Efficient, custom-made solar panels for everyone... That's what ENGIE Electrabel is now able to offer homeowners in Belgium. Regardless of whether they are ENGIE customers or not, everyone in the country can now have their own custom-made photovoltaic installation, complete with real-time monitoring of electricity generated and consumed.
In order to help remote communities in Asia-Pacific to produce cleaner and cheaper energy, ENGIE has developed a new power solution. Combining solar energy with hydrogen energy storage, the solution is capable of delivering electricity 24/7 without emitting CO2, at a competitive price.
Using the riches of the environment to generate renewable energy in ways that integrate more effectively with local regions: that's the aim of ENGIE Electrabel, Belgium's leading generator of green energy. At the Coo-Trois-Ponts pumped storage hydropower station in Wallonia, this goal is a reality, thanks to the combined benefits of energy storage and energy generated from the sun and wind. The Coo-Trois-Ponts power station is a crucial link in securing Belgium's electricity supply.
The countries of the Middle East have suffered a dramatic fall in oil prices since June 2014. Their response has been to turn to a new economic model focused on green energy generation. As the leading private developer of energy and water services in the region, the ENGIE Group is accelerating the pace of this energy transition by exploiting synergies between its production plants to bring energy closer to customers.
For the world of industry, the energy transition is not just a social reality, it's also a major factor for competitiveness and a new way of working in a more responsible, more collaborative and more connected context. ENGIE is responding to these new challenges with a dedicated digital solution called 'blu.e by ENGIE'.
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is an extremely promising fuel to reduce the future environmental impact of sea and river transport. For this reason, ENGIE and its partners Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK Line, by launching their common Gas4Sea brand, are committed to developing LNG as a marine fuel supply offer through LNG bunkering vessels.
In March this year, ENGIE presented the first five new businesses to be developed by employees in the Group's own business incubator. NextFlex is one of them... This startup makes it possible to reduce the power consumption of an industrial site on demand and in less than two hours. It also recycles unconsumed power generated on site to grid operators. Its creator Christophe Huguet explains...
On Friday 26, 2016, the United Nations communicated the first issuance of 1,7 Million Carbon Credits that were generated by the Jirau hydropower plant (40% ENGIE) during the commissioning phase between July 2014 and February 2015. This confirms Jirau’s effectiveness as the world's largest UN certified renewable decarbonization investment. When fully operational at the end of 2016, about 6 million Certified Emission Reductions will be generated each year, enough to compensate the Green House Gas (GHG) emissions of Brazil’s international air transport operations.
Energy generation from renewable resources is growing faster in Latin America than anywhere else in the world. So what could be more natural than looking to this sector to offset its economic slowdown?
North America is producing increasing quantities of non-conventional hydrocarbons and generating more and more energy from renewable sources. The ENGIE Group has had an operational presence here for many years, and is currently restructuring its business portfolio in favor of an energy mix that delivers lower CO2 emissions alongside innovative solutions for its customers.
