Power-to-gas electrolysis technology, a game changer for European energy storage?

Featuring Ross McCracken and Henry Edwardes-Evans

February 4, 2015 07:15:00 EST (6:48 mins)

Power-to-gas electrolysis is viewed as an emerging energy storage technology in Europe. In this video, Ross McCracken and Henry Edwardes-Evans assess this new form of alternative gas production, where surplus electricity is converted -- notably from renewables -- into hydrogen, which can then be injected into the natural gas grid, with gas then being used during peak demand periods to produce electricity. The business case for the technology relies on selling electricity into lucrative balancing power markets.
