Created by the natural transformation of organic matter, natural gas can reduce CO2 emissions by up to a half by comparison with other fossil energies and is an effective complement to the production of renewable electric energy. ENGIE is active throughout the natural gas value chain and supplies more than 16 million customers in Europe.
In Paris Match, Isabelle Kocher, CEO of ENGIE, reviews the great progress made by the Group in promoting renewable energies: a 1.5 billion euro Green Bond, a stronger strategy based on decarbonized, decentralized and digitalized solutions, and training intended to support employees dealing with changes in their professions.
“A World of Energy” details changes that occurred in the energy universe in 2015 and 2016 – including the battle against climate change, new technologies and efforts by governments to produce cleaner energy – and highlights transformations underway in the global energy arena.
As Europe takes action to combat climate change, the contribution made by coal to European power generation continues to fall. A recent survey published by the WindEurope non-profit industry association confirms this trend, and indicates that wind power capacity has now overtaken the installed capacity of coal-fired plants in Europe.
As we rise to overcome the challenges of the transition to clean energy and a low carbon economy, ENGIE draws on three areas of expertise: electricity, natural gas, and energy services. The Group is developing innovative, effective solutions for all of its customers, whether households or professionals, towns or regions, businesses or industry.
