Renewable Gas & Hydrogen
Gas does not mean “natural gas”. While natural gas is currently the most used resource, the gas sector is undergoing a major transformation, shifting away from fossil gases towards an increased introduction of low-carbon and renewable gases into its infrastructure. To accelerate this transition, a credible plan for the decarbonisation of the gas network and a detailed roadmap to give predictability on the availability of renewable gases is needed – including targets for renewable gas consumption.
Renewable and low-carbon gases should also reach gas power plants, as important contributors to the stability of the grid and security of supply.
Renewable and low-carbon gases should also reach turbine-based gas power plants, as important contributors to the stability of the electricity grid and providers of heat for industrial processes and district heating networks. In line with the evolution of the gas infrastructure, EUTurbines members are intensively working on the adaption of the technology to different gases and gas qualities.
