Powering the world of tomorrow

Powering the world of tomorrow

Climate change is the greatest global challenge of this generation. To face the climate emergency, Europe and France have launched their 2030 mandates, aiming to accelerate the ecological & energy transition, to massively reduce carbon emissions.

Renewable energies are essential for our future. Wind and solar power have made welcome contributions in reducing reliance on fossil fuels, however the sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow. We need new, predictable large scale sources of renewable energy to supplement the energy mix.

Tidal energy remains an untapped renewable energy source, which represents a huge opportunity for the Europe & France 2030 plan, with significant economic, environmental and social benefits.

We are convinced of the potential of tidal power in France and around the world. This is why Normandie Hydroliennes (NH) is committed to developing projects that will promote the commercial deployment of the marine renewable energy sector.
