French alliance boosts adoption of bio-methane and hydrogen mobility

La Poste Group and ENGIE, via its wholly owned subsidiary GNVert, are developing various eco-

mobility projects that make use of natural gas and hydrogen in conjunction with their green and

sustainable mobility goals. La Poste Group and ENGIE will be cooperating for example to design

refueling solutions for certain La Poste fleets of natural gas/renewable natural gas vehicles and

hydrogen vehicles.

Philippe Wahl, CEO of La Poste group, and Isabelle Kocher, CEO of ENGIE, signed a cooperation

agreement to develop various eco-mobility projects, in particular through the use of CNG, an

alternative fuel with recognized environmental and economic advantages, and hydrogen, a

promising fuel that offers good driving range that emits only water vapor. Their European scale

agreement covers 5 years.

The objective for La Poste Group is to establish its leadership in sustainable mobility by prioritizing

large-scale use of low CO2 fuel emission vehicles, making a significant contribution to reducing air

and noise pollution in cities. Through GNVert, the partnership will enable ENGIE to contribute to the

development of the promising alternative fuels market, based on fuels that are less CO2 emitting

and without particulates. The agreement also establishes conditions necessary for the development

of biomethane, a renewable natural gas fuel from methanization of waste.

At the same time, La Poste Group and ENGIE commit to collaborate on an awareness campaign and

coordinated communications on eco-mobility in conjunction with the energy transition.

La Poste is also engaged in an ambitious research and development program focused on the use of

the clean vehicles of tomorrow, testing cars and bicycles operating on hydrogen. For the past year,

La Poste Group is also involved in developing natural gas vehicles for use throughout France. As an

energy revolution pioneer, ENGIE considers transportation a major development focus. To

accelerate the adoption of alternative fuels, it has decided to invest up to €100 million over five

years to develop natural gas fuel for trucks in Europe. will-boost- adoption-of- biomethane-and- hydrogen-
