Green Hydrogen

Hydrogen is a light gas, naturally present in the universe. Traditionally used in industry, hydrogen is produced by electrolysis of water from water and electricity. This process also enables manufacturers to recover oxygen or heat. Hydrogen is a real way ahead for the energy transition by enabling the development of decentralised renewable energies and the development of green mobility solutions


Renowned as one of the world’s foremost energy operators and a world leader in the energy transition, ENGIE has the ambition of being a major player in hydrogen.


At ENGIE, we firmly believe that hydrogen is the key that will unlock the full potential of renewables and carbon-free energy solutions. It will accelerate the energy transition by allowing numerous green energy technologies to be used with much greater flexibility.


We are committed to developing solutions based on renewable hydrogen, produced by electrolysis using a green energy supply. Hydrogen is the missing link for a decarbonized ecosystem, allowing for the harmonious progress of cities, territories and societies around the globe.


ENGIE aims at operating across the entire value chain of renewable hydrogen, from carbon-free power generation to the three key end uses: mobility, industry and energy storage.


ENGIE will architect and deliver simple, reliable and sustainable green solutions to address its clients requirements for more environmentally responsible energy uses.

    L’hydrogène, l’élément le plus abondant de l’univers, a un rôle majeur à jouer dans la transition énergétique. Produit à partir d’électricité propre, l’hydrogène vert peut non seulement servir à décarboner les processus industriels et à faire rouler des voitures zéro-émission, mais également à stocker l’énergie renouvelable. En tant que fournisseur mondial d’énergie, ENGIE s’investit dans le déploiement de cette énergie d’avenir


    Connu dans le monde comme l’un des principaux opérateurs dans le domaine de l’énergie et leader de la transition énergétique, ENGIE a pour ambition de devenir un acteur incontournable du secteur de l’hydrogène.


    Chez ENGIE, nous sommes fermement convaincus que l’hydrogène est la clé qui libèrera le plein potentiel des énergies renouvelables et des solutions énergétiques sans carbone. Il accélèrera la transition énergétique en facilitant l’utilisation de nombreuses technologies d’énergie verte.


    Nous nous consacrons au développement de solutions reposant sur l’hydrogène renouvelable produit par électrolyse grâce aux énergies vertes. L’hydrogène est le chaînon manquant d’un écosystème décarboné favorisant le progrès harmonieux des villes, territoires et sociétés à travers le monde.


    ENGIE a pour objectif d’intervenir à tous les niveaux de la chaîne de valeur de l’hydrogène renouvelable : de la production d’électricité sans carbone aux trois grandes utilisations finales que sont la mobilité, l’industrie et le stockage d’énergie.


    ENGIE concevra et fournira des solutions vertes simples, fiables et durables pour satisfaire la demande de ses clients sollicitant des applications énergétiques plus écoresponsables.

    Renewable hydrogen is an opportunity to decarbonise industrial processes on a large scale


    The Paris agreement (COP 21) has set ambitious but necessary target to reduce CO2 emissions by 26% to 60% (depending on country) in 2030 compare to 1990 and keep the average global warming temperature below 2°C. Engie has just reached a new milestone in order to help meeting this target. We head to Australia to find out more.
