DNV KEMA and ECN published a technology review report about power-to-gas technologies
5 juli 2013
The report ‘Systems analyses Power to Gas: A technology review‘ is the first deliverable in a larger project (TKIG01038 – Systems analyses power-to-gas pathways) that aims to assess the viability and future role of PtG in the Dutch energy system. This deliverable specifically presents an overview of static data about PtG system components and its power storage alternatives.
This project is funded by Stichting TKI Gas and the following consortium partners: Alliander, Energiebeheer Nederland (EBN), Energy Valley, Enexis, Nuon Vattenfall, N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie, Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI), Siemens Nederland, Taqa Global and Tennet.
The project is being carried out by Energy Research Centre the Netherlands (ECN) and DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability and is planned to be finalized in Q1 2014.

About the report:
Power-to-gas technology is emphatically distinctive from power storage technologies by its capability of resolving issues resulting from the integration of renewable energy sources in the existing energy system, such as supply/demand imbalance and transportation issues, by conversion of power into a valuable energy carrier that can be applied in different sectors.
