Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element found in the universe. Traditionally used in the oil industry, the chemicals industry and electronics, it has started to be applied in increasingly diverse ways in recent years. Many people predict that it will have a big part to play in the new energy mix of tomorrow. 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.
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.
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.
What changes occurred to energy production and consumption around the world in 2017? Has progress been made with regard to energy efficiency and pollution? In “A World of Energy 2017, ENGIE analyzes the energy environment of yesterday and today, and tries to identify the trends of tomorrow.
Making culture more accessible to everyone is a “harmony project” for ENGIE, which runs different cultural sponsorship projects worldwide to achieve this (museums, exhibitions, palace renovations etc.).
ENGIE has become the principal partner of ENERGY OBSERVER, the world’s first boat to be powered only by hydrogen and renewable energies, an experimental laboratory focused on energy autonomy. Throughout its journey, our expertise and the crew’s imagination will combine in a series of special reports highlighting innovative energy solutions that reconcile performance and sustainability.
Great Britain’s transition to wind energy has been boosted by the installation of several new wind energy farms, significantly reducing the island’s reliance on coal. Discover ENGIE activities in the UK for a sustainable transition.
For the very first time, 2017 saw renewable energies (wind, solar, biomass and hydropower) generate more electricity than coal in Europe, according to a report by Sandbag and Agora Energiewende*, respectively British and German think tanks. The European Parliament, which is seeking to increase the share of renewables in energy consumption by 2030, has no intention of taking its foot off the accelerator. ENGIE is playing a full part in movement by setting concrete targets with respect to developing renewable energies.
Wind energy is poised to be the new leader in renewable energy in the United States, according to the most recent estimates from the American Energy Information Administration (EIA). In the United States, ENGIE operates a portfolio of power and cogeneration plants where natural gas is more and more supplemented by renewable energy.
PlugMyCar is the name of an internal study commissioned by ENGIE Fab with Tractebel ENGIE in Belgium to anticipate the development of electric mobility and its impact on our ways of traveling. Vincenzo Giordano, one of the joint authors of the study, explains that the numerical modeling used in the study is not based on “our vision of what will happen in 2030.” Instead, it posits a “disruptive scenario” which will make it possible to begin the process right away of preparing the future of sustainable mobility.
