Power To Gas

Power-to-gas is the functional description of the conversion of electrical power into a gaseous energy carrier like e.g. hydrogen or methane. Circa 40 projects are currently in operation in Europe:

Links with other platforms

Our goal is to have as much as possible an open relation with other expertise groups, in order to disseminate bi-directionally all relevant information and to contribute to the state of the art of power-to-gas.

Our Way Of Working

Three times a year the Platform members gather at one of the offices of the partners (rotating) to update about experiences or study results. Additionally, agreements are made upon the continuation of the Platform and the work that will be done.

Exergetic Aspects of Hydrogen Energy Systems—The Case Study of a Fuel Cell Bus

  • 17 February 2017

Abstract: Electrifying transportation is a promising approach to alleviate climate change issues arising from increased emissions. This study examines a system for the production of hydrogen using renewable energy sources as well as its use in buses. The electricity requirements for the production of hydrogen through the electrolysis of water, are covered by renewable energy sources. Fuel cells are being used to utilize hydrogen to power the bus. Exergy analysis for the system is carried out. Based on a steady-state model of the processes, exergy efficiencies are calculated for all subsystems. The subsystems with the highest proportion of irreversibility are identified and compared. It is shown that PV panel has exergetic efficiency of 12.74%, wind turbine of 45%, electrolysis of 67%, and fuel cells of 40%. [...]

Our objectives
