There are a number of reasons that explain the boom in solar energy: installations are more powerful and less expensive, investments have been stepped up, and more encouraging regulations have been introduced. As a result, in more and more countries, industrial operators and electricity producers such as ENGIE are focusing on this solution of the future.
Worldwide investments in renewable energy reached nearly 305 billion dollars in 2015, according to a new report, REthinking Energy1, from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). While this is a good start – these investments have shown constant growth for the past decade – the agency notes that it will take a lot more in order to truly battle the effects of global warming.
2016 was a year of transition. This is one of the observations made by ENGIE in the 2016 edition of “A World of Energy”. A transition towards lower-carbon energy, but also towards new ways of producing and consuming, as ratified in particular by international agreements and national regulations.
According to the reference case projection published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) in its 2017 annual report, production of primary energy in the United States could rise by more than 20% by 2040 especially in natural gas and renewable energy. At the same time, America’s consumption is likely to grow more slowly, making the country a net energy exporter by 2026.
The world of renewable energy is more innovative today than ever before. Cleaner resources, low carbon solutions, smart management: ENGIE continues to lead the energy transition as the energy sector is profoundly evolving. Watch ENGIE's outlook on the future of energy.
Being part of the sustainable transport revolution, leading global energy group ENGIE has joined the upcoming Emirates Electric Vehicle Road Trip (EVRT) as a key sponsor. ENGIE is supplier of EV charging stations along the route of this four day zero-emission race across all seven of the UAE to promote green mobility in the Middle East.
A wind of change is blowing over renewable energies! For several years, ENGIE has been relying on crowdfunding for its wind farm projects. The aim is to be closer to the regions and local inhabitants. The Group is now putting this winning policy into operation in Belgium. Backed up by some of the numbers, we take a closer look at this new collective approach to energy.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), IVECO (a brand of CNH Industrial) and ENGIE announced announced on January 24th their broad collaboration to promote natural gas vehicles and infrastructure in Europe.
As a leader in the energy transition, ENGIE's role is to make the energy sector and its challenges accessible to the general public. With its "Beauty of Energy" Tumblr, illustrated in collaboration with the Curioos artist collective, ENGIE invites you to take a new look at the world of energy by representing keywords relating to the energy transition in images.
The "Consumer Electronics Show" (CES) is the annual event for technological innovation. It takes place in Las Vegas from 5 to 8 January 2017. The ENGIE Group takes part to present its latest innovations, its startups partners and its new collaborations.
