As a leader in the energy revolution, ENGIE offers a comprehensive range of clean mobility solutions that transform the way energy is used. The Group has developed a systems-based approach that combines its skills and expertise in alternative fuels, transport infrastructures, smart transit systems, and upstream design and planning. Improving air quality, reducing noise pollution, keeping traffic flowing and optimizing transit networks: here are some of the key measures of ENGIE’s green mobility program, Better Mobility TODAY.
“Mobility is a key issue for our major cities, which by 2050 will be home to 67% of the world’s population. At ENGIE, we are contributing to the creation of a new form of mobility that is more fluid, cleaner and more economical in cities and regions throughout the world.”Isabelle Kocher, CEO of ENGIE
The transport of people or goods is a very energy-intensive sector, and leads to the rejection of a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.
Adoption of cleaner fuels as an alternative to oil is key to improving air quality in cities.
Public transport infrastructures: Optimizing the use of existing infrastructures must correspond to changes in needs as well as limited natural and budgetary resources.
#ENGIEHarmonyProject promotes innovative, collaborative and sustainable projects for harmonious progress
By connecting road infrastructures to communication technologies and limiting the use of individual means of transport, urban congestion can be reduced.
Improving the quality of life and developing smarter mobility: public transport infrastructure, intelligent transportation systems, refueling infrastructure for green fuels
How to fight against pollution and global warming in cities? How to improve traffic flow and safety? The challenges of green mobility, to which ENGIE provides solutions, are lowering CO2 emissions, reducing noise and developing accessibility. Cleaner fuels such as electricity, gas and hydrogen offer greener, more cost-effective and more convenient transportation solutions for users. Intelligent transportation systems optimize existing infrastructure to help communities develop in the light of their region’s needs and resources. Innovative solutions for harmonious urbanization.
In December, the EU Parliament and Member States agreed on ambitious targets for 2030 demanding a reduction of CO2 emissions from new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles by 37,5% and 31% respectively. Negotiations on 2030 targets for trucks are not yet finalized but here as well, ambitious proposals are on the table.
With the growth of urbanization by 2050, we will have 2.4 billion new inhabitants and 2/3 of us with live in the city, automobile transport will almost double and passenger kilometers almost 1.5 times higher. The consequences are already alarming today, on multiple levels – economic, human, social and environmental.

On the occasion of Viva Technology 2019, which is being held in Paris from 16 to 18 May 2019, Ovarith Troeung will discuss the importance of zero carbon mobility, the cornerstone of sustainable and livable cities.
In metropolises and large cities today, journey times on public transit networks are still very long. This can be discouraging as many of us are convinced that mass transit is at the heart of more sustainable mobility.
