HDF Energy’s flagship ‘Renewstable’ product combines wind or solar generation with energy storage in the form of green hydrogen generated on site. 

The MoU will see the two companies cooperate in developing multi-megawatt power plants delivering stable, continuous green power to the grid.

Olivier Becht, French minister of foreign trade, said his country was committed to supporting Indonesia's energy transition.

Senior officials from the two companies said the partnership would enable Indonesia to not only overcome the “unique constraints due to its archipelago context” but also make the country a green hydrogen frontrunner in Asia.

The deal comes just a month after HDF Energy signed an MoU with Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) for green hydrogen cooperation in the Chipinge District, Manicaland Province of Zimbabwe – the country’s first green hydrogen power plant investment.
