Hy-way to Helium
45-8 ENERGY is the first company dedicated to the eco-friendly exploration and production of helium and natural hydrogen in Europe.
Our innovative approach aims to develop jointly and locally these resources as well as those that can be associated, to act for the ecological transition.
An answer to a real need
Helium and hydrogen are two strategic resources, essential to many industries.
Aware of the crucial issues involved in their supply, the founding partners wanted to put their solid experience in subsurface exploration at the service of 45-8 ENERGY in order to act concretely and sustainably in favour of the ecological transition and to commit to this new and unique exploration in Europe.
Multiple Research projects
Helium and natural hydrogen exploration is a real innovation with its own problematics. For this reason, 45-8 ENERGY is conducting many Research and Development projects in parallel with academic and industrial partners in order to develop effective and adapted technologies to efficiently and reliably detect them beneath Earth’s surface.
A company committed to the environment
At a time when 100% of European helium is imported at high-energy costs and carbon footprint, and when 95% of the world’s hydrogen production is still highly carbon-intensive, 45-8 ENERGY aims to develop an eco-friendly local helium and hydrogen supply chain which could therefore significantly reduce the environmental impact of such industry.

Helium and natural hydrogen at the heart of our activities
Our goal: responding, on an eco-reponsible way, to a tense market where demand is growing, particularly in a context where there are recurring shortages and where Western Europe is 100% dependent on sourcing helium from abroad from overseas markets.
Our business is dedicated to natural hydrogen, i.e. the hydrogen created naturally by our planet, found in certain specific geological contexts associated with helium. Natural hydrogen provides a complementary solution to the low-carbon hydrogen mix.
Our goal: responding, on an eco-responsible way, to a tense market where demand is growing, particularly in a context where there are many shortages and Western Europe is 100% dependent on countries outside its borders.
Our activity is dedicated to native hydrogen, i.e. hydrogen created naturally by our planet, usually in combination with helium. Native or natural, hydrogen provides an additional solution to the carbon hydrogen mix.
