Green hydrogen provides industry and regions with a unique opportunity: it can be produced locally from renewable energy (solar, wind, hydroelectricity), and stored at an industrial plant or in underground caverns. This short energy channel offers industry and regions greater energy autonomy, as well as employment opportunities and new industrial ecosystems. Which is why ENGIE is standing ready to provide them with the support they need.
From mobility to district heating and carbon-free industrial processes, regions and industry players are looking for viable ways to decarbonise their activities. We support their transition and offer them pertinent solutions to meet the specificities of their environment: many underground caverns for hydrogen storage, high renewable energy capacity, industrial basins with high CO2 emissions, etc.
The Group is fully aware that it must meet these demands if it is to work with local public and private stakeholders to implement a new efficient and competitive hydrogen ecosystem and, ultimately, launch production and distribution platforms. To do this, we will also be adapting our facilities to create dedicated hydrogen transport networks.
