Volkswagen affair a boost for power-to-gas?

17 december 2015

The energy news website published an article about the potential role of Power-to-Gas in reducing CO2 emissions from cars. The article states:

European carmakers are required to reduce their CO2-emissions, but the Volkswagen affair has shown they find it increasingly difficult to do so. There is a way out, however, writes energy consultant Mike Parr: they could follow the example of Audi and invest in power-to-gas systems. This would kill two birds with one stone, argues Parr: it would help decarbonise the transport sector and could enormously help the integration of variable renewables in the electricity market.

In this way, the Volkswagen affair could be a booster for Power-to-Gas.
