Time to talk about #EnergyEmergency & how to protect the EU & the region👇
On 7 Dec, join @RCaliminte, GIE Deputy Secretary General, at @Eurogas #ARCCzechia Conference to learn more about the #EnergyTransition & the role of gas infrastructure in the 🇨🇿

24/11/22: #EnergyCouncil agreed on a regulation aiming at enhancing #solidarity via better coordination of #gas purchases, exchanges of gas across borders& reliable price benchmarks enhancing.

#EnergyTransparency is an essential part of the 🧩. GIE is a pivotal partner.

💡A “bottom-up” approach to decarbonising #buildings can lead to carbon neutrality, empowering consumers, energy communities, local authorities & suppliers.

So with the buildings sector & small- & medium-sized businesses, we've released a new joint paper: http://bit.ly/3ATLF0u

🗓️@MARCOGAZ, together with @Ener_Community and @GIEBrussels, are pleased to organise the 7th 2022 Monthly #Methane #Monday webinar next week, on 28th November from 14:30-15:30, this time on #MIST- support to #gas system operators to combat #methane #emissions.🏭

Interested in a regional analysis of the status of #decarbonisation in Central & South Eastern #Europe? Here you go👇

HyGreen Provence

By DLVA, Air Liquide, ENGIE and its subsidiary STORENGY (France)

The HyGreen Provence project, created through a cooperation agreement between ENGIE and Air Liquide in 2017, aims to generate green hydrogen from solar energy and store it in underground salt caverns in the French region Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur.

PV electricity production facilities will be erected, as well as electrolyser plants to convert part of the renewable electricity into hydrogen.

The hydrogen will either be used for mobility, supplying a network of filling stations across the region, for heat and cooling for an urban eco-district,and for local industrial users.

The project will be developed into several phases: first, electricity will be produced at a small scale to fuel about 50 public buses by 2023, and then hydrogen storage will be developed in salt caverns by 2024. Eventually, the photovoltaic power and hydrogen storage are expected to be extended in 2027.

Technical aspects

  • The project aims at producing 1300 GWh of solar electricity annually, which represents the local annual consumption of around 450 000 people, and 10 440 tons of green hydrogen at an industrial scale, making it the first large-scale project in France based on hydrogen production and storage.
  • The total budget estimated by HyGreen comes to 300 M€.

Contribution to energy transition

Hydrogen produced from fully renewable sources represents a zero-emission fuel (no greenhouse gases and no particles) for green mobility, for industry (replacing fossil fuels for heat production in various processes) and for electricity production with fuel cells. Therefore, it provides a concrete response to the challenges posed by sustainable mobility and local pollution in urban areas.

The storage of hydrogen helps manage the intermittence of solar energy.

This new project, with a scale and nature unprecedented in France, will contribute to the development of massive renewable hydrogen production projects in France.

It will self-finance the Climate-Air-Energy Territorial Plan of an agglomeration, without any subsidies.
