Hydrogen Energy

Exploring the potential of hydrogen 

Part of Our Transition

ENGIE is making significant investments in renewable energy generation across the globe, including in Australia.  

We’re also exploring the use of hydrogen as an alternative energy source, including a project in Western Australia.

ENGIE’s plan is to operate across the entire value chain of renewable hydrogen, from carbon-free power generation to the three key end uses: mobility, industry and energy storage. 

Why is hydrogen so important?

We believe that hydrogen is the key that will unlock the full potential of renewable energy. It will help the energy transition by allowing numerous other energy technologies to be used with much greater flexibility. 

About Hydrogen 

Hydrogen is a light gas, naturally present and the most abundant element in the universe. Traditionally used in industry, hydrogen is produced via electrolysis, splitting water into its base elements, hydrogen and oxygen. This process also enables manufacturers to recover oxygen or heat.

Hydrogen offers a level of flexibility that makes it useful for storing and recovering excess generated energy, especially energy from renewable sources. It acts as a buffer to match supply with demand. It can also be used to generate energy, for example via fuel cells that power hybrid vehicles or autonomous energy production systems. The heat generated during the hydrogen production process can also be used to heat buildings. 

Our Credentials

Yuri Renewable Hydrogen to Ammonia Project

ENGIE and Mitsui’s aim is to develop one of the world’s first industrial-scale renewable hydrogen projects to provide feedstock into Yara Pilbara Fertilisers' (Yara) existing ammonia operations near Karratha in Western Australia. 

Upon completion, the first phase of the Yuri project could produce up to 640 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year as a zero-carbon feedstock for Yara’s ammonia production facility in Karratha. This project is receiving funding from ARENA and the WA Renewable Hydrogen Fund as part of the Western Australian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Strategy.
