Abstract The aim of this work is to analyse the price of renewable hydrogen production in a stand-alone photovoltaic plant. The energy studied herein is generated in a photovoltaic plant. Two dependent parameters that directly affect the price of hydrogen are analysed in detail: the price of the electricity needed to carry out its production process, and the utilisation rate of the connected electrolyser. To this end, a photovoltaic plant is dimensioned with the help of the PVsyst simulator, by means of which the hourly generation curves are obtained. A variable power electrolyser is employed to study its performance according to these photovoltaic production curves. Furthermore, the system is studied by introducing batteries capable of storing the energy left over during the day and of supplying the electrolyser when the photovoltaic power is insufficient. The selling prices calculated in the various scenarios in terms of efficiency and electricity cost are calculated. The significance of a combined analysis of these two parameters and their real impact on the final price of hydrogen is also analysed. This article aims to analyse the price of green hydrogen produced through an isolated photovoltaic system. When the hourly production is evaluated, differences are found with respect to global production that justify the importance of the variables analysed herein, which could not be determined in any other way. The behaviour of isolated production and its effects are discussed. © 2022 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC
