“Paris de l’hydrogène”: a unique event at the very heart of the French capital, organised by Energy Observer, with the support of the City of Paris.
Within the context of an historic recovery plan, which is giving the hydrogen sector pride of place, the “Paris de l’hydrogene” event is championing various community-based objectives raising awareness about the need for sustainable energy transition and shining a spotlight on the whole of the hydrogen value chain.
In celebration, the Eiffel Tower is being illuminated using an electro hydrogen generator developed by EODev (Energy Observer Developments) with certified renewable hydrogen.
A window on today’s sustainable energies and hydrogen mobility
Made from recycled containers from the CMA-CGM group, this exhibition unveils a timeline designed with the support and expertise of Ademe, retracing the history of energy transition, ecological awareness and the Energy Observer laboratory. Both immersive and educational, its two geodesic domes house monumental screenings together with special screens enabling the showcasing of all the different technologies aboard the laboratory vessel, their applications both at sea and on land, as well as the pioneering solutions encountered around the world through the prism of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for which Energy Observer is the primary French ambassador.
Lighting up the Eiffel Tower using zero-emission hydrogen
The highlight of this demonstration of the potential of zero-emission energies is the illumination of the Eiffel Tower with hydrogen using EODev’s electro hydrogen GEH2® generator. The latter is powered with hydrogen certified renewable by Air Liquide. Highly symbolic and a major first, the structure is all lit up in a striking blue-green hue soundtracked by an original musical composition by Jean-Benoît Dunckel (Air).
