Gas storage plays a decisive role in a carbon-neutral energy supply. The Power-to-Gas technology allows electricity from renewable sources to be converted into green gases and then be stored in gas storage facilities for longer periods of time. Thus, gas storage provides a means for renewable energies to be available at all times – on short notice and as flexibly as necessary.
Gas contributes significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gases. Gas is an ecologically advantageous energy used to create flexibility in electricity markets. In the long run gas can also be produced entirely by renewable sources. Thus it is an important part of solving the climate crisis.
Renewable or green gas is an energy carrier produced from renewable energy sources. On the one hand, there is biogas derived in a fermentation process from biomass. On the other hand, there is hydrogen or synthetical methane which is manufactured via the Power-to-Gas technology.
