Bouygues Construction and its subsidiary Bouygues Energies & Services, which works to support the energy transition and digital transformation of municipalities, industries and buildings, have invested in PowiDian. This start-up, specialised in green hydrogen to make municipalities energy independent, develops 100% renewable electricity production solutions for remote and energy independent sites.

How does green hydrogen work ?

Green hydrogen is produced through the electrolysis of water using electricity from renewable sources (solar, wind, or hydraulic power). It makes it possible to store energy for long periods of time and at a large scale. This energy in the form of hydrogen can then be used at a later stage to power a fuel cell which will produce electricity once again.

 

What possibilities does green hydrogen present?

A supplement to renewable energy, green hydrogen makes it possible to supply consumers with energy all year round and, in particular, to meet peak demand. In Brütten, Switzerland, a subsidiary of Kraftanlagen, Diamond Lite, has helped to make a house completely independent.

Green hydrogen can also be used to decarbonise industrial processes and power zero emission vehicles. In Solothurn, also in Switzerland, the efficient system at the Aarmatt hybrid utility plant has enabled the integration of renewable energy through green hydrogen in the gas network.

 

The role of Bouygues Energies & Services in the energy transition

Bouygues Energies & Services is supporting its clients through the energy transition by offering a range of services around green hydrogen in France and abroad.

“Green hydrogen is an innovation that fits perfectly into the concept of a circular economy, since it allows us to use renewable energy produced locally to then in turn produce an alternative, carbon-free type of energy for transport or industry.”
