Promises won’t impact climate change,
but your local resources will.

THROUGH FDE ACTIONS:

Since January 1st 3 289 041 tons of CO2 eq avoided
Which compensates the CO2 emissions for 597 084 household

FDE (Française De l’Énergie) is a multi-energies producer, which offers low carbon footprint solutions. We produce gaz, electricity and head from local resources or solar related energies. We valorize them locally, in order to benefit the inhabitants of the regions which we operate, in Hauts-de-France, in Wallonia and in Lorraine.

Focus on…

Abandoned Mine Methane

in Hauts-de-France and Wallonia

In Hauts-de-France and Wallonia, FDE capture abandoned mine methane which accumulates in the former coal mine galleries, in order to avoid emissions into the atmosphere, and add value. In Bethune for instance, 2 combined heat and power unit of a total capacity of 2.7 MW were installed in 2020. They produce electricity and head for approximatively 6000 households.

BIO-LNG and BIO-CO2

in Europe

At the beginning of 2022, Cryo Pur has joined the FDE Group. It is a unique French company with an expertise in the processing of biogas and its liquefaction into bio LNG and bio CO2, thus reinforcing the positioning of the Group in the production of energy solutions, allowing the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Solar Energy

In Lorraine, FDE has designed and built the largest thermal solar plan in France, injecting into a public district heating network, in Creutzwald. The Group develops also several projects of solar plans in order to rehabilitate industrial or mining wildernesses.

Our ambition towards 2026

To develop our portfolio of local energies solutions

To reduce emissions

Promises won't impact
climate change.
Your local resources, will.

Climate change is an undeniable reality. We can already see its serious consequences for our planet. It is now urgent to act.

At FDE, we refuse to participate in initiatives that generate pollution beyond our borders, even if they reduce the carbon footprint of our local territories. Whether it is a question of carbon footprint or pollution, there are no limits.

It is our duty to build sustainable energy solutions that move towards global carbon neutrality. Today, the most resilient and sustainable energy solution is even more self-evident: it is imperative that energy remains local, within short supply chains, as close as possible to the needs of local communities and consumers.

Considering these, at FDE, we are taking actions and offering tailor-made, local multi-energy solutions.

By making the most of local resources, our offer enables us to provide territories with energies with a triple benefit: reduced carbon footprint, economically competitive and contributing to the socio-economic development of the area. We choose abandoned sites, make the most of the potential of local suppliers and service providers, and participate in a local center of expertise that involves universities, local authorities and associations in the local energy project.

FDE lacks neither the resources nor the know-how to deploy tailor-made energy solutions for everyone and for the planet.

Our engineers embrace the energy transition with a pragmatic view.

Recovering abandoned mine gas avoids fatal gas emissions into the atmosphere, while local coal gas reduces the need to import much more carbon-intensive gases. Abundant solar energy is both local and renewable.

To support the energy transition, at FDE, we are constantly innovating, looking for new solutions for the future, such as hydrogen, a decarbonized energy, or CO2 sequestration in coal.

In addition, all energy produced by our Group is designed to be more virtuous. All these processes therefore make FDE the only French energy producer with a negative carbon footprint.

HSE POLICY

In accordance with its values and code of ethics, and with the aim of pursuing the objective of:

  • Guarantee the integrity of our assets,
  • Ensure a safe and healthy working environment for its employees and subcontractors,
  • Guarantee the health and safety of all personnel working on and off-site,
  • Limit environmental impact.

 

FDE wishes to promote the following HSE principles:

Identify, prevent and control impacts and risks to health, safety, security and the environment,

Develop the company's activities in a sustainable and eco-responsible manner,

Improve the working environment for its employees and subcontractors.

Consequently, FDE undertakes to:

Ensure the rigorous application of regulatory procedures in force with respect to safety, health, environment and the preservation of public security,

Impose operational management with advanced criteria for environmental protection, pollution prevention and energy optimization, as part of the ecological transition,

Systematically verify compliance with HSE principles through audits and practical exercises, with the aim of continuously improving the system and its performance,

Define indices and performance indicators for monitoring HSE activities and promote benchmarking to identify areas for improvement,

Encourage employee participation and involvement in health, safety and environmental protection processes through training and creation of tools for sharing experience and knowledge.

This culture of risk prevention and control applies to all employees, partners and suppliers. It involves setting concrete objectives and deploying action plans as part of a continuous improvement process to better anticipate tomorrow's challenges. This policy is reviewed annually, as are the associated indicators and targets.
