Risen Energy Co. will be supplying 210mm 650W photovoltaic modules to Sinopec’s 361-megawatt (MW) green hydrogen demonstration project.
The project, which will be designed to produce an annual output of 20,000 tonnes, is expected to be the world’s largest PV-based hydrogen production facility.
“Large-size PV modules are designed to increase power output and efficiency as a way to reduce the cost and maximize the effectiveness of PV products, delivering additional power generation benefits to customers,” according to Risen Energy.
The project is located in Kuqa County, Xinjiang in China.
In partnering with Sinopec, Risen Energy plans to broaden the application of clean energy by exploring new approaches to PV-based hydrogen production with its integrated competence in products and technologies.
The project also demonstrates Sinopec’s commitment to implement a green, low-carbon development strategy.
