Repsol Solmatch is a new service based on a 100% renewable energy model through which we're paving the way for distributed or decentralized electricity generation in Spain. With this project, we are bringing renewable power generation to the point of consumption by designing solar communities in urban centers.
This system produces energy through solar panels installed on privately-owned roofs in an area so that nearby homes can connect to them and enjoy 100% renewable energy. As such, we are promoting new responsible consumption and production circular models, while we drive the use of more efficient and cleaner energy sources.
The Repsol solar communities generate power using solar panels installed on the roofs of a building (Roofers) so that homes (Matchers), located at a maximum distance of 500 meters, can connect to them and benefit from 100% local renewable energy.
This circular initiative reduces CO2 emissions given that the energy generated is 100% renewable. It also optimizes resources as fewer individual installations are required, and therefore less raw materials are used.
With Repsol Solmatch, the first major solar community in Spain, our goal is to set up 70 solar communities in the country in 2020.
Tons of CO2 avoided
Fuels from urban waste
We recover leftover energy from urban waste that has reached the end of its useful life in order to produce fuels.
Drilling mud management
We transform drilling mud waste into new fuels by applying thermal desorption techniques.
We transform plastic waste into circular polyolefins that feature the same quality and functionality of virgin materials.
Lubricants formulated with regenerated bases
We use base oils derived from the regeneration of used oils to produce new lubricants.
Waste treatment in exploration and production operations
We apply bioremediation and compost techniques to make use of waste.
We obtain new polyolefins from recycled materials, while guaranteeing top quality and functionality.
Reusing asset equipment
We extend the useful life of our asset equipment by reusing it in our own operations or those of other companies.
Reusing water from urban wastewater treatment plants
We reuse water from urban wastewater treatment plants to reduce the amount of fresh water consumed.
