Areva H2Gen: hydrogen – an opportunity to build a better world


Producing hydrogen (H2) by electrolysing water is a unique way of storing intermittently-produced renewable energy, developing clean transportation and reducing the carbon footprint of certain industrial processes.

Industrial start-up Areva H2Gen is one of five global players, and the only one in France, to be able to deliver on these promises using Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysis technology, explained CEO Pascal Pewinski (left).

“Two major challenges face the world today: reducing CO2 emissions and atmospheric pollution. Climate change and global warming are impacting the environment and people,” Pewinski told gasworld. “Increasing use of renewable energyis one solution to cut back on GHG emissions; however its development is as yet limited given that production is intermittent. Developing the ability to store surpluses produced on especially sunny and windy days is now of the utmost importance.”
