Investment strategies: production, storage and distribution

Strategic investments in green hydrogen should focus on production technologies, including advanced combustion and electrolyser technologies that can dynamically run on renewable energy to maximise both operational efficiency and sustainability, as well as innovative storage and distribution solutions such as liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC), metal hydrides, compression or liquefaction technologies, as well as hydrogen pipelines. These solutions aim to improve the safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of hydrogen storage and transportation to end-users and remove one of the critical bottlenecks in the hydrogen value chain.

Key areas of expertise

  • Electrolysis Projects, such as our Net Zero North West Cluster Plan project in North West England and North East Wales, include tailored recommendations aiming to contribute to the development of efficient and sustainable hydrogen production facilities that answer to regional and industry-specific needs. 

  • Renewable Energy Integration: Given our strong background in renewable energy projects, Equans plays a critical role in integrating green hydrogen production with renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro, geothermal and solar power. This integration is essential to ensure that the hydrogen production process is truly net-zero. 

  • Energy Storage and Solutions: Equans offers solutions in energy storage, an important aspect of managing the intermittency of renewable energy sources. Our capabilities in this area are beneficial for green hydrogen projects, where stored energy can be used to produce hydrogen during peak periods of renewable energy generation. 

  • Infrastructure Development through partnerships: The development of infrastructure for hydrogen transport, storage, and refuelling requires a diversified approach. Equans’ multi-services experience, which combines mechanical and HVAC engineering, along with our capabilities in digital solutions, enables us to provide a comprehensive offering for the development of hydrogen infrastructure. Our Decarbonised H2 hub aims to unite multiple industrial players in the same territory developing a local partnership network to structure the H2 sector in specific regions.

Hyvision: A game-changer in decarbonised energy

Our mobile, turnkey solution Hyvision delivers decarbonised energy through electro-hydrogen generators. Designed for isolated sites, construction areas, and events, Hyvision stands out by reducing CO2 emissions by 70% to 80% compared to traditional diesel generators, offering a silent, odourless, and smoke-free alternative that significantly cuts down noise pollution.
