to Gas) is a technology that converts power to fuel and therefore can be
utilized as an alternative way of electricity storage. When electricity prices
are low, power from wind energy can be converted into hydrogen by means of an
electrolyzer. The produced hydrogen together with CO2 can then be reformatted
into CH4 through a methanation process. Methane is very similar to natural gas
and therefore it can easily be supplied to the gas grid.
project, an Alkaline and a SOEC electrolyzer will be used to study the
performance comparison of the two systems from thermodynamic as well as
economic view. In both systems a methanator will be added to study the fuel
production (besides hydrogen). Thus there is a need for improvement that can be
achieved by using district heating in the system.
project should investigate the potential and feasibility for implementing
district heating into the process in order to improve system efficiency. This
shall be done from energy and economical viewpoints.
