Innovative 28 million € project STORE&GO started to show large-scale energy storage by Power-to-Gas is already possible today

Karlsruhe, March 18, 2016 – Our future energy systems will be based on intermittent renewable energy sources. These systems will need large scale energy storage in order to ensure the security of supply. Chemical energy carriers provide the highest energy density and especially gas provides the highest existing storage capacity as well, so it seems obvious to use surplus of renewable energies for the creation of synthetic natural gas (SNG) by Power-to-Gas technologies. While the technical feasibility has been shown in several research projects, the new Horizon 2020 project STORE&GO aims to bring the technology to a level to be integrated in the daily operation of European energy grids.
