ENGIE wins additional funding for Europe’s largest hydrogen vehicles project


ENGIE and partners have secured additional funding to implement the Zero Emission Valley Hydrogen project.

The Environment and Energy Management Agency has provided €14.4 million for the deployment of hydrogen distribution stations.

Two-thirds of the funding will support the installation of hydrogen distribution stations and electrolysers to produce hydrogen from electricity and water. The remaining third will be used to acquire an additional 200 hydrogen vehicles.

ENGIE, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, Michelin, the Bank of Territories and Crédit Agricole plan to put 1000 hydrogen vehicles into circulation and 20 hydrogen distribution stations.

2 hydrogen buses for the Greater Chambery and 50 light vehicles will be piloted as taxis and 148 vans.

ENGIE is committed to the deployment of hydrogen in France and around the world as part of its energy transition.

Willi Meixner, CEO of Power Generation Operations at Siemens Gas and Power speaks about the role power-to-X plays towards decarbonisation – specifically, the role hydrogen can play and why sector coupling is key.
