Renewable energies have overtaken coal in Europe

Renewable energies have overtaken coal in Europe

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.

ENGIE is preparing the future of shared electric vehicles

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.

Gaya, or how to produce green gas from dry biomass

Gaya, or how to produce green gas from dry biomass

Biomethane has the same properties as natural gas, but it is a 100% renewable clean energy. To develop the sustainable production of this green gas at a local level, ENGIE has been developing the Gaya project for several years – a platform for producing biomethane from dry biomass (wood, straw, agricultural and food waste, etc.). Inaugurated in October 2017 at Saint-Fons in Chemical Valley, south of Lyon, Gaya is a key milestone in the development of so-called 2G (2nd Generation) biomethane.
