Convinced that the success of renewable gas is based on the capacity to mobilise and bring together a large number of players from many different back

With 14 gas storage sites in France ensuring the supply of companies, communities and households with natural gas, Storengy is an indispensable link in the country’s security of energy supply. Thus, its storage capacities amounting to more than 100 TWh enable it to supply more than 50% of France’s gas demand during winter peaks.

As the share of intermittent renewable energy in the energy mix is growing, gas and its storage facilities are indispensable elements of the energy transition and a future scenario of zero carbon by the year 2050.

As of now, these facilities are able to store renewable gas such as biomethane or gas obtained from Power-to-Gas through the conversion of renewable power production surplus.

In order to accompany this transition in the best possible way, Storengy has committed itself to projects linked to the production and storage of pure hydrogen and synthetic methane, such as: 2 Power-to-Gas projects coupled to biogas production (MéthyCentre and Hycaunais) and one research project, RINGS (studying the behaviour of biomethane and hydrogen mixed with natural gas in order to manage their storage).

Furthermore, biomethane production through local partnerships, acquisitions or participations; Storengy’s ambition being to produce 15% of the biomethane volume injected into the network by 2030.

Thus, Storengy is fully in line with the DNA of France Gaz Renouvelables, whose ambition is the development of renewable gas at the service of the energy transition.Thus, Storengy is fully in line with the DNA of France Gaz Renouvelables, whose ambition is the development of renewable gas at the service of the energy transition.Gathering representatives from agriculture, the energy sector and different territories, France Gaz Renouvelables, aims to promote the position of green gas in the energy mix.Storengy’s commitment towards the association is to promote the benefits of renewable gas for the French energy transition.
