Onshore wind energy

Onshore wind energy

In Brazil, ENGIE supplies L’Oréal with 100% renewable energy. L’Oréal is aiming to reduce its CO2 emissions substantially by 2020. The 86 wind turbines in ENGIE’s Trairi wind farm, in northeastern Brazil, are helping it achieve its goals. By providing plants, research and distribution centers and the head office with wind energy, 7,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions are prevented, which is equivalent to planting 43,000 trees.

Solar energy

Solar energy

In Mexico, six new renewable energy plants will be built thanks to a joint venture between ENGIE and Tokyo Gas. Two wind farms and four solar photovoltaic plants will produce enough power to supply 1.3 million households throughout Mexico, on a 15-year power purchase contract. The project will contribute to meeting the Mexican government’s target of 35% of clean energy sources by 2024.

Biomass

Biomass

In Switzerland, the new ecological Sisslerfeld power plant, one of the country’s largest biomass-fueled power plants, will reduce CO2 emissions by 50,000 tonnes per year by comparison with the old fossil-fuel plant. The biomass plant supplies steam to the DSM Nutritional Products production facility in Sisseln as well as the neighboring Syngenta and Novartis plants. Electricity produced by Sisslerfeld – enough to power the equivalent of 17,500 local homes – is fed into the public grid or used directly by the DSM plant. The wood chips needed for energy production are delivered from a maximum radius of 100 km. The project is making a significant contribution to the Swiss Energy Strategy 2050.

Onshore geothermal

Onshore geothermal

ENGIE is providing 100 GWh of green heat to households in the towns of Champs-sur-Marne and Noisiel, in the Paris region. Employing at least 80% geothermal energy, this is a 25-year public service delegation contract with the Paris-Vallée de la Marne conurbation authority (CAPVM) for the construction and operation of a 20 kilometer-long heat network. The new network will contribute to the decarbonization of this estate and will give green credentials to buildings that will be constructed in this territory in the future. The network will also help combat energy insecurity by guaranteeing affordable and stable prices for future users.

Offshore wind power

Offshore wind power

Offshore wind power has the potential to generate up to twice as much power as onshore! ENGIE is investing in major fixed and floating offshore wind power projects in Europe to capture the enormous potential offered by this source of energy and make an active contribution to the long-term development of this emerging industry.
