydrogen industry chain in the region.

According to Risen Energy, the hydrogen project will be the “world’s largest” PV-based hydrogen production facility with the company set to supply its TITAN 650W PV modules for the project.

An executive at Risen Energy said, “Large-size PV modules are designed to increase power output and efficiency as a way to reduce the cost and maximise the effectiveness of PV products, delivering additional power generation benefits to customers.”
