To efficiently build on its Members efforts to promote or contribute to innovative technologies, regulation and business models, and partnerships across the value chain, ENTSOG have initiated the identification process to map TSOs’ partnerships on Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) activities for the energy transition.
The result is the creation of a public platform, the Innovative Projects Platform, for communication and exchange of best practices applied at national level.
These innovative solutions focus on hydrogen, CCS, biogas, power to gas and other innovative applications to support the achievement of the current EU goals of reducing GHG emissions and reaching the decarbonisation goal of net-zero by 2050.
Discover here how technologies can optimise the usage of the grid, make digital layer connections and support decarbonisation of the EU gas system. Technology R&D has a vital role in the energy transition. ENTSOG Members (TSOs) are developing new and innovative technologies to offer sustainable solutions for the gas sector.
Stay informed on how ENTSOG Members (TSOs) engage in development of the new energy products and services to foster uptake of renewable and decarbonised gases into the grid.
Hydrogen can be produced from diverse process technologies. Hydrogen can be produced via steam methane reforming and blended with natural gas to be transported via existing grid infrastructure and contribute towards decarbonisation.
Technological innovation is important for the transition to low carbon economy and combating climate change. New technologies such as power-to gas, biomethane, hydrogen, CNG will enable this transition.
Biogas is obtained via the anaerobic decomposition of the organic matter. After the process of upgrading, biogas becomes biomethane with the same quality standard as natural gas and can be transported via the existing grid infrastructure.
Carbon Capture and storage is the process of capturing waste CO2 from large point sources, such as fossil fuel power plants, transporting it to a storage site, and depositing it where it will not enter the atmosphere. The aim is to prevent the release of large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Power-to-gas is the conversion of electrical power into a gaseous energy carrier like e.g. hydrogen or methane. This technological concept is considered to be an important tool in the energy transition.
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a fuel source that is made from compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its standard atmospheric volume. CNG combustion produces fewer undesirable gases than other fossil fuels.
Digitalisation can bring various benefits to day-to-day operations such as enhanced control over the gas quality and cost reductions. TSOs look at data-driven solutions to boost performance, efficiency and competitiveness.
Cutting the energy consumption in heating and cooling in buildings and industry can be achieved through various technologies. TSOs are working on developing cost-efficient solutions for the decarbonisation of this sector.
The first accredited laboratory in Poland and in this part of Europe to calibrate gas meters with natural gas under operating pressure. The calibration facility is an innovative solution on a world scale offering a possibility to operate both close and open loop, which allows higher pressure drops on the tested gas meters. The LWG has been launched within the scope of GAZ-SYSTEM’s research and development projects with a primarily goal to increase reliability of energy measurement by increasing measurement accuracy of the gas meters within GAZ-SYSTEM as well as on the national and regional level. Apart from calibrations, LWG offers research and development activities in cooperation with outer institutions, producers and universities.
Alternative transport fuel will see Clean Ireland Recycling in Ireland become the first waste management company to operate CNG fuelled trucks.
