Lhyfe wins the 1st low-carbon or renewable industry prize at the 2022 Hydrogenies Trophies for its innovations in hydrogen.
Lhyfe, a global pioneer and pure player in the production of renewable green hydrogen, won a 2022 HydrogenIs Trophy, as part of the competition rewarding the most dynamic and innovative players in the hydrogen sector in France.
This Prize was awarded to Lhyfe during a ceremony organized at the National Assembly, in the presence of the elected representatives of the study group on hydrogen chaired by MP Michel Delpon, ADEME and Philippe Boucly, president of France Hydrogène.
Six months after the inauguration of its first renewable hydrogen production site, Lhyfe wins the 1st prize for companies in the hydrogen sector in the “low-carbon or renewable industry” category.
Lhyfe has designed the world’s first industrial site to produce renewable hydrogen powered by wind turbines. The Nantes company is currently working on 91 projects in France and Europe, on land and at sea; and doubles its workforce every six months.
A major event for the hydrogen sector in France, Hydrogénies, the hydrogen trophies reward since 2019 an innovative project, a company or organization or a community that has carried out a remarkable project, or developed an innovative solution, in the field of hydrogen.
The Jury rewarded Lhyfe based on the following criteria:
- Extent of the project or implementation in terms of technical and industrial benefits
- Extent of project or achievement in terms of economic benefits: growth
- Scope of the project or implementation in terms of economic benefits: export
- Extent of the project or implementation in terms of social benefits (localized job creation)
- Extent of the project or achievement in terms of environmental benefits
- Originality of the innovative approach
- Impact on the measures of the Hydrogen Plan and the deployment of carbon-free hydrogen in industry re storage, mobility and territories
Matthieu Guesné, Founding President of Lhyfe:
We are very proud to see our commitment and expertise rewarded by the hydrogen community.
“This distinction comes at a time when the current context requires a rapid energy response that is commensurate with economic and environmental challenges.”
“We are convinced that ecological hydrogen – which we now produce on an industrial scale and at a competitive price – is part of this response; and we are already standing with communities and industry to meet these challenges together.”
Created in 2017 in Nantes (France), Lhyfe is a producer and supplier of green and renewable hydrogen for mobility and industry.
Finally, its production sites provide access to renewable hydrogen in industrial quantities, and enter a virtuous energy model oriented towards environmental benefit. Lhyfe has subsidiaries in Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain, it will soon have a hundred employees.
It is a member of France Hydrogen and Hydrogen Europe. Lhyfe inaugurated its first industrial green hydrogen production site in September 2021.
It already has 91 projects in France and Europe, some of which will reach major milestones in 2022, including the inauguration of a first offshore hydrogen production demonstrator and several foundation stone layings of new onshore production units.
