Power to the molecules

2 DAY Residential Course

From technology to market uptake: power to molecules

 

The interactive 2-day training organised within the framework of the STORE&GO project will guide you through technical, economic, business, legal and regulatory aspects of Power-to-Gas (P2G).

This interdisciplinary training builds upon the practical experience of 27 STORE&GO partner organizations and companies from all over Europe, which joined forces to integrate P2G technology into the future of the European energy system.

Target group and knowledge level

Registration is open to all professionals (institutions, utilities, associations, academics and researchers) or students of any level who are interested in having a deeper understanding of the Power-to-Gas technology and its role in the decarbonisation of the EU economy.

No specific academic background is required. The language of instruction is English.

Learning Objectives

This training will provide specialist insight into:

  • why and how P2G can support the energy transition in Europe
  • the current technological developments in terms of electrolysis and methanation processes
  • the market potential of P2G
  • the role of P2G in achieving EU long-term climate and energy objectives
  • the impact of P2G on the environment
  • legal and regulatory challenges related to P2G
  • support schemes for the producers of hydrogen and synthetic methane
Overview

The integration of a rising share of variable renewable energy sources in the energy system is one of the major challenges of EU energy transition. P2G technology may help smooth over this transition as it offers the possibility to convert intermittent electricity from renewable sources into the form of gas, which can then be easily transported and stored in already-existing gas infrastructure. All in all, this process contributes to the decarbonisation of gas, which currently satisfies a quarter of the EU energy needs.

Despite the fact that P2G technology is already mature, no business cases based on P2G have emerged that confirm its impact on the energy sector. This training however won’t shy away from the topic and will expand on the current legal, technical and economic barriers to the widespread deployment of P2G technology.

What Participants say about this course

It is clear P2X technologies will play a relevant role in the energy transition we are all living, as well as the sector coupling and the decarbonisation of the gas market. This course has been a unique opportunity to deep dive into all aspects of this technologies, including economic and regulatory aspects.

Participant of the 2019 Edition

The content was very good and I liked very much that technical, regulatory and legal issues were all covered.

Participant of the 2019 Edition

The course was prepared remarkably well, very good pacing and organization of the learning sessions. Diverse and motivated audience helped keep discussion alive and interesting.

Participant of the 2019 Edition

It was very interesting topic, which will be the foundation for a lot of us to the usage of this method in a few years
