Energy Transition

ENTSOG work is continuing to evolve: from fulfilment of its regulatory tasks assigned by the Third Energy Package, through to responding to future challenges and supporting Europe's energy transition, market competitiveness and security of energy supply. ENTSOG aims to contribute to the realisation of European Green Deal, including legislative initiatives within the 'Fit for 55' package, Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market package and the REPowerEU action plan. ENTSOG will also continue its work on Energy System Integration, specifically the development and planning of the EU hydrogen backbone via repurposing and retrofitting of existing pipelines, based on the revised TEN-E Regulation.

Challenges include addressing fluctuating gas qualities, framing the proper conditions for connecting decarbonised and renewable gases production, planning usage of gas grids from hydrogen and biogas friendly perspective or designing new data flows between TSOs and DSOs. Nevertheless, gas systems offer a long-distance transportation, a long-term energy storage, decarbonisation of heating and short-term demand management support tools.

ENTSOG will continue to engage with stakeholders along the whole value-chain via:

ENTSOG 2nd Annual Conference, 12 December 2018

Focusing on gas innovation, decarbonisation and the coupling of gas and electricity systems, ENTSOG Members (Transmission System Operators – TSOs) presented four innovative projects. These can be found on ENTSOG’s newly updated website called ‘Innovative Projects Platform’. The conference outcomes from the event support some of the conclusions of the last 31st Madrid Forum and ENTSOG sees these ideas as an important part of the potential gas legislation review in 2020.

Power to Gas – A Sector Coupling Perspective

To date, the electricity transmission grid and currently available technologies efficiently integrated renewable sources of electricity into the power system. The ongoing energy transition will require additional developments. Power to Gas – and other P2X (e.g. Power to Liquid, Power to Heat) may have the potential to reduce the cost of the decarbonised energy system in particular when the end consumption is either gas or other high value energy forms.
