ENGIE Group: ENGIE France Renewables - SHEM - ENGIE France B2C - ENGIE Labs
ENGIE puts responsible growth at the center of its business activities (electricity, natural gas, energy services) in order to face the major challenges of the energy transition to a low-carbon economy. The Group supports these changes by placing innovation at the heart of its customer strategy. www.engie.com
The SHEM (Société Hydro-Electrique du Midi) is the 3rd -largest hydroelectricity producer in France and a major energy player in the Greater Southwest region. It employs 320 people at its head office (Balma - 31), three regional departments (Pau - 64, Brive la Gaillarde - 19, La Cassagne - 66) and nine factory clusters. Its 58 factories and 12 large dams, spread over the Pyrenees, the Lot and Dordogne rivers, produce clean energy without emitting any CO2 and which has been certified 100% renewable by the independent certification body TÜV-SÜD. its facilities, with a total capacity of 783 MW, generate an average of 1,836 GWh per year. SHEM is closely tied to the local areas in which it does its work and contributes to developing them economically as well as socially and environmentally.
ENGIE’s France BtoC business unit sells energy and associated services to private and professional customers. We offer a wide range of energy products: market offerings, innovative pricing such as "Elec'Car" (with -50% during off-peak hours, especially at night) or "Elec Weekend" with -30% off on the weekend. All of our electricity has been green since October 2016 (except for "Happ-e", our 100% digital offering). In 2017, we took the energy transition one step further by creating "My Elec" (letting our customers choose where their renewable energy is produced), or "My Green Gas", which guarantees that the equivalent of 10% of the natural gas used by our customers will be of renewable origin.
We also offer many services through our entities ENGIE Home Services and My Convenience Stores, which aim to provide clients with peace of mind and help them control their energy consumption. These include maintenance, troubleshooting & helplines (for water, gas, and electricity), energy retrofits, personal electricity production and use (My Power)… as well billing insurance and appliance warranties.
