This year, three women from ENGIE took part in the 66 Miles programme, led by the open innovation consultancy firm Five by Five and the women’s incubator, Willa (formerly Paris Pionnières). After four months of intensive work, the year group from 2018 completed the programme on Tuesday 12 June with a big oral exam in front of an audience of ENGIE teams, personalities from outside the company, including Mounir Mahjoubi, Secretary of State for digital, and the press. Three women, each responsible for a very different project, inspirational and inspired, all of whom have adopted Isabelle Kocher’s motto, "the company is part of the solution... and not the problem".
Today, half of the world’s population lives in cities. By 2050, that figure will rise to three quarters: some six billion people. How can we reconcile demographic growth and quality of life? Or the increased need for energy and energy austerity? And urban development and the conservation of resources? ENGIE is starting to provide answers to these questions today, through its #bettercitiestoday strategy.

Off the coast of Singapore, an island is becoming a full-scale laboratory for the deployment of an autonomous energy network, a multi-energy microgrid – and hydrogen is a key element.
Due to the growing share of renewable energy in the energy mix in France and the world, energy storage capacities need to be developed to use these energy sources in a more efficient way. Power-to-Gas is one of the innovative solutions allowing to benefit from the renewable power surplus by transforming it into hydrogen or synthetic methane while recycling carbon dioxide (CO2) and making the gas in our networks greener.
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.
