GL events chooses EODev to accelerate its energy transition

On Wednesday 27 October at 4pm at the HyVolution exhibition at the Paris Event Center (Paris, 19th district), the GL events Group and Energy Observer Developments (EODev) will officially signed the framework agreement for the supply of 100% hydrogen-powered mobile generators (GEH2®).

This revolutionary technology, developed and produced in France by EODev, will help accelerate the energy transition in the events sector.

As of mid-2022, the GL events Group will be able to provide its clients with an innovative service : sustainable energy produced on the event site itself, at an affordable price. As a starting point, four 100-kVA mobile electric generators running exclusively on hydrogen will add to GL events' power-distribution solutions.

This investment highlights the GL events Group's determination to be a forerunner as regards this innovative technology, which is fully in line with its sustainable development policy. With this new product offer, we want to support our clients in their efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their events.

We are delighted that a market leader such as GL events has chosen our technology to launch its hydrogen-based product offer. The event industry is a key area for the deployment of our solutions and zero pollution and noise reduction will soon be the norm in the sector. This contract underpins our development strategy, at a time when we are preparing to launch our new production line, which will produce around 200 generators a year for use on land and at sea.

Twelve years ago, the GL events Group took on a pioneering role in the event industry by initiating work on the environmental and societal performance of its product and service offers. Once again, the Group is betting on innovation to give events access to sustainable off-grid power production. This represents a real turning point for the sector's energy transition, and a further step forward in the Group's efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of its services.

In addition to producing no pollutant emissions, these mobile hydrogen power generators have the advantage of being ultra quiet when running and odorless. They also benefit from an instant start-up technology and an embedded smart system (4G connection and remote monitoring). And in addition, there is a double adduction system, enabling the generator to operate continuously. The hydrogen generator has also the possibility of being stacked on top of another GEH2 generator, thus reducing the footprint on the ground and raising their visibility. Last but not least, the co-generation system produces heat and/or domestic hot water, thus achieving yields close to 80%.
