Inaugurated on February 14 by Laurent Wauquiez, president of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and Xavier Dullin, president of Grand Chambéry, the ATAWEY green hydrogen station in Chambéry has already delivered 50 hydrogen fill-ups.
Professionals with a hydrogen car, such as Taxis de Chautagne or the Vicat group, come to the hydrogen station to refuel and thus have a range of 700 km. It is therefore 35,000km traveled thanks to the green hydrogen produced by the ATAWEY station and nearly 4 tonnes of CO2 emissions avoided.
This station is part of the “Zero Emission Valley” project carried by Hympulsion and financed by the Auvergne Rhone Alpes region, ADEME, the European Union, Engie, Michelin, Crédit Agricole and the Banque des Territoires. The project aims to install a network of hydrogen stations throughout the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region in order to mesh the territory and reduce CO2 emissions. The project also supports the acquisition of 1,000 hydrogen vehicles in parallel with the installation of hydrogen stations.
For ATAWEY, based in Le Bourget du Lac, this is a first step towards the installation of 7 other hydrogen stations in the region and deployment in France and Europe.
Laurent WAUQUIEZ – President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region said, “I am very proud to participate today in the inauguration of the first hydrogen charging station of our major Zero Emission Valley project. This positions us as the Region of excellence in Europe in terms of hydrogen development. , a green, sustainable energy that creates jobs. It is the very illustration of what we can do best in terms of preserving the environment and improving air quality. It is precisely in this spirit that we are signing an agreement today with Grand Chambéry in order to finance concrete actions that will bring a real breath of fresh air to this whole basin of life.
