Innovating to develop
Mobility is a fundamental tool to drive progress in society. At the Repsol Technology Lab, we are working on creating new fuels and developing new forms of energy and new models of urban and non-urban mobility, which will allow us to meet the rising demand for transportation with greater sustainability and efficiency.
The battery will play a key role in electric mobility in the coming years. At the Technology Lab we are developing the next generation of batteries to be safer and cheaper and to hold more energy than today's batteries. We are researching how to decrease charging times in the hopes that these developments become a part of the new generation of renewable electricity. We are also developing a new range of fluids specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles to ensure the best lubrication and cooling of their main components.
With sustainability as a priority, we are working on new products to extend the engine's premiere performance and reduce consumption, therefore lowering its carbon footprint. An example is the high-end Repsol Efitec 100 Neotech fuel, inspired by competition, which allows for a more than 18% reduction in consumption and CO2 emissions in engines optimized for its use.
We guarantee the perfect operation of new engines, while at the same time reducing the environmental impact and carbon footprint of our commercial products. With this objective in mind, we are constantly developing new lubricants that, given their lower viscosity and formulation with increasingly more sophisticated technologies, contribute to an improvement in engine efficiency by consuming less fuel, and therefore, reducing CO2 emissions.
AutoGas is the most widely-used alternative fuel in the world and one of the most sustainable options on the market for mobility, given its combustion that hardly generates any particles and complies with the most stringent emission limits, leading to a 15% reduction in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere compared with gasoline vehicles. We are working to ensure that this alternative fuel can be used in all types of vehicles, regardless of their size, in order to reduce their environmental impact and the transport sector's carbon footprint.
We are seeking solutions to improve the sustainability of maritime mobility. For this, we not only work on the formulation of low-sulfur fuel oils but also on the continuous improvement of the overall quality of the final products in order to adapt them to different engines and operating conditions in marine environments, just as we adapt our lubricants to the new operating conditions.

Our participation in MotoGP allows us to put our products to the test under the most adverse and demanding conditions, and then apply that knowledge acquired in high-performance racing to the products we market in our service stations. Repsol Efitec 100 Neotech is an example of how our scientists at the Repsol Technology Lab have been able to bring the fuels and lubricants from the racing world to the general public.
In line with our slogan "electric cars for all", we seek to find a solution to the challenge of electric vehicle recharging through robotization and smart batteries. A pioneering recharge system has been developed in this field which enables complete recharging in just minutes.
Using telemetry techniques like in Formula 1 and MotoGP racing, this participatory platform uses an app to analyze driver and car data in order to improve driving and safety, and even creates a driving certificate that is recognized and highly-regarded by more organizations each day.
One possible solution for the future of mobility may mean not only sharing vehicles but also parking spaces. WeSmartPart is a platform that allows for sharing of private parking spaces between many users in cities all over the world.
