Creation of a complete sector vision and supporting materials to assist funding organizations in efficiently supporting Power to Gas, including the consideration of mobility application to increase project profitability

Massive development of renewable electricity production from intermittent sources in Europe leads to periods of low spot prices of electricity, offering an opportunity for the development of flexible electro-intensive processes, and power-to-gas (hydrogen and synthetic methane) processes in particular. This study assesses the economic potential of power-to-gas and other power-to-X applications with a technical-economic modelling of six case studies targeting energy markets (i.e. gas injection into the grid, green mobility, heat production). This comparison was performed for three time horizons (2015, 2030 and 2050) offering different set of assumptions regarding prices of electricity and cost of technologies, in order to identify conditions required for business cases to be viable.

Based on the case studies considered and the various scenarios analyzed, this study shows that power-to-gas technologies have most potential when applied to green mobility markets. As such, their fate will be strongly correlated to policies and incentives implemented in the much broader perspective of the transport sector decarbonisation.  Illustration-Enea
