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.
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.
Both within and immediately surrounding ENGIE, a community is forming, driven by the desire to design and deploy new solutions combining performance and sustainability, to contribute to more harmonious progress. This community is made up of people who want to lead a powerful collective action that will give everyone the power to act. We call them Imaginative Builders. Hélène Pierre is a business developer at ENGIE Lab CRIGEN. She works primarily on the development of research projects, pilots and demonstrators that involve the local communities in the area of hydrogen technologies.
Off the coast of Singapore, an island is becoming a full-scale laboratory for the deployment of an autonomous energy network, a multi-energy microgrid – and hydrogen is a key element.
Due to the growing share of renewable energy in the energy mix in France and the world, energy storage capacities need to be developed to use these energy sources in a more efficient way. Power-to-Gas is one of the innovative solutions allowing to benefit from the renewable power surplus by transforming it into hydrogen or synthetic methane while recycling carbon dioxide (CO2) and making the gas in our networks greener.

As a world energy supplier committed to the energy transition, ENGIE is investing in the development of hydrogen. We want to give you a clearer idea of this energy of the future.
“We need to find the right economic models for using renewable hydrogen in transport, micro-networks, gas networks etc., in order to be able to scale up”. Isabelle Kocher, ENGIE CEO, in an article published on LinkedIn on June 11th, 2018.
The GRHYD project, launched in 2014, tests the injection of hydrogen into the region’s natural gas distribution grid to meet residents’ needs in terms of heating, domestic hot water and cooking. This innovative initiative is earmarked for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020, as wished by the French government.

Throughout June, we are giving you a chance to find out about hydrogen, its potential and the issues surrounding its development. You will find a series of articles and interviews in a special feature on hydrogen. This article is written by Franck Bruel, Executive Vice President of ENGIE, member of the Executive Committee and head of the France B2B BU.
Regularly discussed in the press, green hydrogen is increasingly presented as an energy asset of importance in a sustainable energy mix. So to kick off Hydrogen Month at ENGIE, we invite you to find out more about how it is produced and what its applications are.
ENGIE sees renewable hydrogen as key to accelerating the energy transition, and an essential component of tomorrow’s energy mix. It’s a belief that is now being translated into a massive rollout of projects marking the Group’s commitment to establishing and building this new energy industry sector.
