Lhyfe signs 16-year renewable PPA for its green hydrogen plant in Brittany

Lhyfe has signed a 16-year electricity supply contract with VSB Energies Nouvelles, under which 100% of the green electricity produced by VSB’s wind farm in Buléon will be for the Lhyfe Bretagne site. The 5 MW facility will produce up to 2 tonnes of hydrogen a day, supplying local mobility and industrial users.

In 2021, VSB Energies Nouvelles commissioned and currently operates the Buléon wind farm in the heart of the Morbihan region of Brittany, with a total capacity of 13.2 MW. Lhyfe Bretagne, a green hydrogen production site, is also located in Buléon and is scheduled to become operational in late 2023.

For VSB Energies Nouvelles, this Corporate PPA, which is the first in a long series to come, represents a real growth driver. It also illustrates the expertise of VSB’s teams and their ability to address the problem of intermittency in the production of electricity from renewable sources.

Through this contract, Lhyfe continues to strengthen its network of renewable electricity supply partners, securing a local and long-term supply of green electricity for the production of green hydrogen.

“As an operator committed to energy transition, we can only welcome the signing of this agreement,” said Mael Lagarde, Managing Director and owner of VSB Energies Nouvelles. “We are really in a virtuous circle here and in win-win mode. Supplying a hydrogen production facility helps to create green energy while providing an answer to the intermittency of wind turbines and the need for storage. We are really entering a new stage of energy transition here.”

“Thanks to this agreement, we are securing in a local and long-term manner our renewable electricity supply, which is essential for the production of renewable hydrogen. More broadly, we are strengthening our network of green energy suppliers, and thus reinforcing our positioning and our production model,” added Matthieu Guesné, CEO and founder of Lhyfe.
