Abstract

Power-to-gas (P2G) is the process whereby electricity is used to produce hydrogen or synthetic natural gas. The electricity for the P2G process could, for instance, come from renewable energy which would otherwise be curtailed due to system or line constraints. The existing natural gas network could then potentially be used as a means to store, transport, and reutilize this energy, thus preventing its waste. While there are several ongoing discussions on P2G in different countries, these are generally not backed by quantitative studies on its potential network implications and benefits. To bridge this gap, this paper introduces an original methodology to analyze different P2G processes and a..
