Hydrogen mobility, for a successful energy transition






an energy carrier


Hydrogen is an energy carrier. It brings flexibility to renewable energy systems, as it can be produced, stored, transported and used at a different location. Hydrogen produced by electrolysis using green or low-carbon electricity is a low-carbon fuel.

Long-distance electricity transmission requires heavy investment in infrastructure and connections.

The cost is estimated at around €1 million per kilometer, and up to €20 million per kilometer for submarine high-voltage lines. (source: RTE – Futurs énergétiques 2050).

This poses both an economic and a technical challenge when renewable electricity is generated far from consumption centers (offshore wind power).

Combining green hydrogen with fuel cell technology generates the electricity needed to power the engine and recharge the vehicle’s battery. The chemical reaction emits no pollutants and only water. This contributes to the greening and renewal of fleets, reducing their carbon footprint and environmental impact, and optimizing the operational efficiency of their activity.

Hydrogen, a vector for energy optimization
and flexibility


Hydrogen production is crucial to making our energy system more sustainable. Here’s why:

– Low-carbon hydrogen harnesses renewable energies to store excess electricity in the form of hydrogen, making it easier to transport.

– It also makes it easier to transport energy from production areas to areas of high demand, without the need for high-voltage power lines.

– What’s more, hydrogen offers a flexible, resilient alternative to today’s power grid, helping to prevent overloads.
