The need

The increasing emergence of volatile electric energy caused by renewable sources leads to an increasing demand for energy storage capacities in the future.

Expected storage capacity needed in Germany: 10-25 TWh.

Chemical energy storage has a higher energy storing density.

The solution

  • The energy storage capacity of the natural gas infrastructure is higher than 100TWh
  • Power-to-Gas is the only possibility of long term energy storage
  • Possible business models:
    • Supply and regulation of energy
    • Production of chemical fuels
