General presentation of McPhy Energy

Now let's have a closer look at the McPhy Energy group and its specific activities and main sources of income. This presentation is essential if you want to understand what the challenges and objectives of this company are for its future growth.

The McPhy Energy group is a French company specializing in the technological sector. To be a bit more specific, it's a French company specializing in the manufacture and sale of equipment for the production and storage of hydrogen in solid form from the electrolysis of water.

The group therefore offers electrolysers, storage contents and integrated solutions for the energy sector as well as the industry and transport sector.

Currently, the McPhy Energy group operates 3 production sites all located in Europe with one site in France, one in Germany and one in Italy.

It's also interesting to know the geographical distribution of the McPhy Energy group's income which currently generates 45.6% of its turnover in France and 42.1% in the rest of Europe. The rest of the turnover comes at 0.9% from the Middle East and Africa, 0.9% again from Asia Pacific and 0.9% from the Americas.

The major competitors of McPhy Energy

You must also know its main competitors to perfect your knowledge of the McPhy Energy group and understand what will be its challenges and threats to come. Here's a presentation of the company's biggest opponents:

Air Liquide 

First of all, you'll need to follow the French industrial group Air Liquide, which specializes in industrial gases, i.e. gases intended for industry, health, the environment and research. This group operates in over 90 countries around the world and has more than 3.6 million customers. It's also listed on the Paris stock exchange and is incorporated in the composition of the CAC 40 stock market index and other major indices. Air Liquide is currently number two in this sector.

Nikola Corporation 

Another of McPhy Energy's main competitors, you'll need to focus on the group Nikola Corporation. While it was initially an American car manufacturer based in Phoenix, the group is not only specialized in the design and production of alternative propulsion vehicles but has invested heavily in the field of hydrogen and its storage in recent years, which puts it in direct competition with McPhy.


Finally, the French industrial and energy group Engie is also one of Mc Phy Energy's competitors. The main shareholder of this group is still the French State which holds 23.64% of its shares and 33.84% of the voting rights. Engie was born from the merger between Gaz de France and Suez in 2008 and has since become one of the largest public service companies. This company should be closely monitored as the group embarked in a profound transformation based on energy and digital transition in 2016. Since then it specializes in the storage of hydrogen. Engie currently employs more than 158,000 people and its share is listed on the Euronext Paris market as well as in Brussels and Luxembourg. It's also included in the composition of the CAC 40, the CEL 20 index and the Euronext 100.

The major partners of McPhy Energy

Although the McPhy Energy group has some serious enemies, it can also count on strategic partners. So here are two tangible examples of this type of partnership:


First of all, in 2020, it's with the EDF group that the McPhy Energy group signed a strategic partnership agreement in the development of carbon-free hydrogen in France and internationally. It's an industrial and commercial partnership agreement for the development of carbon-free hydrogen in France and internationally. EDF has made an investment of 16 million euros in McPhy through the subscription to a reserved capital increase. By strengthening McPhy's financial capacities, growth will be sustained and the group can rely on EDF's strategic markets to increase its commercial development. EDF, for its part, has taken a new step in its contribution to the energy transition with EDF entering the carbon-free hydrogen market and the ambition to develop a competitive offer in the medium term.

De Nora

Another strategic partnership, set up this time in 2014, is the De Nora group with which McPhy Energy has launched a range of next-generation alkaline electrolysers. As part of this agreement, De Nora supplied McPhy with activated electrodes for its new generation line of alkaline electrolysers, which are more compact, more reactive and with a longer lifespan. This equipment was intended mainly for the energy and industrial sectors with improved technical and economic performance. The group is committed to increasing the performance of alkaline electrolysis technologies using patented high performance electrodes.


Also in 2014, the McPhy group signed a partnership agreement with GKN aimed at accelerating the distribution of its solid form hydrogen storage equipment by improving its competitiveness.
