From technology to market uptake

20-21 February 2020 Karlsruhe, Germany. Register by e-mail!

Learn more about the various technical, economic, regulatory and social aspects that are relevant to power-to-gas technologies with our STORE&GO workshop. Part of HORIZON2020.

Climate change, renewable energy, low-carbon economy: For some, these are key themes and arguments, for others, they stand for a business sector that combines environmentally friendly technologies with a clear image to guarantee that we can leave a world worth living in for future generations.

The large-scale deployment of renewable energy sources (RES) is a key feature of de-fossilizing the energy supply. However, rapidly growing the share of fluctuating renewable power sources (like wind and solar)  in the energy mix requires coping with the intermittency. Therefore, the conversion of renewable electricity (RES-E) into the more convenient form of a gas could help offset fluctuating RES while providing a diverse mix of energy carriers. The Power-to-Gas (PtG) technology is one promising option in the context of these challenges. It enables a combined temporal and spatial balancing solution for a time when renewable energy will supply the major part of the electrical demand. Compared to other storage technologies like batteries or compressed air, PtG could offer long term seasonal storage solutions without any necessary alterations on the existing infrastructure. Therefore, the PtG process chain is expected to play a significant role in the future energy system. By this technology RES-E can be transformed into storable methane – synthetic natural gas (SNG) – via electrolysis and subsequent methanation.

In light of the HORIZON 2020, STORE&GO is proving the technical feasibility of methanation, and extensive research has been dedicated to the economic, juridical and social aspects of PtG. This event will provide you with a comprehensive overview on PtG process chains and technologies, their possible integration in European gas grids, and their system value for the European energy system.

*This event (incl. the online platform) can be attended without any cost. Note that accommodation and travel costs for participants won’t be covered by the event.
