The EODev GEH2®, proposed by Eneria was tested by the technical means provider, TSF, was placed on the back of a truck, which also carried 44kg of compressed hydrogen, making the unit completely mobile to follow the film crew around the park in Château de Courances.

Over 12 hours at full power, EODev estimate the unit offers potential saving of nearly 700kg of carbon dioxide emissions, compared to the use of a diesel unit.

As more cities introduce low-emission zones (LEZ), which often host the set of films and series, the technology offers hope for a zero-emission future of filming, as well as other off-grid applications such as constriction sites.

EODev also says that the Centre National du Cinéma (CNC), a government body that funds developments for television projects, in 2021 established a roadmap to take the environmental impact of production into account.

Anthony Vernizeau, Sales Manager at EODev, said, “Until now we have been offering the GEH2® in stationary mode. Netflix’s request to TSF has enabled us to develop a mobile solution that is totally relevant for cinema.

“We have already received requests in the United States and Canada for similar applications but also for off-grid electric vehicle charging.”

Danys Bruyère, Deputy Managing Director of Technologies, at TSF, commented “It was a great experience. I think a lot of people in the film industry still don’t know the potential of this kind of solution, and we’re proud to be a forerunner in this field. It also allows Netflix to consider future filming without emissions.”
