- ENGIE offers its clients a complete supply solution for electric vehicles that run on hydrogen by designing, building and operating stations and supplying hydrogen.
- The hydrogen is produced on site through water electrolysis using electricity that could come from renewable resources.
- 92% of the earth’s inhabitants today are exposed to poor air quality, according to the WHO, particularly in large cities.
- To fight against pollution and purify the air in towns, developing vehicles that run on a hydrogen fuel cell is a major lever.
- Like battery-driven electric vehicles, those running on a hydrogen fuel cell emit no CO2 or other pollutants, and if renewable power resources are used for electrolysis, the carbon balance is excellent.
- Vehicles running on hydrogen fuel cells have a very high autonomy: 350 km for a bus, and 500 to 700 km for a sedan with a charging time that is equivalent to that of thermal vehicles.
- But for towns and companies to invest more in vehicles that run on hydrogen fuel cells, they need to have charging stations set up at strategic points in a town.
- ENGIE handles the integration, operation and maintenance of hydrogen filling stations.
- Its wide partner network enables the Group to offer a complete turnkey solution that is tailored to local challenges.
For who ?
- Local authorities that want to offer an innovative clean-transport solution for buses, service vehicles, delivery vehicles, taxis and other uses that require zero-emission vehicles that are easily charged.
- Public-transport operators that use buses running on hydrogen fuel cells.
- Companies looking for a cleaner vehicle fleet with a low carbon footprint, particularly for goods transport.
