Exclusive: Plan Hydrogène the next step forward for France, says Areva H2Gen General Manager


History was made in France last month when the government recognised that hydrogen (H2) will play a major role in the energy transition. Nicolas Hulot, Minister of Ecological and Solidary Transition, announced his intention to make France a “world leader in this technology” and revealed plans to allocate €100m ($116.8m) next year to support the nation’s H2 industry.

“Plan Hydrogène” will create a carbon-free industrial sector, develop renewable energy storage capacities and develop zero-emission solutions for road, rail and river transport. From 2019, €100m ($116.8m) will be dedicated to the first deployments of H2 in industry, mobility and energy. ADEME (the French Environment and Energy Management Agency) will drive the deployment of these credits and support projects and actors in the sector throughout France.
