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 innovative technologies, regulation and business models, and partnerships across the value chain, ENTSOG have initiated the identification process to map TSOs’ Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) activities.
The result is the creation of a public platform for communication and exchange of best practices applied by EU TSOs.
These innovative TSOs 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Because CNG is a compressed form of the same gas we use in our homes, it can be used in a combustion engine. CNG combustion produces fewer undesirable gases than other fossil fuels.
The energy transition has consequences for all players in the market, and as a result costs have been rising. Individual stakeholders like Open Grid Europe are responding to this development in very different ways. Gas trading and storage, transmission capacities and, not least, costs: our video shows you what links up to what and how Open Grid Europe is attempting to counter the cost explosion resulting from the energy transformation with efficient products and intelligent solutions.
The project aims to make efficient biomass gasification applicable on an industrial scale. The installation will further investigate the MILENA, OLGA and ESME technologies developed by ECN and DRT. These technologies can convert biomass into renewable energy in the form of green gas with a very high efficiency (around seventy per cent) and without harmful environmental effects.
Gas for Climate is a consortium created in 2017 consisting of seven European TSOs (Snam, Enagás, Fluxys, Gasunie, GRTgaz, Open Grid Europe and TIGF) and two renewable gas industry associations (Consorzio Italiano Biogas and European Biogas Association). The consortium commissioned to Ecofys a study which shows that it is possible to scale up renewable gas production between now and 2050 to more than 120 billion m3 annually, including both renewable hydrogen and biomethane: this could save about €140 billion annually by 2050 compared to a future zero-emission energy system without any gas.
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.
Gasunie Deutschland, Tennet and Thyssengas will plan a 100 MW power-to-gas-installation. Planned operation in different phases from 2022. It will become the biggest power-to-gas-installation in Germany.
Alternative transport fuel will see Clean Ireland Recycling in Ireland become the first waste management company to operate CNG fuelled trucks.
