Power-to-Gas 

Transforming electricity from renewable energy sources into renewable gas 

Today, more than 90% of hydrogen production in the world is made from fossil fuels, mainly in the chemical and petrochemical industries.  

Although it is economical, the process used (methane reforming) is also a major emitter of CO2. In the logic of progressive decarbonisation of the world economy, the production of renewable hydrogen, by electrolysis of water, appears to be a particularly interesting alternative. On the one hand, because the electricity needed to power the electrolyser comes from renewable energies (solar and/or wind), there are therefore no greenhouse gas emissions. On the other hand, because the hydrogen produced can be stored, it can be redistributed when needed. This is called "Power-to-Gas". 

Providing flexibility to an energy system 

Renewable energies such as wind or photovoltaic power have a production that depends on weather conditions. Thus, when these conditions are very favourable, the production can locally exceed the demand, i.e., the traditional storage capacities of the electrical system. With Power-to-Gas, conversion into another form of energy is possible. It appears as a solution to offer an energy system the flexibility necessary to increase the use of renewable energies. 

Innovation and performance 

In February 2019, Storengy becomes a shareholder of Electrochaea, a major player in methanation on the Power-to-Gas market in Europe but also in the US. 

Electrochaea provides Storengy with a reactor in which hydrogen is combined with CO2 to produce synthetic methane by a biological methanation process. The advantage of this solution is that it does not require high temperatures to operate. Storengy is convinced that the Power-to-Gas market needs flexible installations, i.e., installations that can start and stop at any time to cope with variations in electricity production and consumption. The Electrochaea reactor therefore offers this flexibility, not needing high temperatures to be activated. 

Storengy's role in this collaboration 

As operators and integrators, we master and support the entire Power-to-Gas process, from electrolysis to the final contracting stage with renewable energy consumers. By leveraging our complementary skills with Electrochaea, we have the opportunity to become leaders in a growing market.
