Renewable energies, a key issue

Since an increase in electricity production must not jeopardise the environmental equilibrium, ENGIE is focusing on developing new infrastructures and favours the solutions that are most efficient and produce the lowest CO2 emissions. To date, 22% of the Group’s power capacity comes from renewable resources. Hydropower is of course the main energy source to be exploited, but wind power, solar power, biomass and biogas occupy a growing position in the energy mix.

Hydropower - GDF SUEZ is now ENGIE


Hydraulic energy produces electricity by using the moving power of waterways. It accounts for nearly 90% of the world’s electricity produced from renewable sources, and constitutes 14% of the installed capacity of ENGIE.

Wind power - GDF SUEZ is now ENGIE

Wind power

Aware of the benefits of wind power, ENGIE has been stepping up its production for several years. No.1 in France, the Group is involved in major projects in Europe and across the world and is banking on the sharp growth of this inexhaustible, totally green energy.

Solar energy - GDF SUEZ is now ENGIE

Solar energy

Every year, solar energy would be able to produce more than 20 times the world’s energy needs. Yet, it only accounts for 1% of global electric production capacity. ENGIE plans to take all possible steps to develop its share in this clean, renewable energy, incorporating it increasingly into its energy mix.

Biomass - GDF SUEZ is now ENGIE


While wood may be the biomass resource that has been used the longest to produce energy, it is far from being the only solid and ligneous biomass that can be converted into energy. For more than 10 years now, European leader ENGIE has been developing a unique expertise to improve combustion and make use of other resources.

Geothermal - GDF SUEZ is now ENGIE


Still a low-profile technology at present, geothermal is defined as a renewable, local and eco-friendly source of energy that is simultaneously efficient and economical. It shows considerable potential for heat and power generation.
