HYDROGEN, ACCELERATOR OF THE ZERO-CARBON TRANSITION
At ENGIE we are convinced that renewable hydrogen, produced by water electrolysis, is the key to accelerating the zero-carbon transition: development of green mobility, decarbonation of massive industrial uses of hydrogen (fertilizers, refineries, chemicals, etc.), better integration of intermittent renewable energies into the power network, massive storage of the surplus electricity produced.
Used in addition to all green energies to satisfy and decarbonize many uses, hydrogen can become the mainstay of 100% renewable territories.
From research to marketing, we are involved in the entire renewable hydrogen value chain, from production to end uses: strategy, design, engineering, construction of low-energy assets, digital platforms, operation, financing and commitment to results.
We are working on three areas of development: industrial uses, mobility and hydrogen as an energy carrier, on which we are developing solutions, forging partnerships and exploring various innovative technologies.
We combine the expertise of all our teams internationally and in France, including ENGIE Lab CRIGEN, Tractebel, ENGIE Hydrogen, ENGIE Solutions, ENGIE Green, GNVERT and Storengy to develop a wide range of solutions on an industrial scale.
We implement these solutions with our customers in territories. We federate players in the Hydrogen ecosystems to accelerate the development of hydrogen uses.
From the HyGREEN Provence project in Manosque to produce, store in saline cavity and distribute renewable hydrogen on an industrial scale, ZEV in Auvergne and Rhône-Alpes for the construction of 20 hydrogen stations in France by 2030, HyPORT in Occitania for the construction of 8 hydrogen stations in the region, in order to run zero-emission buses and vehicles with locally-produced green energy, or the R&D project HERMES with ADEME and the Luxembourg National Research Fund on the mechanisms for deploying hydrogen mobility in the Ile de France region and their environmental impacts.
