MEMBERS INNOVATIVE ACTIVITIES

PARTNERSHIP

Partnership

Partnerships are a great way forward to enable decarbonization of the gas sector. ENTSOG’s Members (TSOs) are engaging in new partnerships and initiatives such as the Green Gas Initiative, Gas for Climate initiative and are active via the European Power to Gas Platform, to name a few examples. Our TSOs are actively working together as well as with various private stakeholders on projects aimed to offer sustainable solutions for the gas sector and of the whole EU economy. Please have a look at some of the examples below.

Green Gas Initiative, European Power to Gas, Gas for climate

Partnerships

ENTSOG and its TSO members are engaging in partnership organisations to assess and create awareness about the role of renewable and low carbon gas in the future energy system.

Open Grid Europe GmbH

Amprion and OGE to boost power-to-gas in Germany

Amprion and Open Grid Europe (OGE) are joining forces to press ahead with intelligent sector coupling. The two companies are planning to trial the power-to-gas (PtG) technology on an industrial scale to help accelerate the energy transition. The aim is to build PtG plants in the 50 to 100 MW range. Potential sites in Lower Saxony and northern North Rhine-Westphalia have been identified.

Energinet, Gasunie

North Sea Wind Power Hub

TenneT Netherlands, TenneT Germany, Energinet, Gasunie and Port of Rotterdam joined to build an artificial island in the North Sea to host synergy technologies such as Power2Gas. The hub provides a basis for a joint European approach up to 2050 and focuses specifically on developing the North Sea as a source and a distribution centre for Europe’s energy transition.

GRTgaz

FenHYx

FenHYx is a first demonstrator on a European scale to test hydrogen and decarbonised gases in the networks.The FenHYx platform in particular aims to reproduce the features of gas networks and especially those of the gas transmission networks: compression, expansion, measurement, analysis, injection loop, etc. The opening up of this platform to other operators will contribute to the emergence of the hydrogen sector.

Fluxys Belgium S.A.

Port of Antwerp and Fluxys team up for CO2 capture

In the first phase, Antwerp Port Authority and Fluxys are studying the feasibility of solutions for capturing CO2 from industry in the port, transporting it by pipeline or ship and finally re-using or storing it. If the results of the feasibility study are positive then the aim is to jointly promote practical projects.

Fluxys Belgium S.A.

Gaz Métro and Fluxys

Gaz Metro and Fluxys work together to develop the liquefied and compressed natural gas market. The agreement will pave the way for an exchange of information and expertise related to LNG and CNG, particularly on the technical, commercial, contractual, regulatory, fiscal and administrative fronts. The two parties, which indirectly share a major shareholder in the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, have also agreed to explore co-investment opportunities as interesting projects take shape.
