Power-to-gas (P2G) using
Professionals in the energy sector are faced with many challenges in the future energy mix. The inherent uncertainty in the production of wind and solar energy may result in an imbalance between supply and demand of energy that needs to be addressed.
Power-to-gas (P2G) using biological methanation (Bio-P2G), could be a valuable addition to the portfolio of solutions. In P2G, electricity is used to generate hydrogen from water and the hydrogen is converted to methane through conversion of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
This RaakPRO program investigates whether Bio-P2G is technologically and economically attractive as contribution towards balancing the supply and demand of renewable energy in the Netherlands.
It will evaluate the technological, economic and environmental feasibility of Bio-P2G.
This project aims to build up Dutch experience and expertise with this technology. It will outline the possibilities for implementation of Bio-P2G in the Dutch energy system. Different technological and economic set-ups for Bio-P2G will be evaluated for efficacy and feasibility. A small-to-medium scale pilot will be established at EnTranCe.
There will be more than 40 professionals participating in this project. More than 20 lecturers and over 150 students from at least six different bachelor studies and at least one master study are involved in this project.
