Heading for green hydrogen?
900,000 tonnes of hydrogen are used each year to meet the needs of industry. 95% of this is produced from fossil fuels, which are responsible for emitting around 12 Mt of carbon dioxide in France, or around 3% of national emissions. A growing number of innovations are helping drive the shift towards green hydrogen. Bouygues Energies & Services and Bouygues Construction have invested in PowiDian, a start-up specialising in autonomous energy production using green hydrogen.
