On November 13, Alexandre Caizergues, the French kitesurfer who has been sponsored by ENGIE since 2010, improved his own world speed record for kitesurfing over 500 meters with a stratospheric average speed of 57.97 knots, equivalent to 107.36 km/h! The 60 knots barrier is within reach.
In cooperation with Schneider Electric, ENGIE is excited to unveil the microgrid SPORE (Sustainable Powering of Off-Grid Regions), a cutting-edge research project into green and cost-effective energy for off-grid regions.
We all know that offshore wind speeds are much higher than onshore wind speeds. But most of us don’t know just how much these significantly stronger winds can be translated into a much higher level of electricity generation. The study published by two researchers at the Carnegie Institution for Science* delivers some answers to questions like these. ENGIE is already invested in major offshore wind projects to harness this considerable natural resource.
Two thirds of all new capacity installed worldwide is now supplied from renewable sources, particularly thanks to growth in solar energy, according to a new report published by the International Energy Agency (IEA)*. Renewables currently account for 20% of ENGIE’s energy mix; the Group is aiming for them to contribute 25% to its production portfolio by 2020.
The PowerZee app motivates people to reduce their energy consumption and makes it fun for consumers to save energy by turning it into a game. With the establishment of ENGIE Lab Singapore, supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), solutions will be continuously developed to address the region's energy challenges in a bid to build a better city for future generations.
It's already a reality for some uses, and there’s no doubt that in the future it will become a reality for all of us, including industry: 100% green natural gas produced locally with zero environmental impact! It's an energy supply channel that ENGIE is actively involved in developing as part of transforming our energy system by 2050. The energy transition is a revolution that cannot happen without gas!
A 1.6% annual increase in the consumption of natural gas is forecast over the next five years, according to the International Energy Agency. It will be chiefly driven by the demand of the industrial sector, for customers both connected to the gas network and not. So why should industrial operators turn to using liquefied natural gas, and for what uses?
As a fleet manager, do you know that natural gas for vehicles (NGV) is now the world's leading alternative fuel? And that hydrogen, is also making steady progress, thanks to fuel cells? These alternative fuels have numerous environmental, economic and health benefits. We look at some of their advantages.
Wind energy harnesses the driving force of the wind and transforms it into electricity. In the present period of energy transition, this increasingly cost-effective renewable may well represent the future of energy. Both onshore and offshore, wind energy is establishing itself as a trend, particularly in Europe. We take a closer look.
