ENTSOG and its Members (TSOs) invites you to a new interactive platform called Innovative Projects Platform. 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. 

The result is the creation of a public platform for communication and exchange of best practices applied at national level. 

These innovative solutions focus on biogas, power to gas, hydrogen, CNG and other innovative applications to support the achievement of the current EU goals of reducing GHG emissions.

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.


Regulation & business model

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.



Look at new partnerships and initiatives formed by ENTSOG’s Members (TSOs). They are actively working together as well as with various stakeholders on projects aimed at decarbonisation of the gas sector and of the whole EU economy.



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.


Innovation & Transition

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

Power to gas

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.

Heating and cooling

Heating & Cooling

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.


Certification of green gases

To ensure the cross-border scale up and tradability of renewable, decarbonised and low-carbon gases. This can be achieved via pan European Guarantees of Origin and Certification Schemes.



A project promoted by the Regional and National Government and some private companies: Cemex, Enagás, Acciona and Redexis. The 10 MW green hydrogen production plant will be powered by a 16 MW solar plant. The project contemplates the use of green hydrogen in mobility, as well as its injection into the gas grid.


GASCADE, Gasunie


The project portfolio associated with the AquaVentus initiative includes various sub-projects along the value chain from the production of hydrogen in the North Sea to transportation to customers on the mainland. These coordinated projects synchronise demand and production, thereby facilitating market roll-out. In partnership with RWE, Shell, Island of Heligoland, Reuther, Vattenfall,  Siemens, Parkwind and MHI Vestas.

GASCADE, Gasunie, Fluxys


AquaDuctus is part of the project initiative AquaVentus and aims at transporting green hydrogen, which will be produced offshore in the German North Sea, to the island of Heligoland. At a later stage a connection to the German mainland and to the German national hydrogen network is foreseen. In partnership with RWE and Shell.

The consortium has conducted a feasibility study that produced the first results in late 2020. Seeing as these results are positive, the consortium aims to be able to start producing the first hydrogen around 2027.In partnership with Groningen seaport, Shell, Equinor, RWE, Groningen provincial authority, Enico.


GET H2 TransHyDE

The central fundamentals for the reliable operation of a climate-neutral hydrogen infrastructure are now being further deepened with a view to the future - RWE, Nowega, Rosen, Evonik, the University of Potsdam, the DVGW, Adlares, Meter-Q Solutions and OGE are working on practical solutions for the transport of hydrogen.



In the H2-suitability of steels project , materials that are currently used in Germany for the transport of natural gas are to be examined for their suitability for hydrogen. Random fracture mechanical tests should be carried out to check the steels used. The determined characteristic values ​​are compared with the results on which the American regulations ASME 31.12 are based. The transferability of the ASME standard to the steels used in Germany is then validated. In partnership with Materials Testing Office (MPA) Stuttgar, DVGW



Westküste 100

This project is about creating a regional hydrogen network on the basis of a 30 MW electrolysis plant connected to the grid of a municipal utility. The end-to-end hydrogen value chain will include industrial customers, a hydrogen filling station and end users supplied by the municipal utility.



hybridge – the name of the largescale power-to-gas project by Amprion and Open Grid Europe (OGE). From 2023 it is planned that the pilot plant will be able to convert up to 100 megawatts of electrical power into hydrogen. With this project, the aim is to further develop a technology that will play a key role in the transformation of our energy system.


Zukunft RuH2r

Zukunft RuH2r aims to create the infrastructural conditions for the provision of hydrogen to decarbonize regional industry between the Ruhr metropolitan region and South Westphalia. Together with the project partners ENERVIE, Vernetzt and Westnetz, the project partners are pursuing the establishment of demand clusters and an expansion of the hydrogen cluster into the neighboring regions.



The strategic goal of Get H2 is to combine regions with a high share of renewable energies from wind and solar sources with H2 production on an industrial scale. The focus is on the development of a nationwide H2 infrastructure with the coupling of all sectors.
