01. Our Vision

Accelerating the energy transition

Industrial players, local authorities, and public institutions are multiplying initiatives to develop the renewable/green hydrogen market in order to work concretely for the energy transition and virtuous growth. One of the main challenges is to produce clean hydrogen at an affordable cost ((less than €10/kg), but also to offer technological solutions, both for use and supply, that are economically coherent.

To reach these objectives, it is not only essential to convert the most fossil fuel-consuming sectors, such as mobility and industry, to green hydrogen, but also to provide them with innovative and smart options facilitating their transition to carbon-free solutions. Finding technologies to tackle these challenges and marketing them are EODev's mission. We offer solutions to accelerate the energy transition through cost-competitive deployment for both industrial and consumer uses.

02. Our Mission

Developing sustainable energy solutions

We have always been convinced that true progress is the one respecting the world we live in, and that our eco-friendly solutions should benefit to the greatest number.

Since innovation only takes on its full meaning if it is spread, and since the most extraordinary inventions are only of interest if they are shared, EODev relies on its own technological advances and those of its partners to design, develop, and produce accessible, high-performance solutions meeting the major challenges of the 21st century.

03. Our Values

04. Our Team

A Multidisciplinary Team

05. Our Story

From Experimentation to Industrialization

2013

Initiated in 2013 and implemented in 2017, Energy Observer is a floating laboratory focusing on renewable energies, led by Victorien Erussard, founder and captain.

2017

Launch of Energy Observer, the first energy self-sufficient vessel, with zero emissions, zero fine particles, and zero noise, producing its own hydrogen on-board from seawater using renewable energies.

2019

After five years of design and tests in real conditions of innovative hydrogen technologies, Energy Observer launches the operational activities of EODev thanks to the unfailing support of its historical partners, to finally move from demonstration to concrete solutions.

2020

Spring

Installation of the REXH2 on board Energy Observer for its first transatlantic race. This one is a success, so much so that Energy Observer will have to stay at sea two days longer than planned, the crew not being allowed to disembark until the quarantine linked to the sanitary restrictions due to the pandemic is over!

Summer

Presentation of the pre-production of the industrial version of the GEH2.

Finalization of the first round of financing to launch the industrialization of the production of GEH2 and REXH2. The Monnoyeur group joins the historical shareholders and partners of the Energy Observer group to launch the new phase.

Fall

Signature of a strategic partnership with the Monnoyeur Group, through its subsidiary Eneria, for the industrialization of the GEH2 at the Montlhéry site near Paris.

Presentation of the first production boat equipped with a REXH2 at the Monaco Yacht Club on September 23, 2020. The Cannes and Monaco yachting shows having been postponed due to Covid, the "afloat" launch is postponed to spring 2021.

Signature with Eneria of a distribution and maintenance agreement for GEH2 and REXH2 in mainland France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania and Algeria.

EODev acquires a stake in EVE System, a French specialist in the design and integration of embedded intelligence and battery systems.
