Facing the environmental challenges of the 21st century, ENGIE is playing a decisive role in the field of energy. At the heart of a radical transformation of its businesses, the Group has announced projects that embody the tremendous potential of the energy revolution.

ENERGY OBSERVER is the world’s first hydrogen-powered boat, with no greenhouse gas emissions or particulates. A true floating laboratory, it is autonomous in energy and works thanks to a combination of renewable energies feeding a system for producing hydrogen from seawater.

For the past 6 years, Victorien Erussard, an ocean racing yachtsman and French merchant navy officer, and Jérôme Delafosse, a professional deep sea diver and documentary filmmaker, have led this 21st century expedition to explore possible ways of fighting against climate change

After sailing around France in 2017 to ensure the reliability of the vessel’s technologies, ENERGY OBSERVER continued its voyages in the Mediterranean Sea in 2018 before embarking on a tour of Northern Europe this year.

Hydrogen at the heart of the energy revolution

Hydrogen at the heart of the energy revolution

Green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis of water using renewable electricity, with the benefit of a zero carbon footprint. Green hydrogen, through its long-term storage capacity, is a source of energy of the future and ENGIE is already offering manufacturers the opportunity to produce their own green hydrogen on their production site.

An ambitious development strategy

An ambitious development strategy

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.
