First structural investment in renewable energy 
Rubis enters into an industrial and financial partnership with Hydrogène de France, a world pioneer in hydrogen power 
Rubis and Hydrogène de France (HDF Energy), a world pioneer in the development of infrastructure to generate continuous 
or "on demand" hydrogen-fueled power from renewable energy sources (wind or solar power), have entered into a strategic 
partnership as part of HDF Energy's plans to launch an initial public offering. 
Rubis distributes energy for everyday life in 41 countries across three geographical regions (Africa/Indian Ocean, the 
Caribbean and Europe) and has decided, in addition to its distribution and storage operations, to invest in renewable 
energies. This partnership, upstream of a fast-growing segment that provides solutions for decarbonation, will enable 
the Group to make a defining foray into new energies with niches characteristics, keeping in line with its business 
HDF Energy is positioned as a developer of high-capacity power stations that run on green and carbon-free hydrogen 
through its excellent command of hydrogen fuel cell technology and design, a core aspect of the entire mechanism. HDF 
Energy's Renewstable(R) projects under development (power plants) represent a potential investment of EUR1.3 billion. 
Based on these strategic objectives, HDF Energy aims to reach EUR100 million in revenue for an EBITDA margin of around 
35% by 2025. 
Rubis is committed through this partnership to support HDF Energy's development: 
  ? by participating up to EUR50 million[1] in the capital increase to be carried out as part of HDF Energy's listing on 
    the regulated Euronext Paris market, with a view to becoming a strategic shareholder and by having a position of 
    director and a position of censor within the Board of Directors of HDF Energy[2]; 
  ? by benefiting, for a period of five years, of a priority to become a majority investor in the projects that HDF 
    Energy plans to develop in Africa/Indian Ocean, the Caribbean and Europe, allowing it to position itself as a 
    majority direct investor in renewable electricity generation projects, targeting a double-digit Internal Rate of 
    Return (IRR) on invested equity. Rubis will also be offered the opportunity to invest in projects in other parts of 
    the world, without requiring majority status in any given project. The Group will bring its insight into local 
    markets and provide HDF Energy with technical, logistical, administrative, and legal support for projects that will 
    be developed in the countries where Rubis operates. 
The two companies have been working together on two developments since 2016: 
  ? a 1 MW hydrogen fuel cell, put into operation in December 2019 at the SARA refinery (French Antilles) to use the 
    hydrogen produced by the refinery to supply renewable electricity to 2,000 households in Martinique (9,000-tonne 
    annual savings in carbon emissions); 
  ? the CEOG (Centrale Électrique de l'Ouest Guyanais - West Guyanese power plant) electrical power plant, which has 
    entered the final development phase. This is the world's first hydrogen-powered multi-megawatt electricity plant, 
    and it will produce renewable, stable and competitively-priced energy (annual production of 50 GWh) capable of 
    supplying the equivalent of 10,000 households all year round. 
"Together with Damien Havard, HDF Energy's founder and majority shareholder, we are led by a strong conviction 
regarding the value creation and acceleration of development capacities for hydrogen-powered electricity projects in 
the countries in which Rubis operates. Through this agreement, we are delighted to be taking to the next level the 
joint efforts we have been pursuing with HDF Energy over the past six years", commented the General & Managing Partners 
of Rubis SCA. 
About HDF Energy 
HDF Energy, a world pioneer in hydrogen-electricity, develops high-capacity large scale Hydrogen-to-Power plants and 
participates, through dedicated project companies, in their operations. These power stations will provide firm or 
on-demand electricity from renewable energy sources (wind or solar), combined with high power multi-megawatt fuel cells 
supplied by HDF Energy. HDF Energy has developed two types of turnkey Hydrogen-to-Power plants: 
  ? Renewstable(R) (POWER-TO-POWER) multi-megawatt turnkey power plants producing firm renewable electricity. These 
    power plants are composed of an intermittent renewable source and a long-term on-site hydrogen energy storage; 
  ? HyPower(R) (GAS-TO-POWER) plants that produce "on demand" electricity using green hydrogen or decarbonized hydrogen 
    harnessed from transport networks. 
HDF Energy integrates key fuel cell know-how, under a memorandum of understanding with Ballard (seven-year exclusive 
license agreement) and develops in France (Bordeaux area) the world's first mass production facility for high-power 
fuel cells to produce energy, which will be brought into service in 2023. Through this activity HDF Energy will also 
address the maritime and data center markets. 
HDF Energy is an accelerator of the energy transition. By offering grid-friendly and stable decarbonized electricity 
solutions. 100% renewable energy grids are now possible.
