Repsol and Toyota Spain have among their main lines of action the promotion of net zero emission technologies to contribute to the decarbonisation of society. That shared ambition led both companies to sign a collaboration agreement to promote the use of renewable hydrogen to decarbonize transportation for the next few years.
Through this alliance, Repsol and Toyota Spain will offer their customers a comprehensive solution for mobility based on renewable hydrogen, which includes Toyota fuel cell vehicles powered by renewable hydrogen available in the Spanish market since 2015 and updated to its latest version, commercialized since 2021. These vehicles will be able to use any of the hydrogen refueling solutions that Repsol is working on, tailored to the needs of each client.
Toyota and Repsol share the vision that the deployment of hydrogen-based mobility will be promoted, in a first phase, through professional fleets, and will continue to develop as the market matures. To promote this deployment, future customers who are interested in decarbonizing their fleets using Toyota fuel cell models will be able to refuel renewable hydrogen at the station network that Repsol plans to install in the main mobility and logistics corridors of the Iberian Peninsula. This agreement represents a new step on the path towards decarbonization, in line with the maturity of hydrogen-based technologies.
Repsol has set itself the ambitious goal of becoming a net zero emissions company by 2050. To this end, it is immersed in a transformation process that, based on technological neutrality, leverages the growth of the renewable energy business, the circular economy, energy efficiency, renewable hydrogen and CO2 capture, use and storage (CCUS) technologies, as main axes.
To decarbonize mobility, Repsol is committed to an energy model that combines all the available solutions, complementary to each other, that allow rapid and cost-efficient decarbonization.
For its part, Toyota, under its ‘Let’s Go Beyond’ vision, wants to go beyond zero emission vehicles, with the aim of achieving a connected society without emissions based on hydrogen. It collaborates with companies whose objectives are also geared towards a more efficient world, carries out all its activities under the commitment to minimize the environmental impact as much as possible, optimizing the use of all its resources and supports actions where hydrogen is the great protagonist as a source of clean and sustainable energy, and is called upon to play a strategic role in the future of mobility.
Toyota works from its origin to face environmental challenges, placing technologies around hydrogen in the foreground and trying to make it the main energy source of tomorrow’s society.
