Hydrogen
Energy revolution

For the Akuo group, renewable energy lies at the heart of the hydrogen ecosystem. The production of hydrogen from renewable energy is a tool for fighting “grey” hydrogen produced from fossil fuels.  This production can notably be undertaken via an electricity-consuming water electrolysis system, on both a small and large scale (small electrolysers, industrial generators, production plants, etc.)

The hydrogen produced in this manner can then fuel not only the electro-mobility sector (a growing number of electric cars are equipped with a hydrogen tank and a fuel cell supplying electricity to the motor, an entirely zero-emission process) but also industry (chemicals, steel, pharmaceuticals, fertiliser, etc.), which is a major global consumer of hydrogen.

Lastly, the hydrogen solution is a way of storing renewable energy for lengthy periods. In high-pressure gas, very-low-temperature liquid or “solid” form, this stored hydrogen helps balance renewable energies that are subject to seasonal fluctuations or in non-interconnected regions.

In order to develop Zero-Emission Mobility, Akuo and its partners Atawey, JC Decaux and Galeries Lafayette have been working together on the Last Mile project, which will allow the wide-scale deployment of a network of compact and decentralised Renewable Hydrogen refuelling stations. These stations will be fuelled with green energy supplied by Akuo. Just 400 small hydrogen utility vehicles will enable the emission of almost 35,500 tonnes of CO2 to be avoided over 15 years.
