A Hit for Hydrogen

Paris, France — Hydrogen and the Eiffel Tower, a match made in heaven or at least beneath the Parisian night sky. The operation dubbed Hydrogen Paris literally came to light on May 25th when the famous landmark was lit-up using de-carbonized hydrogen fuel, a source of clean and renewable energy. The event was organized by the Energy Observer with the support of the city of Paris and underscores the necessity of transitioning to sustainable energy sources and puts the spotlight on the hydrogen sector. Until May 30th an exposition, which is open the public on the weekend, organized by Energy Observer brings together systems and modes of transportation using hydrogen fuel.

Energy Observer has been navigating the waters of the Seven Seas since 2017 in a ship powered by sustainable fuel and is both a laboratory for and an advocate of the transition into sustainable energy sources. The ship was conceived to push to the limit the concept of zero transmissions while exploring and testing all kinds of solutions from hydrogen to solar to wind power. It is the first vessel in the world to generate and be powered by hydrogen. Energy Observer will sail the seas of the world for seven years in all making 60 stops around the word including 15 with the hydrogen exhibition which in three years has already welcomed some 300,000 visitors. Next on the agenda, the crossing of the Pacific.
