The main innovative fields in the energy sector that are of interest to ENGIE are distributed energy generation, energy storage and demand management.
Distributed generation allows the customer to produce energy, at the municipal level for example. While everyone knows about solar panels, the Group is also interested in combined heat and power as well as wind power.
We also focus on electricity storage particularly via batteries. This is an area in which the technological progress in recent years has been phenomenal in terms of cost and performance.
As for demand management, there are now real opportunities for reducing demand at certain times while promoting demand reduction as a source of income.
These themes are currently the subject of two calls for projects:
- A call for projects onenergy storage
- A call for projects on new decentralized energy offerings for residential customers.@
How is ENGIE working on the future of energy?
Michael E. Webber, ENGIE’s Chief Science and Technology Officer recently spoke to Jennifer L. Schenker from The Innovator about the transformation of the energy sector. Here are some highlights of this interview.I'm interested
Hydrogen Fuels The Future Of European Transport
Today, the transport sector contributes roughly one-quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions within the European Union. According to the European Environment Agency, to meet climate targets we will need to slash emissions from transport 60% by 2050 compared to 1990s levels.I'm interested
HYFLEXPOWER: ENGIE Helps Lead Breakthrough Green Hydrogen Project
Hydrogen is increasingly seen as an energy solution that is both flexible and powerful. Now ENGIE Solutions is teaming up with a consortium of European companies, research institutes and universities to demonstrate that a single “green hydrogen” project can store and distribute renewable electricity, and fuel a high-power industrial turbine.I'm interested
