Eiffel Tower illuminated using hydrogen for the first time ever

One of the world’s most recognisable landmarks, the Eiffel Tower – or as the French call it, La Tour Eiffel – was lit up with hydrogen-powered spotlights for the first time ever in May.

The laser show, which took place during the ‘Paris de l’hydrogène’ event organised by Energy Observer, was powered by certified renewable hydrogen supplied by Air Liquide and zero-emission electro hydrogen generators developed by Energy Observer Developments (EODev). This same electro hydrogen generator also powered the exhibition village during the 10-day event.

The symbolic moment saw the Eiffel Tower structure lit up a striking blue-green hue, soundtracked by an original musical composition by Jean-Benoît Dunckel (Air).
